Storyline

Injured after committing a bank robbery, John Taylor is desperate to find a place to hide out and approaches the home of Warick Wilson. John manages to get himself invited into the house by posing as a friend of a friend and spinning a sob story of lost luggage and a violent mugging. Inside, Warick, a consummate host, is making the final preparations for an impeccable dinner party. He insists John stay for the party, but as the evening begins it becomes obvious Warick may not be what he first appears. Written by L. Hamre

Goofs

The postcard discussed was advised to be sent from the female friend whilst holidaying in Sydney, of post code 2000. However, upon further review of the postcard at the dinner table, it has a circular Post Shop lodgment stamp printed as 'The Glen 3150', which represents a specific Australia Post outlet situated in the suburb Glen Waverley, east of Melbourne. Sydney and Melbourne are about 1 hour 20 minutes flight from each other. See more »

more twists than a tornado
24 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

great film, David Hyde Pierce is brilliant & quite scary. highly recommended. The characters are simple but effective. The plot is easy to follow & keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you like David Hyde Pierce in Frasier then this character is much darker but just as funny. I would love to see Hyde Pierce play more nutter's in other films because he played the character so well.

Clayne Crawford supports well & his character is likable as a petty criminal.

Easy to watch, very clever

RED or WHITE wine????
