Poor Tori Spelling has heartache upon heartache piled on her in this twisted tale of extreme obsession. Giving one of her better performances, she plays the desperate-for-a-baby, local doctor's wife whose life is dramatically torn apart when her husband's deranged ex Callie (Victoria Pratt) decides she wants him back. The signposted events that follow are far-fetched and riddled with holes, as Callie switches her inexplicably unhinged behaviour on and off too easily, and gets away with increasingly nasty and unrealistic actions. Meanwhile, everyone else in the film displays such infuriating stupidity that it kills any sense of tension. As a result, even the climactic showdown feels sadly underwhelming, despite its disturbing concept.

Plot Summary

Thriller starring Tori Spelling. Life looks just about perfect for Nina Hamilton when she moves back to her husband's home town so that he can take over his father's medical practice and she can have another baby. But when they encounter his childhood sweetheart, things take a sinister turn.
