Not a patch on Hitchcock
2 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is promoted as a Hitchcock-style thriller but it pales when compared with Hitchcock's classics such as Strangers on a Train and Dial "M" for Murder. With the main characters being fabulously rich and so being able to buy private jets and magnificent houses at the drop of a hat, the film has the air of a TV movie rather than a cinema offering.

Ted and Laura (Rod Taylor and Dina Merrill) are a retired couple who buy a lighthouse with underground living space when they see it featured on TV. Their son, Mark (Rick Johnson) is none to pleased about this as he sees his inheritance slipping away despite being wealthy himself. This is where the Hitchcockian aspect comes into play as Mark plans a two-pronged attack to get his hands on his mother's money, first by legal means and then by the sexy slinky femme fatale. The end of the film is a bit ambiguous and the supernatural dream clip at the end is pure corn.

Rod Taylor and Dina Merril are old hands at this sort of thing and Rick Johnson is suitably nasty as the darkly avaricious son. The best performance is by Rebecca Broussard who oozes sensuality as the sexy psycho nurse Monet. There are moments of tension but it is not a film that will have you on the edge if your seat, so only 4 stars.
