very well done,suspenseful TV movie

as a made for TV movie,this is actually quite good.the acting,especially by Kristy Swanson is above par.she makes a credible protagonist.the movie has plenty of suspense and is less predictable than most.the story concerns a woman(Swanson)who,despite years of therapy is still haunted with nightmares/memories of a traumatic childhood event. it turns out there is a mystery behind it all, and Alexandra must discover the truth before it's too late.there are a few suspects who could be the villain(along with a few scenarios) and,though i did eventually figure out the mystery and the villain,it took longer than i thought it would.even so,i wasn't completely sure until almost the end.to me,this is a sign of a good mystery movie.i'd recommend this movie to anyone,who wants a movie with some intelligence behind it.i give "Forbidden Secrets" a strong 8/10

Should Have Been More Mysterious

The tragedy you see after the opening credits causes nightmares for grown-up blonde beauty Kristy Swanson (as Alexandra "Alex" Kent). Although it was the scene of the horrific drama she experienced as a cute little girl, Ms. Swanson has decided to move back into the luxurious brownstone. She's also decided to shed successful husband Charles Powell (as Dan Lambeth) – in spite of his very cool hairdo. Swanson quickly considers bedding her insane mother's doctor David Keeley (as Mike Stanheight). He has cool hair, too. In the old home again, our heroine takes a swim in the indoor pool. Then, she begins to act really weird. Swanson tries to piece together mysteries from the past while maintaining her own sanity. Her busy psychiatrist Christopher Bondy (as Sam Bradburn) thinks Swanson should have stayed away from the brownstone and all the "Forbidden Secrets" dwelling inside...

This is not a bad revision, by writer Karen Craig and director Richard Roy, of some commonly used plot points. But, it gets off to a bad start by not identifying mysteries. Know that the flashback opening is woefully incomplete; perhaps, including a shadowy figure would have heightened interest. The "key" element used to tie things tougher is the silver necklace Swanson often wears. You can see why any woman would want to wear it all the time – well, not. Some of the story stretches credulity too much – like how Swanson can't locate a certain room. She should simply ask the contractor, who could analyze the brownstone's entire structure. And, the drawing is obvious, but few in the cast seems to have a clue. There are some rough edges (watch that continuity on the couch), also. In supporting roles, head contractor Richard Jutras (as Ed) and girlfriend Marianne Farley (as Gina) are terrific.

Not a bad flick...

Like Canadian wine, Canadian movies are getting better. This one has a gripping plot. I rather like the fact that you don't really know who the good guys and the bad guys are until the very end. It's a psychological thriller. It's not Psycho but it's also not bad. I guessed correctly that the film was shot in Montreal. Those distinctive staircases were a dead giveaway. So why wasn't the story set in Montreal. This was a Canadian production done by and for Canadian movie channels and financed with healthy Canadian and Quebec government grants and tax breaks. Yet quite apart from keeping Montreal a deep dark secret, they go so far as to fly American flags in some scenes. Do we really have to pander to the American market in such a demeaning manner? Americans watch movies set in Paris or London. Why do we assume they will not watch one set in Montreal?
