Did You Know?


At multiple points, the CSI team interviews Heather and Zach alone. As minors, they would not do this without a parent or advocate present. Any evidence or confession obtained from these interviews would be inadmissible in court. See more »


Just after the teaser, Frank Tripp follows a blood trail around to the back of the house. There is a camera cut that reveals a body, laying in plain sight, with it's feet on some steps leading down to a pool area. Before the camera cut however, the steps are visible, but there is no body.

Florida's 'Peyton Place'
12 December 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

The opening segment here is a take on the thriller movie, "When A Stranger Calls," where a baby-sitter gets terrorized by someone who is phoning from inside the house. Well, the teen is victim of a prank by the stupid kid she's babysitting.....but it's no joke when she answers the door and her father falls inside, bloody and dead!

This episode winds up to be a real soaper, a "Peyton Place" where everyone is sleeping with everyone.....a very friendly neighborhood, you could say. It's gets a little too much, to be honest. It turns out real sleazy.

The ending also is a bit sappy, with the typical corny song and melodramatics that they love to do on this show. Does anyone else laugh sarcastically at these ending songs, which appear designed to make, maybe, a 13-year-old girl, get emotional but are really stupid for adults?
