Donna May is a grief counselor who suddenly finds herself grieving and alone after the hit-and-run death of her husband, Robert. Soon after Robert's death, Donna's estranged adopted son, Kevin, appears at her house, claiming he has cleaned up his act and wants to regain her trust. Donna reluctantly takes Kevin in, although they haven't seen each other since a violent fight that she and Robert had with him five years earlier when he was caught stealing money from them. It doesn't take long for the aggressive side of Kevin's personality to emerge. He claims that Robert had been cheating on Donna, and prevents her from leaving the house or having visitors. Donna's credit cards and checks go missing and Kevin won't allow her to answer the phone. When Donna's lawyer is found dead after Kevin accused him of being a fraud, she becomes convinced that Kevin killed him and attempts to escape the house, in what may prove to be a struggle for her life.

Boring boring and predictable
3 December 2010 | by geoffox-766-418467See all my reviews

This is once more a film with leading men having it way over leading ladies in looks acting and all round pleasure to look at. Again, our so called leading lady pries and snoops and is in everybody's face and we're supposed to feel sorry for her. Parading around in her low cut blouses with cleavage showing and hair falling in her face we are supposed to I guess think she's attractive. Is that the symbol of looking good on LMN, low cut blouses and tight pants? No brains? All just show? Throwing her down the steps was best part of movie. And the ending was neat with stepson still on the loose, knowing he'll eventually do her in, we hope. Christina Cox as the so called victim was just awful to look at. But the two leading men, Chris Potter and Jon McLauren made up for that. Why is it that LMN always choose handsome men and dowdy women? In almost all of their films, the women suck the big one. They have this stupid long hair covering half their face, bosoms popping out of their shirts and being snoopy bitchy women. And we are to believe these helpless females suddenly near the end can knee the guy in the crotch and throw them over their shoulder? A bit far fetched in this viewer's eyes. Why can't the guy knee the female in the groin for a change? I give this 3 stars for Potter, McLauren and Janet Rice who, except for her last line to Cox about forgiveness, does a damn good job.
