| A surprisingly good and tense thriller. If you can get past the bad acting its really a good movie you will enjoy. I say B-
"I really do love you house, it's amazing. I want it." When newlyweds Mitch (Welzbacher) and Jen buy their first house they have trouble paying the mortgage. After asking Mitch's best friend Danny to move in they think they will have the time of their lives. When Danny brings home new girl friend Blair (Leal), the lives of all take a drastic turn. This is a strange movie to review. The movie itself is actually pretty good and makes you feel tense almost all the way through. The Blair character is very creepy (think of Sharron Stone is basic instinct, but more psycho.) One huge problem with the movie is that the acting is so bad that it almost distracts from the movie. Some of the scenes are a little over the top, but they fit the movie. For a B rate horror movie with no known actors this is actually a pretty pleasant surprise, just don't expect to see them in a lot of stuff (I wouldn't be surprised to see the girl playing Blair to be on an MTV reality show though, she is a few steps above the "Jersey Shore" but definite "Real World" material.) Overall if you can get past the acting this is actually a very good thriller, one of the better ones in a while. I give it a B- (the - because of the acting).

Would I watch it again? - I don't think I will.

*Also try - Basic Instinct & The Roommate
