A strange movie in a good way, but once you watch it once it'll never be nearly the same!
19 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's one of those movies that you watch once on network TV or Lifetime. That's because all it has going with it is the ending(everything meaningful "decompresses" once you know) and, once you KNOW, you won't feel the same way about it! If you're a first time viewer of this movie, then don't look at the spoilers. I'll rate as far as different viewers. First time viewing: It rates a 9. After that, a 5! Some movies you can watch over and over again and have an enjoyable experience, but not this one, though. To give you some idea, Enemy of the State, Along Came a Spider, and Bitter Blood(Lifetime movie: Dr Leary; Suzy Q; Fritz{Jim in this movie}; etc.) are some realistic thrillers that either you can watch over and over again or watch again periodically and still enjoy it almost as much as the first time. This movie is a one watch or rental at best.

Jim leaves his wife Kris to take a job that's too good to pass up. After going to a local bar there that his fellow coworkers frequent, he gets a secret admirer caller. He never seeks to do anything with her nor does he, despite her unbelievable yearnings for and wooing of him. Kris was either seriously in love with Jim and/or extremely doting! She shows up--as the secret admirer is weaving her "web" to try and win Jim's affections. The admirer leaves evidence everywhere for Kris to find and even poisons her. The editors of the supposedly true movie have creative ways of throwing you off and also throwing a little hint in of who she might be until the end happens. They reveal who the high ranking officer believes the person is at the end; even then, you'll have a TINY bit of doubt as to whose theory to believe--the high ranking officer's or Jim's. The end is explosive and unpredictable, but it only works once! The strange thing about all this is that it is really an occurrence that could happen to anyone. Great the first time!
