Our Score
Two couples go on holiday together to Florida and, to begin with, it's all sun, swimsuits and smiles. But murder is on the mind of one of the wives, played by Virginia Madsen. This is a brisk and moderately violent suspense thriller that has several unexpected twists in its plot. Madsen, the sister of Reservoir Dogs's Michael Madsen, is joined by Richard Thomas as her husband and by Ted McGinley and Laura Harrington as the couple who experience the ultimate holiday nightmare. This TV movie was originally known as Linda - the title of the 1973 original starring Stella Stevens but hardly the most suspenseful title - so you can understand why they would want to change it.


A man takes a holiday with his wife and two neighbours, little realising that with lust, adultery and murder on the itinerary, his other half intends to make it a vacation he will never forget. Taut and twisted thriller, starring Virginia Madsen, Richard Thomas, Ted McGinley and Laura Harrington.
