Storyline

Young marrieds Lori and Tom relocate from Chicago to the country where they end up living next to Carl, a right-wing radical who beats his wife, Helen. When Tom goes away for a few days, Lori, with the help of best friend, Monica, investigates the disappearance of Helen. Of course, this isn't the best idea, since it involves sneaking into gun-nut Carl's house in the middle of the night. Written by Schleppy

Another Canadian quickie
17 January 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Uh-oh. The bland leads are Canadian. The movie staff is mostly if not all Canadian. The setting, which consists mostly of two side-by-side generic-looking houses and their yards, is right out of THE X FILES in the years it was shot in Canada. You know what his means, right? A snoozer, with little or no mystery and little or no suspense, Normally solid actors like James Russo and Theresa Russell as an unhappily married couple are absolutely wasted in this made-for-video shlock. This was, unbelievably, R-rated, even though 99 percent of the violence takes place off-screen and there is not a jot of nudity. The innocent young wife, newly moved in next door to a suspected murderer, is reasonably hot, in a Reese Witherspoon-ish sort of way. So do we get to see her nekked or at least writhing in the throes of orgasm? Not on your life! This is a LIFETIME- or USA NETWORK-level flick. Nothing much happens in the first 90 minutes and the last three rush to a predictable conclusion. Director Joey Travolta turns in a real third-rate job. And if I didn't know the release date of this turkey, I would have sworn it was shot many years ago and sat collecting dust on a shelf for a very long time.
