Leah, a 37 year old successful lobbyist, is at an impasse in her relationship with David.  After dating for 2 years, Leah wants go get married and have children.  However, David, having seen so much divorce in his life, “doesn’t want to wake up one day hating Leah” and divorce her.  He is not ready for marriage or children but tries to assure Leah he will one day.  Leah doesn’t want to wait for him, so they break up.  Leah goes out to meet up with a friend, when Carter (whom she met earlier) saves her from the unwanted advances of another man.  The connection between Leah and Carter runs hot and fast. Its not long before Leah’s friends and family loves Carter and thinks he is perfect.  Then, in an instant, Carter changes.  He viciously attacks a guy who wants a picture of his car.  Leah quickly becomes uneasy around Carter and fears he may turn on her.  Carter tries to win her back but Leah rejects at every turn.  Carter, not willing to take Leah’s rejection, shows Leah how vicious he can truly be towards her.

This is a movie you know and have seen.  It can easily pass as a Lifetime movie.  However, this movie does have redeeming qualities.  Michael Ealy fans already know how well he can play creepy and scary.  He brings that talent to this movie and gives you chills.  Like most horror flicks, you will spend most of your time yelling at the characters.  Really?!?! Do go in there!!! Call the police!!! Detective Hansen is the voice of reason (the audience’s voice) throughout this movie.  His guidance is memorable and gives this movie a much needed jolt back to reality.  If you see this movie, make it a matinee … and ETX is NOT needed.  This movies is not horrible, but it and it’s ending is not original.

I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars

Life is like money.  You can spend it on anything you want, but you can only spend it once. – Bill
