Trust is their weapon. Innocence is their victim. Hollywood grande dame Faye Dunaway, the Oscar-winning star of such cinematic milestones as Bonnie and Clyde and Chinatown, gives a typically powerful performance as a domineering parent in this explosive drama about two lethal con-artists who kidnap the children of a struggling single mother, played by Desperate Housewives' Nicollette Sheridan. Garrett James (Oscar nominee Michael O'Keefe, Too Young To Die?) and his wife Donna seem the perfect neighbours. Kind, generous and desperate for children of their own, they... are eagerly befriended by Anna Morse (Sheridan), a lonely waitress with three daughters who is fleeing from an abusive husband and who receives nothing but cold disapproval from her mother, Ellen (Dunaway). But the charismatic Jameses hide terrible secrets: they are wanted criminals, guilty of larceny and other, more deadly, schemes. Within no time at all, they have insinuated themselves into the children's lives while subtly undermining Anna's security. Suddenly, Garrett and Donna vanish, taking Anna's daughters with them. Receiving little help from the police or her mother, Anna has only one ally: Jack Driscoll (Ernie Lively, Overkill: The Aileen Wuornos Story), a hard-bitten cop who follows an intriguing trail of leads and uncovers horrific details of Garrett's psychotic past. Forced to cope with the realisation that her daughters are in the hands of a murderer, Anna must struggle to hold her life together while launching a valiant race against time to save them. The People Next Door is written by Fred Mills (Overkill: the Aileen Wuornos Story) and directed by Tim Hunter, whose controversial 1986 feature River's Edge (starring Keanu Reeves) was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
