Product Description

Product Description

Christine Lahti plays Meredith Cole, an agraphobic who lives with her teenage son in a large mansion. She advertises for a lodger and the woman who replies to the ad seems fine. Before long, however, her 'brother' moves in and it is not until Meredith sees them cavorting in the pool that she senses all is not as it seems.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favorites 3 Sep 2011
By Timothy McGivney - Published on Amazon.com
this really deserves to be released on DVD. all three leads are great---dylan and christine and jennifer (who deserved a much better career). it's a classic cat and mouse story but it's fun and exciting--pretty to watch too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A movie where your thoughts determine your direction in life 4 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a most see movie. It speaks to those of us in society who have dissasociated with the outside world. The lesson learned from this movie is that you turn your fears into a reality by concentrating on them.
2.0 out of 5 stars her greatest fear is 13 Aug 2001
By Peter Shelley - Published on Amazon.com
Who would have guessed from her 1991 Victim of Beauty that Jennifer Rubin could steal a movie? But steal this one she does, even outshining usually stronger performers like Christine Lahti and Dylan McDermott. It probably helps that Rubin's role as the new tenant of agoraphobe Lahti's house and girlfriend of McDermott is a psychopath, but Rubin is very funny and as physically free as she was stiff as the model in the Paul Lynch film. At times she reminded me of Sharon Stone, and I liked her screaming that she does what she likes in Lahti's face. The screenplay by David Birke doesn't give much explaination for Lahti's phobia. She tells McDermott that is a progression of her panic disorder but we're not told of the incident that pushed her to this extreme, and we know there had to be one because at one point Rubin reads from a psychology book, and of course makes fun of the pseudonyms used for patient testimony. Lahti remains housebound to make her an easy target for a pair of criminals seeking refuge, with a house that features Caligali-like narrow hallways with tiny doors. Director Leon Ichaso uses either a golden brown tint to show how homey the location is or a blue phospherous lighting state for nightmarish ultraviolet atmosphere, and eventually any kind of truth Lahti tries for is dwindled away by the endless reincarnations and the increased meaninglessness.
4.0 out of 5 stars "Come On, The Dead Man Can Wait!"... 15 May 2013
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Artist, Meredith Cole (Christine Lahti) has a lot of problems. She suffers from acute agoraphobia, her husband has left her, and he is threatening to take their young son. A virtual prisoner in her large, rural home, Meredith struggles to overcome her debilitating fear of the outside world. She takes in a female boarder, named Jane, who seems perfect. Things take a turn for the worse, when Jane's "brother", Pete (Dylan McDermott) arrives for a visit. This is not good, as we have already witnessed Pete murder a cop in cold blood! I'm not a big Dylan McDermott fan, but he plays a serviceable enough psychopath here. We also learn that Jane has some mental issues of her own. Meredith soon finds herself in a life and death situation. THE FEAR INSIDE (1992) is the basic source material for the superior, more recent film, RESTRAINT w/ Stephen Moyer. Still, it stands on its own merit, as a suspenseful thriller...
5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Flick 21 Sep 2012
By Lauren - Published on Amazon.com
I've been watching this on a third-party movie website and it's really good, although suspense/thriller movies usually aren't my cup of tea. i got the "vapors" watching the very hot sex scenes in the flick,what am i saying? i always get the vapors when i look at senor mcdermott. in the movies of his that i've been watching when he makes out with his female co-stars, us ladies always wish we were that actress that he's making bacon with.
