A robbery victim moves to a gated community for solace and peace of mind -- only to find her darkest fears realized -- in this made-for-Lifetime thriller. Baywatch's Alexandra Paul stars as Laura Benson, a woman recovering from a harrowing, still-unsolved assault attempt. Prone to traumatic flashbacks that frighten her husband and teenage daughter, she moves to an upper-class, 24-hour-security neighborhood. But behind the gates of their tony suburb, something ominous lurks: a chipper but demanding next-door neighbor (Shannon Lawson). Laura suspects nothing at first, but when her daughter starts being harassed at school and strange goings-on begin happening around her guarded house, she's not sure whether the loose criminals are still tormenting her or if it is someone even closer to home.

Like another reviewer I got this flick because I wanted to see what Jennifer Bransford was up to before General Hospital. The plot is actually interesting, guy is banging his neighbor's wife, neighbor confides that he's cheating too and might have HIV, guy flips out. The guy is question is awful. The character is badly written and the acting is poor. Actually the only thing that prevents this flick from being a complete waste of time are the actresses, Jennifer Bransford and Kellie Overbey. John Enos, also a soap actor, is just as bad as the other male lead. What could have been an interesting story of two decomposing relationships is lost in a series of nonsensical jump cuts, bad writing, and bizarre non sequitors. Obviously the filmmakers wanted this movie to be "different," but it turned out just bad. There's a twist ending that seems tacked on that it would have been better off without.
