Family on vacation befriends stranger and later regrets it
18 March 1999 | by StormWSee all my reviews

Pretty good film for your typical family in trouble suspense / thriller. Family goes to the country to bond, meets a traveling guy ( Caulfield ) with lots of advice, befriend him and take him into confidence. Caulfield decides to use the family as his own personal psych experiment and dad ( Albert ) has to try and save his family from a lunatic. Worth a rental.
