Just a real bad clone of Misery, just the genders switched around. Now the psychopath movies are getting cliched. Baldwin is the dime-a-dozen psychopath, and he's locking his love in her room whilst murdering off her only points of contact. Now she's trying to get out, while he cuts away every attempt. Please, just watch Misery. Same thing, just a lot creepier and enjoyable than this.
