The story involves on Corin (Sean Michael Lambrecht), a 30-year old ad exec in a five-year bumpy relationship with 23-year old party boy Jake (Jeff Dylan Graham). Corin's boss and friend Nancy (Brinke Stevens) understands Corin all too well, appreciates his relationship, but in attempting to relieve his work duties hires an assistant Elliot (Jerod Howard), a gender confused nerdy lad who is engaged to his lifelong chum Marti (Tina Ona Paukstelis) in a push from his mother (Judith O'Dea) to make things 'right'. Elliot is befriended by Corin, brought into Corin's and Jake's friendship, and Elliot and Marti and Corin and Jake begin socializing. Elliot falls for Corin, comes out of the closet to the extreme dismay of Marti and his mother, and despite Elliot's friendship with Corin and Jake, he begins to stalk Corin. Corin's rebuff of his advances leads to disaster and the film tumbles downhill from there.
Yes, some may view this weak little foray as being full of statements about love, obsession, relationships, and friendships, but all of that has been said far better before and without the seemingly tacked on genre of a horror film. The acting from the women in the film is good, but the men are blunted stereotypes. Everything about the film screams low budget. One annoying factor - a music score that sounds like lessons on electronic keyboards and obscures a lot of the dialogue - turns out to be a blessing in that the weak script is covered frequently.Read more ›
Not having learned how to make friends, Elliot presses in, gathering souvenirs and taking secret photographs. Eventually Nancy, Jake, and Corin do something about it, but not in time to prevent Elliot from making his sudden move. The film moves to its violent climax, including Christian symbolism and decorated with the words of twisted journalism.
This inexpensive independent film does manage to do a good job telling the story of Elliot's reorientation and decline into obsession, showing a gay couple negotiating their relationship, and having the supporting cast framing the action well. There are scenes showing how straight bars, gay bars, and traditional religion reflect and shape values.
The acting was fairly good, with Brinke, Howard, and O'Dea doing the best.
The four knifing scenes all have makeup and effects that are reasonable. The film is not centered on showing violence per se.
Attractive Corin has substantial skin shots. Jake has a background one. There is a hunky farmer and a gay club dancer for extra eye-candy.Read more ›
This movie had a profound effect on me. I really found that I could relate to Elliot in alot of ways. I grew up without a father, in a conservative community surrounded by homophobia. I didn't have alot of friends in high school. I didn't know other gay people until I was in college. As most gay men can tell you, the coming out process can be very painful, and poor Elliot had about the worst coming out possible. Corin, the first gay man Elliot ever met, knew immediately that Elliot was gay. Knowing how difficult it can be, Corin wanted to help, and became friends with him. Little did he know that his compassion and kindness toward Elliot planted a seed for Elliot to become extremely obsessed with him. Of course Corin was already in a relationship with a guy named Jake, rocky of course, but committed to making it work. I can relate to Elliot in this way too. It is very painful to love someone who doesn't love you back. Even though you knew from the start that this person is not available, you can't help who you fall for. This was especially true for Elliot considering the circumstances that led to this point. As more time goes by, Elliot becomes more and more obsessed. His misery is compounded when his fiance and mother discover his secret. He is kicked out onto the street, alone, and miserable. When I came out to my mother, I didn't get the support that I had hoped for, but at least my mother didn't reject me. I can't even imagine how that felt for poor Elliot. My heart ached for this poor guy. The pain he felt from this multiple rejection quickly spiraled out of control resulting in a tragic ending. While I don't condone his actions at the end, I somehow understand why he went down that path.Read more ›

Another sad tale of a gay couple with a fresh out of the closet nut case.Published 2 months ago by Ed
Derivative and hackneyed. The film stock had better been burned than used to photograph this. The fault lies with the writer and the director. Read morePublished 11 months ago by MustLoveCorgis

This is a bad concept badly carried out. A real downer. With an ending littered with dead bodies, I strongly recommend avoiding it all togetherPublished on May 24, 2014 by Walter Lambert
Great movie buy it for you collection. Shows just how far a person will go for love and the desire to get what one wants no matter the cost.Published on April 14, 2014 by Jerry T. Blythe

I was expecting a supernatural horror flick and instead it was a gay version of Fatal Attraction. The production value is atrocious as is most of the acting. Read morePublished on May 31, 2009 by J. Chavez
This is an extremely amateurish movie, even for a low-budget indie, but it's not the very worst I've ever seen, so I gave it two stars instead of just one. Read morePublished on May 16, 2009 by J. Martin
