Plot Synopsis:

This chilling romantic mystery from director Robert Zemeckis (FORREST GUMP, CONTACT, BACK TO THE FUTURE) casts Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer as a quiet couple living in the hills of Vermont.

A sexy and suspenseful film, WHAT LIES BENEATH will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.
