Alone Shouldn't Be Kept that Way ***1/2
28 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Really good thriller with William R. Moses really breaking out of his Perry Mason part of Ken Malansky.

In this very exciting film, Malansky plays 2 brothers. The evil one is quite a character who suddenly springs into the life of the good one, who is no saint himself. However, the evil brother has a diabolic scheme to inherit the good brother's business by selling it and then wiping out the other brother as well as the family. Anyone getting in the way of his plot is quickly murdered including the therapist for the good brother's wife.

The ending puts you on an absolute edge where the wife of the good brother has to determine who the bad brother is when both claim to be her husband. How she figures it out is truly amazing.

As is the case with everyone else, Bill R. Moses has aged but he still has those good looks which serve him well.
