Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

A whirlwind romance leads to disturbing discoveries in this contrived but watchable thriller. Sarah Lancaster stars as the lowly personal assistant whose ultra-swift marriage to software billionaire Mark Humphrey quickly tarnishes when she starts snooping into the fate of his late former wife. Though all her poking around is rather far-fetched and visually undynamic, a sinister soundtrack and enjoyably deceptive supporting performances create an atmosphere of intrigue and unease. Humphrey is particularly good as Lancaster's success-obsessed hubby, mixing charm with a dash of creepiness that keeps his part in the deadly events uncertain throughout. Consequently, there are a few surprises in the twisting finale, even if their execution is underwhelming.
