too much like a made for Lifetime movie for my tastes
26 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An agoraphobic woman, a victim of a violent rape, suspects that her new male roommate who loves to cook is up to something a tad more sinister (But not before getting romantically involved with him). This film is 1 part thriller to 2 parts romantic drama, not really that good of a ratio in my eyes, but the film is well-acted enough (even if it borders on the melodramatic at times) and there's some tension to be had. Perhaps not a great movie, maybe nor a good one, but it's perfectly suited for a rainy weeknight with nothing better to do. It plays too much like a made for Lifetime movie for my tastes though.

My Grade: C-
