The ties that come untied
1 May 2006 | by krorieSee all my reviews

Not bad for a TV thriller involving a fairly predictable story yet executed with skill by TV director Terry Ingram and a competent cast headed by Nicole de Boer and Brian Krause. Some parts of the story are incredulous but if the viewer keeps an open mind, most of the plot works.

To get some extra spending money, a professional couple lease out the guest house on their newly purchased property. Leasing the guest house includes the sharing of the swimming pool and hot tub. The wife is more sold on the accepted applicant than the husband. One reason the husband has concerns results from the lessee being an ER nurse at the same hospital where the husband is a surgeon. Added to the reservations is the obvious beauty and seductiveness of the lessee. Problems with the new tenant escalate to the point of eviction. The new tenant, however, is determined to make her stay more permanent even if it means violence. A more thorough check on the tenant's background leads to more suspicion which culminates in a showdown.

Though the viewer has seen it all before, the script by newcomer Andy Callahan is well written and the direction is fast-paced, making for an entertaining made-for-TV film. But I am still unsure about the title and how it relates directly to the story.
