As time goes on, Daisy realizes heu0026#39;s not a cop. Who is he? And did someone send him? This is a good, atmospheric TV movie. Itu0026#39;s somewhat derivative and somehow it never really scared me, but the performances are good and there are suspenseful moments. I had one problem. I wonu0026#39;t give anything away but at a certain point, one of the characters suffers a horrific injury to his hand. A towel is wrapped around it and the individual goes on as if nothing has happened. To which I say, give me a break. The pain had to be unendurable.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYouu0026#39;re not really sure whatu0026#39;s going to happen in the end, so youu0026#39;ll have to make your own decision.”
