Storyline

Beth Ferrier is happy in her life - fulfilled as a wife and mother, living in a beautiful home in a safe and tranquil neighborhood. Claudia Hartnell lives across the street and seems to be the perfect best friend - kind, compassionate, and a good listener. Nobody would ever guess that behind Claudia's charming facade lies an insatiable desire to live an idealized life. Nobody would suspect that her relentless childhood obsession is about to turn to murderous rage. Claudia wants everything that Beth holds dear and will use any means necessary to take it all away from her best friend. Written by Anonymous

1 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I actually liked this movie. It was on lifetime one night and I love lifetime movies (they are so addictive) so I started watching it and couldn't stop. It was a little far-fetched but enjoyable. I don't know, maybe there really are such crazy people out there like this! Considering it was one lifetime, it could be based on a true story, but I don't know if it is or not. I was curious what would happen next so it kept me interested. I would like to watch it again, without commercials. Claudette Mink is a great actress, she played the perfect charming, deceitful woman next door. She definitely knew what she wanted and has the perfect plan to get everything. This movie is worth watching. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys lifetime movies!
