|Surprisingly good psycho stalker pic.
Deranged gardener Gordon (Hayward) really has a way with women.
The strapping lad enjoys tying his naked conquests up, generally abusing and sometimes molesting them.
So after he's turned on by lovely 24 year old model/actress Marie (Coullis), he rapes and brutally kills the poor girl at her secluded beachfront home.
Before long, Marie's sister Jenny (Howitt) arrives for a visit...will Gordon allow her to escape with her life?
This lean Aussie suspense vehicle is pretty successful, thanks to its simplistic 'trapped in the house' approach and a believable performance by lead Howitt.
Maniac Hayward too does a nice job of easing into Gordon's killer psychoses and by the end helps to ratchet up the tension significantly.
Worth seeking out.
