This is not the same movie as they are showing on the cover
23 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Summer of Fear aka Stranger in our House was a movie directed by Wes Craven made for TV based on a Lois Duncan novel. Lois Duncan also wrote I know what you did last summer.

This movie is similar I guess in plot but is basically about a guy and his family who go to his family lake house and get carjacked on the way. They are saved by a young guy named just "simon". They settle in to the house and happen to bump into Simon at the town center. From there he invades their life.

Typical TV movie for lifetime which I always enjoy. For a boring Sunday afternoon - I say go for it.
