Though two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank heads the cast, this melodrama is getting a direct-to-video release.
The actress plays a doctor who moves to a Brooklyn apartment, where the landlord (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, with whom Swank first worked in "P.S. I Love You") takes a very special interest in her. She soon finds her concerns about him have a strong basis in reality. Veteran actor Christopher Lee also appears in this production by Hammer Films, for which he worked years earlier as a horror film star. ** (R: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
