EVER feel a bit paranoid? Like you're being watched? If you fall into this curtain-twitching category it's probably not advisable to see Jennifer Lynch's bloody and conspiracy-inducing flick Surveillance.

The daughter of Blue Velvet director has clearly followed in her father's steps, both career-wise and twisted mind-wise.

In this tense, sci-fi thriller starring Julia Ormond and Bill Pullman, things start off in the cradle of X-Files-styled movie weirdness, the countryside.

A series of gruesome murders on a deserted roadside have to be investigated and the only witnesses are a junkie, a zealot cop and an eight-year-old girl - whose family have been slain.

Imagine - a traumatised Annie, Amy Winehouse and Dirty Harry - all lined up, sweating away in anticipation of your interrogation. However, things soon get even more bizarre and fantastic. Each witness appears to be holding back information about the grisly killings.

As the Feds get questioning they discover each witness has a carefully rehearsed story, and that exposing the lies might get them more than they bargained for.

This hour-and-a-half film contains bloody violence and also stars Michael Ironside and French Stewart.

Surveillance is in cinemas from tomorrow.
