Worth more then 5 stars!
28 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

Meredith Cole(Christine Lahti) is an agoraphobic and is constantly a prisoner in her home! Since her husband leaves, she leaves an ad in the paper for someone to rent her guest bedroom. But supposedly brother and sister Jane (Jennifer Rubin) and Peter (Dylan Mcdermett)come a long and are not what they seem. Jane claims she's a vet and her brother claims he's a cop. Things go to extremes when Meredith finds a ring in their bedroom from which they murdered a rich woman and stole it from her as it is worth thousands. When Jane kidnaps and threatens to kill Meridiths son she has no choice but to come over her fear!The only good thing about the mad couple terrorizing her is probably them getting her out the house to save her son!This film is very good and has a good plot it shows that a fear is something but what extremes you have to go through to get out of it. Jennifer is great as mad Jane, she is fab at playing Jane's childish and psychotic nature.
