Matt Draper is a man who lives two lives. In one, he's a prescription salesman living in a rural country house married to an emotionally withdrawn young woman, named Ruth whom he keeps locked up within the house, as more or less a prisoner. But as Dr. Matt Swan, he regularly commutes to nearby Los Angeles where he's a wealthy pharmacist married to a wealthy socialite named Ariana Harpwood and has two children with her. Neither wife is aware of Matt's double life or his unwillingness to let either one go. When Ruth becomes more unstable when she suspects Matt is cheating on her, she starts a romance with Tom Bernard a married neighbor who moves into the country house just next door. When Matt realizes that Ruth is socializing with people, (against a stern rule he gives her) he plots to get rid of her, unaware that Ruth is plotting to do just likewise, but she's unaware of her new friend Tom's dark secrets.

Ok... It's 4am and I'm up. So what's on TV? 150 channels on the air (flip-flip-flip) Well What's this? I know her and look he's in this too. Oh what's their names? I'll have to remember to look. But I never knew they did anything together. Hmmmm... I'll watch this for a few. Well, now she's a nut. Oh but wait he's what? Why is she like this? Oh I see. Maybe? No-yes-well-maybe... She's a nut with help. Oh and her neighbor is too. COOL!!! ^ That is how I came across this movie. ^ But this is A GREAT MOVIE if you like erotic psychological thrillers with a twist. It has everything: love, sex, adultery, a heathy dose of fear, hatred, a mentally unsound woman with a reason that been pushed too far and murder plot(s). It's got it all. Everything for a good late night movie. It's not big budget but it is big names. (Rebecca DeMornay and Michael Rooker) With a small tight cast of characters who's lives and mental states interlock smoothly with each other. Everything as to why is explained with the unfolding of the movie. There are several psychological twists. The suspense makes you hold your breath, look around every corner and behind every door. The only thing left untold is what happens to the people left after all is said and done. But great and well worth the price to rent the movie or the time to set the VCR to record it. A MUST SEE for psychological thriller lovers!
