Very good 90's suspense thriller
Verified purchase
When it starts off, you think you know where it's going, but then...
it takes another turn and keeps you guessing. Clever ending ;)
The writer wrote some other good movies: The Entity, The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan, Trapped 1973, Audrey Rose, and one that I haven't seen yet - but is on Amazon - the Penthouse.

Spoiler: The production design of R Bailey's apartment was fantastic. From the first scene in this apartment until the end, the movie keeps up. Really interesting details and set up.

Terrific Thriller

It often amazes me that a great thriller like "Scissors" is no longer available on DVD. Imagine the plight of Angie Anderson(Sharon Stone}. After defending herself from an attacker on an elevator by using a pair of scissors she weeks later finds herself trapped in a swank apartment in a building which is in total renovation with a dead man who has been bludgeoned by the very same scissors. Imagine her horror when she finds out that there is no food, no water, and no way of calling for help due to the fact that anything which could be used to break a window and call for help has been bolted to the floor. This plus the fact that she has been under psychiatric help and has been hearing voices and seeing things for some time. While trapped she hears wails from her cat, which she left at her own apartment, and is harassed by a parrot who keeps on saying that she killed the man. Very scary stuff indeed. Scissors was well crafted and the ending is in no way telegraphed due to the numerous "red herrings" included in the plotline. I very highly recommend this film!

This movie is a little off beat but I really liked it Sharon Stone was amazing as usual. I’m happy to say the movie arrived ahead of time and in new condition.

I watched this movie when it first came out in the early 90's. I was very happy to find it and watch it again. I order a lot of movies and most I don't find the time to watch for weeks. I watched this the same day I got it.
