"Masquerade" is a sordid tale of greed, deception and murder. Meg Tilly stars as Olivia Lawrence, member of the Hamptons social elite and heiress to a vast fortune, who becomes attracted to dangerous newcomer Tim Whalen (Rob Lowe). She unwittingly falls into his web of deceit, as he and her stepfather (John Glover) plot her murder in order to gain the $3,000,000 in her trust fund. Inspired in plot by the film noir classics with an 80's style.

"Masquerade" is a movie that I've only seen few times, but each time I'm more impressed by the acting of Meg Tilly. I really enjoy all the plot twists and it kind of has an 80's Hitchcock feel to it. Not in that league actually, but I just wanted to use the word Hitchcock to see if it worked as Paul promised.

Muffy will probably enjoy "Masquerade" because the word "steamy" definitely applies for some the nudity in this flick. I had heard that Rob Lowe made a sex tape in the 80's, I just didn't know it was this movie.

Something I really enjoy about going backing and watching 80's movies is finding actors/actresses that have since gone on to some since of fame. "Masquerade" does not disappoint:
Rob Lowe, Kim Cattrall, Doug Savant, and Dana Delany.

If you've never seen "Masquerade" I highly recommend it..

I remember this tanking when it came out. Not a bad little thriller.

Re-watched Masquerade for the first time in many years and came away really digging it!

Has a good cast and some absolutely stunning Hamptons scenery plus it gets quite steamy in parts and I found the plot to be a lot more gripping this time around!

Remember originally watching this and whilst liking it overall i found it to be fairly average viewing but on this latest viewing that has now all changed and I find it to be a well acted and often tense little thriller! 8/10.

I need to see this. But is it just me, or did Rob have similar roles like this mid-career?

His 1990 film Bad Influence is quite similar but they´re both great films.
And yes, he´s usually rich, handsome and dangerous or silly (depending if it´s a comedy or thriller) [Smile]
