Storyline

Katherine "Kathy" is happily married to businessman Greg Norris and lives in his beautiful home with his about 18-year old daughter Tara. When suddenly a charming young man, who Tara first saw lurking around in the garden, turns up on their doorstep claiming he must be Jamie, the baby son she once gave up for adoption as a teenage mother on her parents' orders, the couple is delighted to meet him. They even take him in as they hear his adoptive parents have died in car accident and he's looking for a place to stay during his business studies just like Greg, to pay for which he held various jobs, even in Rio. The only one who remains suspicious is Tara, who doesn't want to be the kid sister and starts looking for holes is Jamie's story, going trough his things and having a friend examine his past- there are, since he didn't tell the Norris family about his lover who helps him unconditionally with his sinister hidden agenda...

Stranger At the Door- Bother to Knock On this Door ****
25 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who could believe that a movie with Perry King dying in the middle of it could still be this good? That's exactly right about "Stranger At the Door." It's an excellent mystery.

Andrew Kraulis makes believe he is Jamie. (By the way, Kraulis has an uncanny resemblance to Andrew McCarthy.) He learns about Jaime when both are imprisoned. It's also in prison that the phony Jamie takes up with fellow inmate Liz, who works in the pharmacy and looking like Faye Dunaway did in "Bonnie and Clyde." She is as vicious and as sinister as they come.

This duo plots to come into the home of Linda Purl and Perry King. King, a widower with a daughter, has remarried the lovely Purl. Purl gave up an illegitimate child at birth years before and he'll claim that he is the child. Trouble is that the real Jaime thought his mother and new husband were wealthy. They were struggling so our duo decides to knock off King to get his insurance money.

King's daughter is suspicious of "Jaime" from the beginning.

The story is a good one since while it deals with the usual themes of greed, murder and treachery, we have a cast that pulls out all the stops.

A just ending ensues which everyone will like.
