In a quiet Ontario town, a small Bed and Breakfast dwells with a perverse secret. David Beck, a closet sociopath, but seemingly normal man, runs the B & B with his wife Samantha, a fiery woman with masochistic tendencies. Their only tenant is an aspiring writer named Charlie Matthews, a pathological liar who has a longing to be liked by everyone. The harmony of the house is disrupted when a young girl's body is found on the edge of town. Veteran police Detective Anthony Dolan suspects David of the murder, but lacking evidence to make an arrest all he can do is wait for the killer to make a mistake. Shattered lives and shattered dreams are all that remain when love and deception collide. Behind these walls lies a world of sex, lust and murder. The shocking climax of this twisted tale reveals the darker side of the human psyche. Written by Richard Sinclair

Hypnotic and Suspenseful - a gem
11 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

I love visiting LA where I have the opportunity to see some films I would never get a chance to see. I decided to take a chance and see this film. The script was very well written and the direction of this film was phenomenal - you really got the flavor of the area and the stellar cast made you believe they were comfortable and at home in this cold environment. The seemingly peaceful town and seemingly harmless characters both held dark secrets. Saw a review in the LA Times before seeing this that was not flattering. I usually don't listen to reviewers and I had a feeling about this film and I'm SO glad I took a chance. BRAVO to these filmmakers and I hope this film gets a wider audience - it deserves it.
