Storyline

When a handsome, charming teenager named Noah (Ryan Guzman) moves in next door, newly separated high-school teacher Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) encourages his friendship and engages in a little bit of harmless (or so she thinks) flirtation. Although Noah spends much of the time hanging out with Claire's son, the teen's attraction to her is palpable. One night, Claire gives in to temptation and lets Noah seduce her, but when she tries to end the relationship, he turns violent.

surprisingly decent
13 February 2015 | by robert-botticelli31See all my reviews

I went into this thinking it was going to be another bad horror flick. but honestly it took me by surprise, Lopez is clearly not the best actress but she is edited and directed well and just rides off the other performances. Ian Nelson does well as the troubled teen in a non-annoying way (which I did not expect at all). but the biggest surprise comes from Ryan Guzman. known for his Step Up role proved he can legitimately act, his transformation was sudden enough to be thrilling yet slow enough that it can be understood. it jumps at points but isn't all that scary. I would consider more of a thriller than a horror film.
