Two women, one plan. We'll poison the creep who treats us like dirt, they agree. We'll dump the body in a murky pool, and someone will find a surprise at the bottom. There's a surprise, all right. When the pool is drained and cleaned, no body is found. Sharon Stone and Isabelle Adjani pour on the femme and the fatale in a diabolical grabber of a suspense thriller directed by Jeremiah Chechik (Benny and Joon) and based in part on the classic 1955 French spellbinder Les Diaboliques. Will the women get away with bloody murder? Has someone removed the body of the victim (Chazz Palminteri) and begun playing mind games with them? Add to the mix a tough cookie of a detective (Kathy Bates) and you've got the ingredients for "a nail-biter from the first scene to the last" (Bob Polunsky, KENS-TV/San Antonio).

Rotten: The husband is still a brute, and the swimming pool is still moldy, but the new Diabolique fails to translate into anything more than the latest ham-handed Hollywood makeover of a European classic.
Love this movie and thats why Im giv it 5 stars but... I rented at 10pm and by 12 the next day it was gone. Not cool iTunes. I fell asleep and wanted to watch the end the next day. WHY why why. I've never had this problem before.
Good, but want to see the original
I really liked this movie..the plot was good, and the acting was great. I want to see the original though. I don't know it I would buy it but it's definitely worth renting. Check it out.
