7/10 - pretty solid, but slow to build up and fairly thin climax.

Pretty good. It went a bit "Night of the Hunter" at the end which is no bad thing

Reallly didn't like this - reminded me quite a bit of the hideously dull Coffin Rock from 2009. For the first 30 minutes its a slushy rom com, then as soon she rejects him he instantly flips to derranged psycho. This'll soon be in bargain bin of your local petrol station 3/10

Highly forgettable stalker thriller which would have been much better had it really exploited the religious angle a bit more. As it was, there are dozens of films out there like this.

Felt like a slightly more edgy made for tv movie.
Did not like this at all.

I completely agree, it was wasted on not exploring the religious side and just being about the individual. I really like cult/religion films so I was let down by this. I saw a comment on here earlier where someone said it was a bit like something out of Desperate Housewives? I completely know what they mean, especially as the lead actress resembled Teri Hatcher so much.

Not very original but well shot and acted and did keep my interest.

Contrary to popular opinion, I thought this was good. Very well shot, well acted.
True, there was nothing remotely original about the basic plot, but I liked the fact that they'd set out to make a more realistic stalker movie which avoided some of the standard cliches:
The woman realises her mistake early on and actually tells her family.
The husband doesn't overreact; in fact he and his cousins only mildly rough the guy up to give him a fright.
The woman reports it to the church and they actually believe her, immediately.
The crazy guy flips, for sure, but he doesn't kill everyone who gives him a sideways look.
He doesn't even kill the dog!!!
Having said all that, it was so low-key and lacking in big shock moments that I found myself forgetting it by the end of the day.

No classic, but I enjoyed it enough while it was on.
