Format: VHS Tape
A brilliant spellbinding thriller in the genre of classic Film Noir, directed by Bob Swaim, winner of several French Cesars for his now classic French film, La Balance. Like in La Balance, Swaim's European sensibilities mixed with his American pacing makes this film not only one of the great suspenseful thrillers of the 80's but perhaps one of the most original. It's Meg Tilly's hottest, sexiest film and Rob Lowe's most convincing portrayal of a complex and contradictory character. Aside from being incredibly sexy, the film is full of twists and turns that keep the audience guessing. Why don't they make films like that, anymore? And what ever happened to Bob Swaim?
The supporting roles are fabulous, particularly John Glover and Dana Delanny who give one of the best performances of their careers. Truly a classic, this underrated film deserves to be re-discovered.

A handsome gigolo, Tim Whalen (Rob Lowe), meets a wealthy heiress, Olivia Lawrence (Meg Tilley), and her selfish and domineering stepfather is far from happy with their relationship. The local cop (Doug Savant) also expresses an interest in the Lawrence girl.
A subsequent string of murders puts each of the characters under suspicion and the wealthy Lawrence girl is suddenly caught up in a murderous plot that will see both her inheritance and her life put at risk.
'Masquerade' is a tense thriller containing a multitude of twists and turns that keep the viewer guessing to the end. It is in the same vein as 'Bad Influence', 'Sleeping with the Enemy', and 'Dead Calm'. I first watched this film when it was released on VHS in 1988 ... it is still as exciting today.
Watch it with someone you can trust.
Also stars Kim Cattrall and John Glover.
The extras include widescreen format and DVD quality picture.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Lord Darkseid on November 30, 2011
Format: DVD
The synopsis of the film didn't intrigue me so I took a gamble on it and I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed this one. Throughout the film there are some twists as the story evolves. Unfortunately the main lesson is that money truly can be the route to all evil. It is a painful lesson but also I rated the movie only 3 stars because I felt the overall tone of the film was so cynical and I wasn't completely satisfied with the ending. It seemed rather anticlimactic especially when all of the deceit was exposed. There are some familiar tv stars you'll see throughout the film when they were much younger. Kim Cattrall, Doug Savant and Dana Delaney to name a few. By the way, I disagree with the other reviewer saying that the film is too sexually explicit. It doesn't even come close to Basic Instinct which also shares an R rating. The R rating here is appropriate and its a normal amount of sex. This is also more of a psychological thriller so the violence is minimum. There are a few "thrills" but nothing too heavy. You can see more violence on any typical modern day cop show. Still, I did enjoy the movie overall so I recommend it as a movie night treat.

Masquerade is a pretty good movie that although not action packed, keeps you guessing. When you think you have it figured out it will give a twist and turn that will surprise you. A good romantic thriller that is well cast with Rob Lowe, Meg Tilly, Kim Cattrall, John Glover, and Doug Savant. The character development and directing is good. Sets, scenery, and music are pleasant. Overall a unique surprise to me as I didn't know what to expect going into it. If you enjoy movies like "Black Widow" you will probably like it. Lowe plays a yacht captain that falls in love with a wealthy young woman. That would be good except he has a shady past. Add to that her stepfather is against them seeing each other, or is he? Good quality DVD with no extras, but decent replayability.

A handsome gigolo charms his way into the life of a beautiful young woman, heiress to a multi-million dollar fortune. After the loss of her mother, she lives with her self-indulgent stepfather, a ruthless cad intent on controlling both his stepdaughter's inheritance and her relationships. A local police officer also shows emotional interest in the heiress, having known her since childhood. But who can she really trust? 'Masquerade'is a dark and moody thriller, focusing on themes of money and greed, trust and betrayal. Reasonably-paced, and containing a multitude of twists and turns, 'Masquerade' is undoubtedly one of Rob Lowe's better thrillers. It is in the same vein as 'Bad Influence' and 'First Degree', with a talented supporting cast, including Meg Tilly and 'Sex and the City's' Kim Cattrall.

Format: VHS Tape
"Masquerade" takes places in a beautiful East Coast town, where a young, naive heiress, Olivia Lawrence (played by Meg Tilly), falls for a poor professional sailor, Tim Whalen (Rob Lowe). Olivia is without a family (her parents died, and she's an only child), but her detested, alcoholic stepfather, Tony Gateworth (John Glover), still hangs around. Unbeknown to her, Tony is in cahoots with Tim to swindle her out of her millions. Yet this secret is just a first of many to develop in this romantic thriller.
"Masquerade" has been a favorite of mine since I was a teenager, though I did deduct a ½ star for the ridiculous boat accident with the rat at the end (poor rat). Regardless, this movie has everything: a great setting, suspenseful plot, heated romance, and a pretty good conclusion to satisfy most viewers. Rated R for several sex/nude scenes (Rob Lowe's derriere is visible quite a bit, for those who are interested) and some profanity.
