Trailer Analysis: If you have half an inkling to see this, you might want to skip the trailer which seems to give away everything but the end (which you can probably guess). Besides a huge plot dump, we get the familiar teasers of the genre: a car accident, knife, woman in bra and panties, gun, rain, a man standing around being shirtless and obsessive, and a printer going beserk.
Sample dialogue: “No judgments, no rules, just us.”
Based on these 2:31 minutes, should you go? If you dig these cheesy psychosexual thrillers, you can never see too many.
