An emotionally-distraught and suicidal woman dials a random telephone number and gets a lonely man on the phone. With pistol in hand, she threatens to kill herself over the phone unless he can talk her out of it within one minute.
A young woman, Marnie Watson, is granted early release from her prison sentence for manslaughter (killing her husband - a violent NYC cop - in self defense) on condition she wear an electronic ankle bracelet and remain within her home, effectively under house arrest, for the remainder of her sentence. Her late husband's partner keeps tabs on her from a patrol car parked across the street, hoping she'll violate probation and he can send her back to prison. But the 100-foot radius her ankle bracelet allows isn't the worst of her problems. Her dead husband --now a malevolent ghost--is still in the house, where he died -- intent on savage revenge.

I borrowed this film from a friend (fellow horror fan) who raved about it. Even though I'd never even heard of it I thought I'd give it a go. I'm so very glad I did.
After serving a partial sentence for murdering her violent and abusive policeman husband, Marnie is released to her home. She must however wear a tag, preventing her from moving more than 100 feet from a security monitor in her home. Marnie settles in well, despite visits from her husband's partner who is still bitter at her part in his death, a bloodstain that just won't wash away and a neighbourhood that shuns her.
To add to Marnie's problems the power company is unable to connect her electricity supply for 48 hours, leaving her alone in the dark. As if that isn't bad enough Marnie's husband is back from the dead, and he's not happy at all!
I physically jumped at a couple of scenes in this film. The first major scare made me literally shout out with fright! The story, whilst not exactly original, does manage to hold your attention and a couple of excellent twists just add to the tension. All in all a cracking horror film that doesn't need big names, huge budgets or too many over the top CGI effects to scare the viewer.
I'm a huge fan of horror films and I would most definitely put this film in my all time top 50. Just watch it and I bet you'll agree.
