Pleasantly Surprised
5 January 2006 | by (Long Island, NY) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching this on TNT. They ran all four hours from midnight to 4:00 am. I'm tired, but very pleasantly surprised by this movie.

The storyline was suspenseful and kept me guessing for the first three hours. I'm usually very good at figuring things out so it took me a while. The plot in the second half of the movie didn't feel quite as credible as the first half, but perhaps watching it in it's entirety is to blame for that. It might have played better had I seen it over two nights as it originally aired.

Valerie Bertinelli did a more than adequate job and Harry Hamlin handed in a much better performance than I've ever seen him give before. When his character was telling the story of his family tragedy to Bertinelli's character, I was completely engrossed and found him to be totally believable. I was impressed with his range. Pruitt Taylor Vince did an wonderful job. He portrayed just the right amount of creepiness.

I never read the book so I have nothing to compare it to. (I definitely want to read it now, though!) The end of the movie left me feeling somewhat dissatisfied. I don't enjoy stories that leave you with unanswered questions unless there is going to be a sequel. There obviously wasn't a second movie. Since I'm not familiar with Hoag's work, I wonder if there is a second book that addresses this issue. Does anyone know?
