Believe me this film doesn't have throngs of admirers. But I have an affinity for it. It's slick and interesting. The characters aren't what they seem. I thought James Marsders was quite good as the young man with the charm and looks..but something sinister lurks behind those eyes. The cast is pretty top notch for this genre and the film was much slicker than most give it credit for. It doesn't have a loyal following and certainly it's far from a masterpiece. But as entertainment,the film didn't let me down. The ending,while wasn't altogether satisfying,was at least fresh and different from the typical movie of it's genre. The movie has mystery and manipulation,it doesn't let you truly know all there is to know about many of the characters. There are many well known faces,especially from teen television,but this is an adult film..with adult themes like rape,deception,manipulation,trust,and possibly "murder." It surprised me..because after it was over I was entertained. Sometimes that's all it takes for me to be satisfied. ***1/2/*****
