An effective TV thriller
17 June 2009 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

By Appointment Only is a made for TV thriller that centers around the life of Val Spencer (Ally Walker) who becomes a Realtor after her husband commits suicide. She and her teenage son move to a new home in hope of putting their past behind them.

On her first listing, Val must her help former neighbor, Jim sell his million dollar home after the death of his wife. However, when she returns to the home the next day to meet with a client, Jim is gone and a man claiming to be his nephew is watching over the house.

However, due to her growing suspicions, Val has reason to believe that the man claiming to be his nephew may not be who he says he is and sets out to reach the truth as to the whereabouts of Jim.

The film does last for around 80/90 minutes and does feel dragged out in places but it works to good effect at building up a feel of uncertainty. Overall, the acting is solid and the film does have some genuinely thrilling moments 9/10
