Cary Elwes and Alicia Silverstone play the leading characters in this real-life suspense film. Elwes plays the role of a journalist who has become the object of affection for a precocious teenage girl. The story unfolds as Nick Eliot, played by Elwes, moves into a guest house that Adrienne Forrester’s (Silverstone) family owns. Eliot is a newspaper journalist whose life in the guest house was very comfortable until he meets Adrienne. Adrienne becomes enamored of Eliot through no fault of his own. He does attempt to resist her advancements; however, he does not firmly reject a kiss. The Tudor mansion and the adjacent guest house become a place of terror for Eliot as he begins to see the results of Adrienne’s wrath. She begins mildly enough by taking a key to Eliot’s car. As her obsession increases, Eliot’s concern over his own well being escalates. Adrienne’s parents are not in the picture, although Eliot does have a romantic interest: Amy. Amy is in danger, just like Eliot, because she is now a threat to Adrienne’s obsession.
