Somewhere in the middle of nowhere, USA: Sophie (Sammi Davis) has never really come over the violent death of her son, so much so that her husband Ephraim (Jon Lindstrom) and her sister Hallie (Jenny Dare Paulin), who lives with them, start to worry about her. When Sophie finally decides to have the dead boy's room redecorated, this is seen as a good sign though, evewn if she starts acting weird around the boys she has hired to paint the room, her former students Tom (Alex Weed) and Harry (Jake Bern) from the time she still was a teacher. When she learns about Ephraim's low sperm count, she even seduces both of the boys, just because she's desperate to have another baby. Eventually, she even tries to persuade them to kill Ephraim and make a getaway with her and Hallie ...

There is a problem though: Tom and Harry are not the innocent boys just out of highschool they seem to be, they have actually killed Sophie's son, and when Sophie suggests them to murder Ephraim, they take her more seriously than they should. Hallie finds out the truth about Tom and Harry, but is knocked out by the boys, who then pay a visit to Sophie to rape her while waiting for Ephraim's arrival.

In the end though, it's Hallie who saves the day, and she, Sophie and Ephraim kill the two boys, killers of Sophie's baby, in almost-self defense.


This film certainly has potential: It is directed with an eye on atmosphere, features enough twists and turns to keep one guessing, and the entire cast is pretty good as well ... it's only in the finale that the film falls flat on its face - while the plot that was so far kept interesting by complex storytelling the film now reveals itself to be nothing more than another pulpy psychokiller story that has little new to offer, quite the contrary, it'sw nothing short of predictable.

This actually could have been good, but after seeing all of it, it turns out to be nothing more than mediocre ...
