Storyline

Before meeting George Good (Brad Dourif), Sonny Jordan (Mekhi Pfeiffer) was just a lost drifter with a troubled past floating from town to town, looking for work. As fate would have it, Sonny ends up saving George's life from a murderous back-alley mugger. As thanks, George gives Sonny a home and a job as a mechanic on his farm in the lonely Louisiana Bayou. Sonny quickly settles in and makes himself useful around the place but then Sonny meets Larissa, (Elika Portnoy) George's alluring wife. She has a mysterious past and the two are irresistibly drawn to each other. The two begin a passionate affair leading them to construct a twisted plot to take George's life in cold blood in order to be together. As their despicable plan unravels, they learn how far they are willing to go to cover their misdeed. Written by Samuel Goldwyn Films

I thought it was pretty good
10 August 2020 | by mistela67See all my reviews

Not understanding the poor reviews. I thought it was pretty good. The acting was good, in my opinion. I thought the Russian woman was attractive, and both the males played their roles decently. The movie kept me going, and the ending threw me off. I also thought the police officers played their roles very realistically.

My only complaint was that the motivations of the characters (both the boyfriend and, at the end, the woman) to do what they did wasn't really established enough. But still, the plot was good enough to keep you interested.

All in all, it was an enjoyable movie, if you keep your expectations in check. Not nearly as bad as some of the reviewers state here.
