If love lasts forever, does that mean that the bonds of never-ending affection extend out beyond the grave? Those who scoff at eternal romance are best advised not to voice their doubts while in the presence of the sex-life psychic who spices up a Halloween party attended by a trio of loving couples to kick off The Simian Line (2000). When the fortuneteller’s extrasensory perceptions are disparaged by the masquerading revelers, she issues a prediction that turns into a curse. One of these couples, according to the tea reader, is destined to break up in a bad way. Chances are that the twosome heading for the skids in Simian’s bittersweet depiction of modern mating rituals will not be the pair of cutely matched ghosts who happen to be haunting the party mansion.
