Editorial Reviews

Nightmares of the past haunt the beautiful, mysterious Olivia (Suzanna Love), a London resident who begins a passionate affair with American businessman Mike (Easy Rider's Robert Walker, Jr.). Trapped in a loveless marriage and traumatized by memories of her mother's brutal murder, Olivia hopes her lover will offer a chance at a new life. However, ghostly voices and brutal murders ignite a fiendish, twist-filled story of double identities, deception, and erotic terror. Before Basic Instinct and Fatal Attraction, this sexually charged thriller from the creator of The Boogeyman shocked audiences with its unflinching portrayal of female desire mingled with blood-chilling violence! Now presented newly remastered and uncensored from the original negative, this haunting exercise in suspense will leave you breathless!

2.0 out of 5 stars horror film that could have been better June 4, 2005
By Beth
Format:DVD
A young girl Olivia witnesses her prostitute mother get murdered by a client. Years later she becomes a bored housewife marked by the past. Another man Robert Walker Jr. enters the picture but her double life catches up with her. The movie's fine until the second half when it decides to add in a "Vertigo" like element and falters because of it. Suzanna Love and Robert Walker Jr. give good performances. Even with its problems it still is an improvement over Ulli Lommel's previous Boogeyman.

While Ulli Lommel is best known in the States as the director of the eighties ghost-slasher flick "The Boogey Man", he has directed many other films. They seem to have deteriorated in quality over the years, but he's still cranking them out, even now in 2009. In my opinion the eighties were his best years creatively, and alongside "The Boogey Man" he made a series of other gory thrillers, including "The Devonsville Terror", "Brainwaves", and "Olivia". He cast his then-wife, Dupont heiress Suzanna Love, in all of his films during this period, and even after their divorce she continued working for him. Suzanna, who had already had small roles in Milos Forman's "Hair", as well as a couple of Lommel's other films, became a fetching and beguiling leading lady, and she brought something sympathetic and touching to all of her performances. I think that "Olivia" is the best collaboration of their careers. The title character in "Olivia" is a little girl, living in London, who witnesses the violent murder of her prostitute mother by one of her johns. Deeply traumatized, Olivia (Love) grows up to be a bored, working-class housewife. Her belligerent husband, who apparently knows nothing of his wife's experience, is condescending and cruel. He will not let Olivia work, and she spends her nights watching the hookers who work the nearby London Bridge. She begins hearing her dead mother's voice in her head, encouraging her to work as a prostitute. She does, and at her mother's command she murders one of her johns. She meets an American and falls in love, and when her husband discovers her secret life, he attempts to murder her new man. But he is killed instead, by a fall from the bridge during the scuffle.
