Hollywood star Markey Marlowe (Analeigh Tipton) is floundering. Her career is fading. She's threatened with real jail time. With an ankle monitor, she checks into an isolated rental place away from the paparazzi for the 30 days probation. The reclusive owner Daryl (Tyler Labine) lives next door in the converted house. This is mostly the lead actors and I like them both. I don't mind the expected B-movie plot. The lower rating confused me a little until I watched the movie. It takes an unconventional sharp turn about the midway point. It's an awkward questionable turn. The premise is she wants her fame back no matter the cost. That's not what happens. This turns into revenge but the reason is a little muddled. I also don't like leaving the ending ambiguous. It doesn't do what it sets out to do and it also doesn't finish what it starts to do. The movie takes a weird turn and then pulls off on the side of the road.
Abandoned by her friends and family and with her career in jeopardy, starlet Markey Marlowe is sequestered in a duplex with a reclusive landlord who just may be more dangerous than she is.
