Like WINDOWS (1980) and MERCY (2000), this opportunistic thriller uses lesbian titillation as a come-on. Los Angeles-based Sara (Farrah Forke) and her fiancee, Dylan (Matt Porretta), are surprised when Sara's long-time pal, Kate (Kari Wuhrer), stops by unannounced to nag Sara about her promise to open a florist shop in New Orleans. But conniving Kate's real agenda is far racier: to possess Sara heart and soul! Aided by her part-time lover, Zoey (Natalie Radford), Kate murders Dylan and makes his death look like the result of a robbery gone wrong. Kate plays the sympathetic friend, but arouses the suspicion of Dylan's brother, Ezra (Matt Borlenghi). When the bereaved Sara falls for a studly photographer named Jack (Joel Gretsch), Kate leads the FBI to his door with kiddie porn charges. But it's unclear whether Jack is Kate's victim or her accomplice. In any event, it's clear that Kate's addiction to Sara can only lead to misery for anyone unfortunate enough to be caught up in their steamy psychodrama. A mish-mash of psycho-stalker cliches and ludicrous performances — particularly Borlenghi's variation on Sean Penn's stoned surfer dude performance in FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH (1982) — this thriller is anything but thrilling.
