Robert and Hallie hire a sexy couple to house-sit for them while they vacation in the country. But when the house sitters refuse to leave, things get kinky, and what initially feels like a black comedy morphs into a gruesome account of Robert’s perverse, mind-swaying nervous breakdown. A master of emotional manipulation, director Jon Reiss draws us into a mysteriously erotic and sadistic inferno of unbridled emotion.
When I first watched this I tweeted that it was like "Hal Hartley on bath salts" and I still think that's the most accurate description. Of course Hartley fans might find it way too heavy on the bath salts, and chronic bath salts users (yeah, right) might find it a touch too thoughtful. But it's out there (both in the sense of bizarre and "waiting"), an interesting little movie that no one seems to have seen.
