Simon and Robyn are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon's high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn't recognize Gordo at first, but after a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts prove troubling, a horrifying secret from the past is uncovered after more than 20 years. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: how well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?Written by
There is a reference to the film Blue Velvet in which Dennis Hopper says "Heineken?F*** that s***! Pabst Blue Ribbon!". In this film Jason Bateman can be seen emptying two bottles of Heineken before opening a bottle of Pabst Blue Ribbon. See more »
Simon comforts Robyn with a hug, in the mirror we see her arm go up and when the camera cuts away, her arm is no longer up but comes up after a few seconds. See more »
Obviously some formulas (or sayings) are familiar to some, but there is always some twist you can give them to make them feel a bit fresh. In this case add some really good actors into the mix and let them do their thing. Even if you kind of know where this is going (unless this is the first thriller of its kind you're about to watch and/or haven't seen the trailer yet), this can still be engaging, entertaining and keep you on the edge of your seat.
Having said all that, because it's not the freshest of ideas and not the most original concept, this may disqualify it from the start for some. Don't force yourself to watch it, if you don't think you'll like it anyway. Otherwise give it a chance and stay for the ride til the end :o)
