Pretty good, creepy
23 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

Kate and husband Tim want to have children, but they have not been successful. Kate even quit her professional job and started pushing around a cart in a hospital, in hopes that less stress would help. Ann and Mike live next door and have children, but their marriage isn't a happy one. Mike is always working, and his work involves a lot of travel. And he spends too much money--money he really doesn't have to spend.

On Halloween night, Mike is working late, and Ann stays home to give candy to trick-or-treaters. Kate takes Ann's kids out trick-or-treating, and after she returns home, a group of older kids show up, one with a Frankenstein mask. Kate goes outside and notices Frankenstein visiting Ann's house alone. A few minutes later, Mike calls to say Ann won't answer the phone, so Kate goes over to check.

If only Mike hadn't worked late that night ... if only he weren't so obsessed with stuff.

Can Mike raise his kids alone? He may not have to. Kate takes the kids that night, and she helps out a lot when Mike is ready to work again and even travel. Kate's behavior is kind of creepy--she seems to think the kids are actually hers, and Tim isn't too happy over the situation.

The investigation is interesting, and we are presented with some interesting theories.

The ending is quite exciting. I won't say this is one of the better TV-movies prior to the ending, but the actor or actress who plays the murderer does an outstanding job in the final scenes.

It's actually worth seeing.
