Storyline

It's the beginning of the Labor Day weekend. Starfish automobile executive Daniel Corban, who is on his honeymoon with his wife of two weeks, Elizabeth Corban, at a lavish secluded lake-front house in the quaint summer resort community of Skuylkill, is frustrated. First, Elizabeth has not been seen in three days, and second, Skuylkill police inspector Murray Levine, who has a down home attitude matching the slow pace of the town, doesn't seem to be doing much about trying to find her despite Daniel's insistence that he do so. Levine does not see it as a police case since by Daniel's own admission she left on her own volition after the two of them had an argument. Levine has at least vowed that members of his detachment will look out for her and her missing vehicle. Daniel's frustration increases when a woman who claims to be Elizabeth, but is not, returns in what looks to be Elizabeth's car. He is unable to convince anyone, including Levine, that she isn't Elizabeth. And anyone in ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

At the end of the movie it is shown that Rebecca Foster, among the film's other characters, also has a role in the local production of "Dial M for Murder". There is only one female role in that play, and the fake Elizabeth Corban would be the age to play it, not Ms. Foster. See more »

A great thriller!
10 November 2013 | by smithannasmith333See all my reviews

They don't make movies like this anymore! And that is a shame! A good old, well written, well acted, well directed full-blooded murder mystery thriller! With no gore, no special effects, based purely on a good script, good acting and good directing. My favorite! I hate all these modern action thriller, spy thrillers, blood-everywhere thrillers. I love old-fashioned suspense thrillers and this is an excellent example of them. You will be on the edge of the seat until the end, worried to death about the main character, wanting to jump on the screen to help him and not knowing who is really who and what they are playing at. You will not guess it until the very end - I promise you wont. The thrill is 100% psychological. Get some popcorn or a bottle of wine, put your feet up and enjoy!
