Plot Summary

A young hip New York couple, Jennifer and Paul Montgomery, love to play games. Jennifer is a wealthy heiress and inherited their New York brownstone from her mother. Paul for his part likes to spend her money and indulges his interests in modern art. They hold frequent parties and play their games. Into their lives appears Lisa Schindler, a door to door saleswoman. They decide to play one of their practical jokes on the grocery delivery man, Norman, where a supposedly jealous Paul accuses him of making advances to Jennifer, He shoots him twice - with blanks - and everyone has a laugh but the third shot kills him. In the days following his death Jennifer begins to hear noises in the house and seeing shadowy figures at the end of dark hallways. Is it all a game? Written by garykmcd
