Trivia

The casting department originally had Stephen Moyer set to star as Mary's abusive husband Steven. Stephen Moyer reportedly requested of director Matthew Parkhill to be put into the role of John instead as he was afraid that his success playing a menacing character in True Blood would hurt his performance for this film if he took on such an obvious role. Matthew Parkhill reported to have had similar doubts and found Moyer to be a much better match to play John. See more »

A very surprisingly good suspense movie that deserves to be watched. Very neat idea that is both exciting and tense. I say A-
20 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

"People come together for a reason Mary, doesn't matter how." After starting divorce proceedings against her husband Mary (Leferve) starts a new life in a new apartment. After a series of phone calls from a woman they begin to talk about their situations. When the woman acts on an off-handed remark by Mary she begins to rethink the friendship. When people she knows start to disappear she doesn't know how to make it stop. 90% of the way you feel about a movie, I think, has to do with your expectations going in. Movies like "Bridesmaids" with all the hype can really let you down after it's talked up as much as it was. This one is the total opposite. Never hearing of this the trailer seemed interesting so I watched it. I was blown away. A very neat (although not original) idea. Think a suspense version of the "Lake House". I don't want to give anymore away so I will end this, but this is a surprisingly good must see. I really liked this movie. Overall, a very tense and exciting suspense that deserves more of an audience that I'm sure it will get. Watch this! I give it an A-.

Would I watch again? - I think I might *Also try - Forget Me Not & Lake House
