Coming Out at 21 July 2000 in theaters

Drama, Fantasy, Horror

What Lies Beneath is supernatural horror film directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer as a couple who experience a strange haunting of their home. It was the first film by Zemeckis’ production company ImageMovers. The film opened in 2,813 theaters in North America, and grossed $291 million at the worldwide box office, becoming the tenth-highest-grossing film of the year. It received mixed reviews, but was nominated for three Saturn Awards.

After her daughter Caitlin leaves for college, Vermont housewife Claire Spencer begins noticing the volatile relationship between new neighbors, Mary and Warren Feur. Claire’s husband Norman, an accomplished scientist and professor, dismisses her preoccupation.

After failing to see Mary for several days, Claire suspects that Warren may have killed her. Claire sees the image of a woman floating in the lake, and discovers an odd key inside a heater vent in her home. Claire and her mystic friend Jody unsuccessfully hold a séance to contact Mary, after which Claire finds the bathtub filled with hot water and, “You know,” written on the mirror. Claire then finds her computer inexplicably typing “MEF” repeatedly. Claire becomes convinced Mary is haunting her, but Norman is unconvinced. Several days later, Mary returns home alive and well, saying that she was with her mother in Rhode Island after a fight with Warren.
