Quite relevant Lifetime thriller
4 March 2019 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

Quite well done. This pretty current Lifetime thriller has lots going on. Cindy Busby plays a lawyer fallen on hard times and working in Costco like place. She rents out her basement. A seemingly nice man without his family as expected. Meanwhile she is sexually harassed by her boss. From the title you can expect he is the wacko in sheep's clothing.

Cindy Busby is quite suited to the role -looks smart. The look of this movie and the acting and cast are above average for Lifetime thrillers.
