Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: The movie goes to great lengths to prove what a psychotic, disgusting, and perverted animal Michael Foster is, making it very hard to sympathize with him after [[spoiler: Jordan and Casey leave him tied up in his basement with no means of escape or rescue.]]

* DistantPrologue: Takes place 6 months before the bulk of the movie.


Added DiffLines:

* FakeoutEscape: Attempted by Leah thanks to Jordan's instructions--she hides under the bed in room while leaving the French doors open, making her would-be attacker think that she's managed to flee. Unfortunately, when Jordan calls her back, he hears the phone and realizes she's still in the house.
