Creepy fantasist Mix Cellini (Luke Treadaway) continues to construct an elaborate, twisted “romance” with dim model Nerissa Nash as this not entirely successful adaptation of Ruth Rendell’s psychological thriller continues.
Mix slowly loses what is left of his grip on reality while Nerissa has problems of her own, swapping the attentions of one narcissist for another when she throws herself at a self- obsessed jerk she’s known since she was a child. The ending is little more than a tottering pile of shocks, and you might be tempted to giggle when the identity of the “ghost” of mass murderer John Reginald Christie, Mix’s idol, is revealed.
Conclusion of the psychological thriller based on the novel. When Mix finally comes face to face with supermodel Nerissa, reality begins to merge with fantasy, and when Gwendolen returns from hospital he compounds one heinous act with another in a misguided attempt to protect the woman he loves. As his obsessions collide, Mix begins a rapid descent into insanity. Luke Treadaway, Geraldine James, Gemma Jones and Elarica Gallacher star.
