Surprisingly good performance by Sheen! He can act when he wants and has a good script to motivate him. Mare Winningham is excellent as always and even the two kids in this film are very believable. Reminds me of Pacific Heights in the scary neighbor department! Very well worth watching.

Movie Reviews

Sheen plays an excellent psychotic character role here!!!
Thiago Macedo | 08/30/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I loved the tension that builds up during the movie. Sheen's character is funny, psychotic, and well rounded. The one liners in this movie are a piss. Especially between Sheen and the air conditioner repairman. Unfortunately I saw it on pay-per-view and never taped it. If you like Charlie Sheen as a actor, then you'll like seeing a different side of him in this film."
Disturbing film

"Firefighter Lyle Wilder (Charlie Sheen) is a hero to his Los Angeles community, but few know that he's harboring a deadly secret: He's slowly turning into a sociopath. His neighbor Catherine Braverton (Mare Winningham) and her two children have clued in to Lyle's altered personality and soon find themselves targeted as his first victims. The only trouble is, they can't seem to convince anyone that Lyle is dangerous."
