The story has been done many times, often better. Asia's performance is the only redeemable quality about this film. Actually, the lighting was done really well too. I'm a fan of Ms. Argento so I watched the whole thing, otherwise I would have bailed in under a half hour. Dennis Hopper seems like he he had about as much enthusiasm for this role as he would about cutting his toenails, and put in just about the same amount of effort. The other two main actors gave passable performances, but unless you're an Asia Argento fan, there isn't really much to recommend about this film.

I'm a big fan of beautiful and gorgeous Asia Argento (XXX, Land Of The Dead, Dracula 3D, The Church & Demons 2) and also Dennis Hopper (R.I.P.) too. I've seen a lot really good films he has done. But this film was really good too. It did a lot of dialogue but I wanted to know how Krebs got so messed up in the head. Krebs live in this isolated house out in the woods. (Nice house though.) I enjoy the storyline and the action. If you like Asia Argento and Dennis Hopper you'll love it. Including great other performances and role by Helen Shaver & Lochlyn Munro. I recommend this film.
Den miserablen Rezensionen zum Trotz möchte ich kurz sagen, dass mir dieser Film ausgesprochen gut gefallen hat. Er kam neulich etwas später im Fernsehen "In seiner Gewalt" (deutscher Titel) und hat mich tatsächlich so gefesselt, dass ich keine Sekunde verpassen wollte. Ich finde, dass die Story überhaupt nicht an den Haaren herbeigezogen wirkt. Die Charaktere sind vielschichtig und obendrein glänzend synchronisiert. Wer sich nicht die TV-Movie-Edition kauft, bekommt hier den originalen Ton sowie ein Making Of und Interviews mit dazu.
