Storyline

On her wedding night, twenty-year-old Darcy Palmer empties her fiancé's bank account and flees to New York City. Along the way, she tries robbing Brianne Dwyer, who's heading to a New England college for her freshman year, and ends up killing her. Darcy assumes Brianne's identity, enrolls in her place at college, and kills anyone who gets in her way. When Darcy becomes interested in her roommate Jeanelle's wealthy widowed father, she poisons Jeanelle so that she's too sick to spend time with him when he visits the campus, and Darcy takes her place. Suspecting her dirty deeds, Jeanelle confronts her roommate, who coolly admits to killing many people and stealing their identities. Then, Darcy attacks... Just in the nick of time, Jeanelle's father rescues her from harm. Darcy escapes but is caught just as she's about to snare her next victim... Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

If you like Tracey Gold...
20 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

you may be able to watch the entire movie throughout, without questioning the storyline. I do like her in most performances, so stuck it out.

The one problem is Perry king, not sure what age he was at the time of this film (indeed, he seems ageless since 1985). At any rate, if the sociopath Gold character had pursued him, and he was, a bit younger and more handsome, it may have been believable.

Basically Gold portrays an artist, who gets what she wants at any cost. She changes identity with a college student, befriend her wealthy roommate (Shawnee Smith) and eventually sets her sights on her roommate's father (King).

The film has some nice winter sets in New England, but the storyline a bit hard to swallow. Tracey Gold gives a decent performance. 6/10.
