A woman having difficulty in conceiving chooses to sleep with a stranger to get pregnant and comes to seriously regret her decision.
However, Evan ups his stalkery activities in an attempt to claim his child. The psycho’s outbursts are shocking, including a nasty case of man-on-’roo violence, and the home stretch finds Jessie trying to cope with Evan’s maniacal moodswings on a dangerous coast road. The set-up is deceptively low-key, but the second and third acts deliver textbook suspense and horror.
It starts out as more of a drama but then the suspence really kicks in.
