A lounge singer (Kate Vernon) who also happens to be a psychopath murders a woman and then assumes her identity. It's all part of her dastardly plan to exact revenge on a wealthy Southern family. She makes herself indispensable to the wheezy, wheelchair-bound patriarch (Kevin McCarthy) and his psychologist daughter (Shanna Reed). Vernon is already having an affair with Reed's devious husband (Craig Wasson). Soon the bodies are dropping like three-day-old fruit flies.

Though the movie is short on chills, the superior cast makes this a better-than-average thriller.
