This is pretty much a standard
woman-in-danger Lifetime movie, but it's elevated by the
taut suspense and the great performances by the actors,
particularly the two leads, Meredith Monroe (Rachel) and
Jason Gray-Stanford (Craig).
Rachel is an event planner looking for love.
She meets Craig online (was it on Craigslist? LOL!) and he
stalks her in a creepy way before sweeping her off her feet
very romantically and then terrorizing her. It's pretty
extreme as we watch them "fall in love" and then he goes off
the deep end.
Unfortunately, there's not a lot of mystery
because we see from the beginning that he's a creepy
stalker. The suspense comes from watching Rachel and the
others figure it out, until it's almost too late.
If you've only seen Jason Gray-Stanford as
the irritating sidekick on "Monk", then you will be
surprised that he can play both a creepy villain and a
romantic rich guy, but he does both well. Meredith
Monroe always does a good job, and she's fine here as the
heroine. She proved in "Dawson's Creek", "Criminal
Minds" and many other shows that she's a versatile actress.
I hope she gets more great roles after this one.
Women will probably love this movie. I'm not
sure how the men would like it, since most of the guys in
the show are evil, stupid, and/or manipulative. Most of the
women are good. I liked the dog and I hate it when
movies like this show a cute dog because you know what might
happen...but I won't spoil it for you.
It's a fun Saturday movie, so site back,
order a pizza, and check it out!
interview with star Meredith Monroe!
When hotel event planner Rachel breaks
up with her boyfriend John for cheating
on her, she decides to go looking online
for a new boyfriend. In the expanse of
cyberspace, she meets a charming,
wealthy man named Craig, who at first
seems perfect. He’s attractive, fun,
romantic, and he’s been successfully
running his mother’s global real estate
company while his mother, Doris travels
the world. But Craig is far from
perfect. He's obsessive and controlling,
and once he sets his sights on Rachel,
he has no plans of ever letting go.
