Cam (Samy Osman) and Dan (Serge Plourde) share their house with Scott (Sean Kaufmann), who's pretty much the constant sidekick, a guy especially Cam likes to take with him when he goes out to pick up women, as Scott's the likeable loser next to whom he always looks great ... and then, after a party, Scott surprises everyone when he's the only one to have pulled - lovely Tracy (Tianna Nori), who quickly becomes his girlfriend and moves in with him, too ... much to the dismay of Cam, who doesn't believe in relationships. So he tries to get Tracy out of the house as quickly as possible, and he thinks he's actually doing this for Scott. Thing is, Scott couldn't be happier than he is with Tracy - but more importantly, Tracy knows she's in for a good thing, so she doesn't even dream about leaving. Instead she starts to mildly terrorize Cam - which also includes puncturing all of his condoms.

Eventually, Scott and Tracy suggest to Cam and Dan to buy them out of their shares of the house so they can keep it as their family home, but while Cam refuses rather naturally, Tracy has higher hoped for Dan ... and when he turns down her offer as well, she kills him and hides his body in the basement, telling everyone he has left for Thailand, which was his intention in the first place. With Dan gone and Scott too much in love to notice what's actually going on, Tracy and Cam fight a pretty open war, which Tracy seems to be winning effortlessly - until Cam realizes thge one way to hurt Tracy is via Scott, for whom he finds a great job offer in another city, and despite Tracy's reservations, Scott wants to accept.

Then Cam finds Dan's corpse in the basement, but fails to notice Tracy's standing right behind him, at the ideal distance to hit him over the head with a hammer, and ... well, you might want to watch the movie to find out.


Clean Break is an extremely nice low budget thriller: It's got a great narrative buildup, features irony and sarcasm in all the right places, doesn't overdo in the gore department without holding back, is directed with exactly the restraint to make a story like this work, but also with a great eye for detail ... and Tianna Nori as the wannabe perfect homemaker is just great, as she effortlessly finds the right balance between sweetness, parody and utter creepiness.

Strongly recommended.
