Very frightening! A Psychological Thriller!... No, A right laugh!

Being a fan of bizarre movies, I took immediate interest in this one!! The plot is quite simple. It's about a married couple, The Wheats (played by Hugo Weaving and Josephine Byrnes), who are trying to keep their little insurance fraud a secret from the police... but someone is on to them! Rolland Copping (portrayed brilliantly brilliantly by Phil Collins) comes to the Wheats posing as an insurance agent. Though the couple trust him at first, they find him quite eccentric... Which he IS! Copping loves to constantly play gags and practical jokes on people. Once the Wheats are sick of Copping constantly showing up and bothering them, he threatens to expose them for the frauds they are! That is unless he is "persuaded" not to. Bribe after bribe, Copping is relentless! All the while, he plays psychological gags and mind games on the Wheats (all with that "nice guy" facade). Can Copping be stopped? Will the Wheats be exposed? You'll never know unless you watch this movie! Be prepared for a weird ride!
