Richard and Priscilla Parker's lives take a turn for the better when Eddy and Kay move into the house next door. Eddy's a risk-taker and shows his new neighbours how to enjoy life at the expense of a rule or convention or two. What Richard doesn't realise is that Eddy's little games are just a prelude to something that's intended to destroy his neighbour's lives. Written by Rob Hartill

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The name of the working title for the earlier film A Change of Seasons (1980) was "Consenting Adults". In Bombay Talkie (1970), the name of the best-seller trash-romantic page-turner pulp-fiction novel that Jackie Collins / Jacqueline Susann - like English authoress Lucia Lane (Jennifer Kendal) had written was "Consenting Adults", a title itself which became the name of at least four later unrelated filmed productions (Consenting Adults (1982), this film, Consenting Adults (2000), and Consenting Adults (2007)).

Quotes Eddy Otis: [whispering in the dark] Did you know that I can see things, Priscilla. I can see things nobody can. I'm so good at predicting, that I can read tomorrow's headline. A man last night broke into the home of his ex-wife, and killed for the third and last time. Arriving tragically too late, Eddy Otis, the woman's... the dead woman's friend, shot and killed him. The man, Richard Parker, was already wanted in connection with several other murders. Oh yes, he's here. Priscilla, he's in the house right now, wondering when he should make his final move. Why? Because I wanted him to. He's my puppet. Here he comes. Come on, Richard. Come to papa.
