Did You Know?

Female in jeopardy: At about 38 minutes in, Dana is drugged by Adam and passes out in the ladies room at a restaurant. Adam takes her home and no foul play is indicated. With about 45 minutes remaining, Dana awakens after being drugged by Adam and it is implied he had sex with her overnight while she was drugged. At about 20 minutes remaining, Adam drugs Dana and kidnaps her. He holds her captive in a cabin and tries to further poison her. After he leaves the cabin, she gets in a boat and rows into a lake for help but is captured by Adam. Ariel tracks them to the cabin and summons the police. At about 5 minutes left, Ariel is threatened and assaulted by Adam, who tries to choke her. Ariel knees him in the groin and follows up with a couple knees to the face. Adam is arrested by the police.See more »
Plot holes: Pharmacies do not give out prescription information over the phone, it is confidential under the HIPPA law. As such, Ariel would have never learned about the prescription Adam picked up.See more »

Good Grief, 14 June 2014
Author: wes-connors from Los Angeles

In a mournful opening scene, pretty blonde daughter Emily Osment (as Ariel Morgan) and likewise pretty blonde mom Victoria Pratt (as Dana) attend the funeral of their father and husband. Nearby, recent widower Paul Johansson (as Adam Smith) places flowers on his wife's grave. He has recently moved from Seattle into the neighborhood, with handsome stepson Gregg Sulkin (as Ben Woods). The younger man has bountiful lips and mismatched socks, which are noticed by Ms. Osment. They attend the same college. The sock notice given to Mr. Sulkin is one in a pattern of oddities which provide the most intrigue in this otherwise routine TV movie. You do get the feeling writer Shelley Gillen and director Vic Sarin are trying to make it interesting...

Another highlight is the color photography, also credited to Mr. Sarin. The attractive leading players are given good support, especially by veterinarian Richard Karn (as Cameron Morgan). The keenly observant neighbor kid, young Jaden Rain (as Brooks) seems to have some ties with the whole "A (family member)'s Nightmare" series, from Sarin and company. Alas, this story's weakness is difficult to overcome – the characters often lapse into amnesia. They don't seem to catch on to events, from scene to scene. Most irritating example of this is the Dixie Chicks "birthday concert" segment, which should have revealed something serious was amiss. Good thing mother and daughter don't investigate the mix-up, or we might have only half a movie.

***** A Daughter's Nightmare (5/3/14) Vic Sarin ~ Emily Osment, Victoria Pratt, Paul Johansson, Gregg Sulkin
