Picking up lesbian soldier Connie and murdering her is the first step in the payback plan of Kay. Posing as the dead Connie, she next ingratiates herself into the Reeves family, which is mourning the loss in the Gulf War of Corporal Martin. Palming herself off as Martin's secret fiancee, she easily hoodwinks Martin's dad, Arthur; his mom, Evelyn; his jealous younger brother, Tom; and precocious younger sister, Gail. However, she gains the enmity of family friend, Julie, whose estrangement from Tom is exacerbated by the flirtatious Kay. Bonding with Evelyn after rescuing Gail from a swimming mishap, she restores the family's will to thrive, them closes in for the kill.
This flick is still unreleased on DVD or Blu Ray and that's weird because it got some names in it that aren't unknown for fans of horror or science-fiction. Margot Kidder (Evelyn) we know from Black Christmas (1974) and Superman (1978). Kate Vernon we all knew from Battlestar Galactica the remake as Ellen Tigh or earlier from Pretty In Pink (1986). In fact I can go on and on, some went to Transformers or Land Of The Dead, all genre flicks.
Even the director, Jorge Montesi, went further into series mostly concerning science-fiction. This flick here had nothing to do with horror or science-fiction, in fact, it's low on everything but the story is well written en due the directing you keep watching until the end to know what is going on.
When a soldier dies, suddenly in front of the grieving family appears a girl who says she 's the lover of the unfortunate soldier. The take her into their house and slowly her mystery is solved. Towards the end it got out of hand but being a television flick it's low on the red stuff, surprisingly it do had some nudity and not the least, Kate Vernon goes all the way and even shows her pubic hair. I guess that they tried to use the success of erotic thrillers like Basic Instinct (1992).
I liked it and maybe for some it's a hunt down to go back on memory lane with all those names from yesterdays. Only available on NTSC ex rental VHS.
