"Robin Williams Delivers A Brave And Terrifying Performance"
-Andrew Johnston, US WEEKLY

"Will Likely Do For Snapshots What 'Psycho' Did For Showers"
-Bruce Handy, VANITY FAIR

Robin Williams delivers his "finest hour" (USA Today) in "one of the most absorbing, effective thrillers in yeas" (NBC-TV). Sy "the photo guy" Parrish (Williams) has lovingly developed photos for the Yorkin family since their son was a baby. But as the Yorkins' lives become fuller, Sy's only seems lonelier, until he eventually believes he's part of their family. When "Uncle" Sy's picture-perfect fantasy collides with an ugly dose of reality, what happens next "has the spine-tingling elements of the best psychological thrillers!" (The New York Observer)

My Comments:

Creepy, yes, but not really frightening. To me, this watches more like a drama about a lonely man who lives vicariously through what seems like a perfect family.
