Alone in their isolated home where no cars pass and no one lives nearby, Vincent and Tally suffer together in a loveless marriage. But what they don't know is that they are not as alone as they think -- a criminal and his psychotic brother are watching them through binoculars. They stare lustfully at Tally through the windows and plan something horrible for the unhappy couple when night falls... Written by
After watching Jim Haggerty's new film, the answer may be no one. Haggerty's newest film (actually filmed a few years ago, but held up in post-production), is a departure from his normal horror/comedy efforts, and goes the darker route of a more serious, film noir about some very unlikeable people, and the things they are willing to do for money. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to give a plot synopsis without spoilers, so i'm not going to try. Haggerty throws one plot twist after another at you, and after a while, it seems like nothing is what it seems. The story is well-written, and the characters are fleshed out with enough dialog to really make them believable. The acting is the most consistent in any of Haggerty's films, with special mention going to the beautiful Amanda Ladd, who turns in a performance worthy of an award. The film is edited well- it never feels like it's dragging or losing momentum, something which has sometimes been a problem in Haggerty's other films. The film was made on a shoestring budget, so don't expect million dollar production values. However it is an absorbing story/character study, and deserves to be seen. Here's hoping that Haggerty decides to make some more films of this nature in the future.
