Storyline

Richard Hunter, a promising young lawyer at a prestigious firm, has the perfect future mapped out. However, a costly mistake with a powerful client has put it all at risk. In a desperate attempt to save his job, Richard and his wife Tara spend the weekend at the cottage of senior partner Preston Westwood. The young couple is quickly seduced by their charismatic hosts' lavish lifestyle but it is clear that something ominous lies just below the surface. After a devastating act of violence reveals that they have become pawns in a blood feud between the Westwoods and a local family, Richard and Tara must decide what they are willing to sacrifice for success...their morals, their marriage, or their lives.

Richards body
21 February 2015 | by gerri1-2See all my reviews

SPOILER: Did Richard at any time feel that he was there for the wrong reasons? Why would Preston want him there? Killing someone and hiding the bodies is something else and planned. What would Preston achieve by killing Richard and his wife and exclaiming their deaths later. Where did Preston put Richards body? Why the police did not investigate further is a mystery. Six people dead and they go for a boat ride waving to their neighbour. Storyline just to simple for the real life. How many lines does one need to ask for answers on IMB? I asked enough questions and feel that is sufficient. Did Preston and his wife deliberately invite this couple over to set them up?
