A Perfect Suspense Thriller
5 July 2004 | by AngellebabieSee all my reviews

Not to be confused with the TV show of the same name, Sister Sister the movie is a Suspense Thriller! If you are expecting a comedy about twins separated at birth make sure you read the DVD box and go pick something else.

Set on the beautiful and mysterious bayou's of Louisiana. It follows the relationship between two sisters who have to keep a awful secret from childhood and what lengths they will go to, to keep that secret under wraps.

Judith Ivy's performance as the older protective sister is stellar and that goes the same for, screen chemistry between Eric Stolz and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Be prepared for twists and turns in this one. And a Paranormal touch too.

If you watch it for anything watch it for the mystery and the stunning dream sequences.
