Trivia

Females in jeopardy: A few elderly women are poisoned and killed by the doctor. With about 17 minutes remaining, the doctor knocks out Kate by hitting her and then ties her up. Kate is rescued by Tom. With about 5 minutes left, Jess, Kate, and Tom are threatened by the doctor who has disguised himself as a deputy. Kate wounds him with gunfire from a revolver, but he shoots Tom through a door with a shotgun. Jess, Kate, and Sam are then threatened by him. They split up, and Jess is hit by the doctor and Sam kidnapped. Kate, who is still armed with a revolver, is then threatened by the doctor via shotgun. Kate fires three times, killing him.

Goofs

Jess, played by Carol Alt mentions borrowing Kate's (played by Amy Jo Johnson) clothing. Alt at 5'-11" is nearly a foot taller than the 5'-2" Johnson, so they could not easily share any clothing. See more »

Fatally flawed
23 January 2011 | by Jonas1969See all my reviews

This is an OK way to spend a little time, but the conclusion really didn't work.

The lead, Kate, is played by Amy Jo Johnson who is best known (to me at least) for her role as Julie on Felicity. Here she plays a young widower with a son that decides to "move back home" after her husband dies in front of a train.

What starts as a drama gradually becomes a murder mystery. The story is very formulaic and predictable but the actors mostly do a decent job. It never really becomes scary because the outcome is so easy to predict, but that would have been OK with me were it not for the conclusion shown after the story is done.

The director, Philippe Gagnon, has some potential but still has a long way to go. The flashbacks used don't add to the story and the romance is not done with any flair. Despite all it's flaws I still thought this was an OK way to spend a sleepless night - just don't go in expecting much.
