An emotionally resonant chiller. A riveting performance by Gene Jones.

A disabled war veteran is in bad hands when his family hires the live in nurse from hell in this intense psychological shocker. George (The Sacrament’s Gene Jones) is an aging ex-soldier haunted by memories of Vietnam and struggling to reconnect with his estranged son and granddaughter. But when he suffers a stroke and is diagnosed with dementia, George is left in the care of Michelle (Halloween’s Kristina Klebe), a seemingly sweet nurse with a disturbing dark side. At the mercy of a psychopath with a hypodermic needle, George becomes a prisoner in his own home, caught in a sadistic game of cat and mouse as brutal as anything he experienced in Vietnam. In his feature debut, director Mike Testin masterfully keeps the tension mounting—until it explodes in delirious violence.
