| Outstanding performances from the 4 lead actors, makes this an underrated thriller!
I don't give away the ending, no real spoilers here A young couple, Chloe & Michael Anderson (played by Ashley Bell and Adam Mayfield move into a suburban neighborhood. Michael works all the time, sometimes coming home after Chloe is asleep, and leaving before she wakes up. Still, their marriage is a happy one, and they are very much in love.

But Chloe is having trouble with the move. The new place, no friends, and being constantly alone, is putting a strain on her. She's having panic attacks, and they are getting worse. Nothing seems to help, and she is desperate.

They soon become friendly with the older couple who live next door, Gerald & Cheryl Dixon (played by Tom Amandes & Isabella Hofmann). Gerald is a retired psychiatrist, and when he notices Chloe in distress, he offers to treat her for free. Chloe refuses at first. After all, they don't really know the Dixons, but she is having serious panic attacks she can't control, and she does need help.

Chloe knows the source of the stress in her life. She & Michael had been trying to get pregnant for years, to no avail. This led to a nervous breakdown, and a stay in a mental hospital. She thought she was through it, but she now questions if the move was the right decision. Between the panic attacks, the insomnia, and the loneliness, she feels she needs to talk to someone, and since Gerald offered to treat her for free, she decides why not?

At first, the sessions go well; Gerald seems to be good at his job. But there is some odd behavior from both of the Dixons, which makes her wonder if the sessions are a good idea after all.

Soon after, she receives a stranger's obituary in her mailbox. Initially, she thinks it's a mistake, but then the phone calls begin. The man on the other end claims Gerald killed his wife, and warns her she is in danger too. She wants to blow this man off, but she's noticed strange behavior from the Dixons that has made her uneasy. Chloe decides to begin her own investigation into Gerald & Cheryl.

Needless to say, The Dixons are not who they appear to be on the surface. There are deaths & disappearances in their pasts that can't be explained. Who are they really? Is it just a series of mysterious coincidences? When Chloe tries to tell Michael what she's found, he doesn't believe her. He thinks she is imagining things. Her past problems cloud his judgment, and blind him to the truth Chloe has uncovered. Will his mistake cost Chloe her life?

This is an underrated little gem, mainly because of the 4 leads. They all are totally believable in their roles, and give outstanding performances.

If your like thrillers, give this a watch!
