Griffith lubriciously menacing in above-average thriller
26 January 2003 | by robertjamesstoveSee all my reviews

Slightly predictable in parts, but still well above average, this film indicates how effective Andy Griffith's folksiness can be in lubricious/sinister mode. Even for the most blase viewer there are several frights in store. Incidentally, filmographers should note that this has been periodically screened on TV under the alternative name RELATIVE FEAR (not to be confused with the eponymous Canadian 1994 thriller).
