    • Synopsis
    • Cloe and Michael Carpenter live happily with their two daughters in a suburban house, with a guest cottage in their backyard. When they receive news that their prospective tenant was in a car accident, they are faced with the decision to leave the cottage vacant and lose out on the much needed income, or find a new renter at the last minute.
      As luck would have it, a charming young romance novelist, Robert Mars, arrives looking for a place to stay. Much to their surprise, soon after he moves in, unnerving things begin to occur. Robert covers the windows with black cloth and changes the locks. He keeps late hours, has various people coming and after several uncomfortable encounters, Chloe and Michael fear for their daughters' safety. Their fears are heightened when their family friend goes missing. However, with no concrete evidence to support any claims against Robert, and legal hurdles working against them as landlords, the Carpenters soon find themselves battling an unknowable threat in their own backyard.
