Remember Me” is a beautifully photographed psycho-thriller with a surprising plot twist that will keep auds guessing about the motives of the principals until the end. Story has ghosts, history, murder, sexual intrigue and a tragedy — entertaining stuff here.

Menley Nichols (Kelly McGillis) is a successful children’s book writer and her husband, Adam (Cotter Smith), is the country’s preeminent criminal attorney. They have a fairy-tale life until their little boy is killed and Menley, blaming herself, checks into a mental hospital.

Flash forward two years as the ever-faithful Adam and Menley, with their new baby, Hannah, rent a magnificent oceanfront mansion in Massachusetts for the summer. But wait — the house may be haunted. Or it may be the Alzheimer’s patient next door who pops up at spooky times with dire pronouncements. Or is it Adam and his old g.f. from college trying to drive Menley over the edge?

Events work to undo Menley’s mental stability and happiness with a satisfying and twisted conclusion. The scripters have done a good job of sifting Clark’s novel down to this two-hour telepic; Clark even has a cameo as a fan of Menley’s books.

McGillis is believable as the torturedyet ultimately strong Menley, and Shanna Reed is very good as Adam’s old flame, Elaine.

Production designer Rob Draper creates an effective world of light and darkness, complementing and adding to the texture and dimension of the narrative.
