An aspiring actress (Alex) is housesitting in the hills, the owners are taking a break after their neighbour was murdered. For acting practise, Alex pretends to be the owner when someone calls at the house. The caller isn't who he says he is either... Written by
When Alex runs from the kitchen through the den to flee from Mickey, she goes from wearing black high heels (revealed earlier) to white tennis shoes, and then back to the heels when she knocks herself unconscious on the hard plastic of the den door. See more »
It is the flower that most resembles the open lips of the vagina. What do you think?

The first 30 minutes or so of this film makes you think it's a knock-off of "The Desperate Hours". But it's not. The film keeps coming at you with unexpected plot turns. Helen Slater is fabulous as the actress/housesitter. Michael Madsen is as good as he usually is, looking extremely menacing when he wants to. I thought this movie was delightful, surprisingly good for a film I'd never heard of.
