Fear of bad acting
15 May 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Okay, so this is a made for TV movie of 1992. It is based around the fear of being out of the house - called agoraphobia (sp). Christine Lahti is the lady in distress. Usually I like this lady's work, but this time around I was not only annoyed at her dramatics but tired after awhile of her screaming antics. Now you also have the good looks of Dylan McDermott as one of the home invaders. At first you really like him. And then when he begins to show his true colors, the plot thickens. McDermott gives a reasonably good performance. Unlike his supposedly wacky sister, overplayed by Jennifer Rubin. I couldn't wait for Rubin to get her uppance. She was that annoying. Both she and Lahti deserved each other. I was hoping that the two ladies would kill each other and Dylan goes free. He and the parrot that is. The house gets trashed along the way and our leading lady gets out of the house. Not surprising. This story was written by Alan Jay Gluickman and made into a screenplay by David Birke. Leon Ichaso directed this, but letting the two leading actresses go too far in my opinion.
