Synopsis (via Lifetime)

Heather is a struggling artist living in a quiet suburban neighborhood. All seems well until one day the good-looking and single Tyler moves in next door. Heather is first intrigued by Tyler. But as news of a local serial killer begins to spread, Heather begins to question if Tyler may somehow be involved.

Recap/Wine Thoughts

The movie starts with a murder and some jewelry thievery! 

Cut to a beautiful mansion where we meet Heather. She is a restoration expert there to examine a painting. Janet, the owner, passes on Heather’s restoration because of her lack of pedigree until Heather sells herself. (Good For Her!) 

Back at her home studio, Heather celebrates with a beer!?! (Not WINE?) She notices a new neighbor is moving into the place across the street. He notices her, too, with a telephoto lens and some stalking. He follows Heather to a bar where she is celebrating with her BFF Jess. Heather laments about her ex Greg and compliments the bartender’s earrings. The bartender seems to recognize the neighbor. 

Heather meets her new stalker neighbor the next day and thinks he is hot. (Because he IS!) His name is Tyler. He is impressed with her artwork and shares that he is a photographer. They bond over being an artist and then later, Brunch with Jess. The bartender recognizes him again and asks if his name is Robert. He tells her to drop it; he needs a fresh start. She doesn’t, so he kills her by a dumpster to keep her from talking. 

Tyler buries the body in a flower bed and keeps her earrings. Heather compliments his landscaping, and they agree to go on a date. Heather is reluctant to do an at-home date with her neighbor. (Because she listens to true crime podcasts.) Her friend Jess promises her that it will be fine. 

At the dinner, Tyler takes photos of Heather and then makes out with her. She stops him because she wants to move slowly since her breakup with Greg is still so fresh. Tyler doesn’t show Heather his dark toom full of pictures of his victims and their earings. 

Tyler goes through Heather’s recycling and finds a love note that Greg wrote her. He finds Greg on social media and follows him to a brunch. 

Heather plays doctor with Tyler when he cuts himself. He uses the time it takes for Heather to grab bandages to steal her house keys. And make a copy of them. Then he sneaks into her house to lick the painting she is restoring and steal another one? Weird uses of those keys, bro.  

Oh wait, he is destroying the paintings and framing it on Greg. Heather calls the police and Tyler offers to help arrange for a locksmith. 

Heather tells Janet about the painting and will have to pay back her advance.

The police question Greg and he has an alibi, but it is his co-worker he is sleeping with. Greg is fired from his job and blames Heather. 

Greg gets into an altercation with Heather and Jess in her front yard. Tyler rushes over and beats the crap out of Greg, which freaks the girls out. The friends decide to stop hanging out with Tyler because he snapped. 

Heather decides to stay with Jess for a while but says goodbye to Tyler first. He starts asking questions, desperate to find reasons for her to stay. While she is in his house, Heather notices the bartender’s earring. Heather pieces everything together and realizes that Tyler is a dangerous man. 

Tyler tells Heather that she is special and he is obsessed with her. He locks Heather in his darkroom, but is interrupted by a drunk Greg at the door, who wants to apologize for his outburst. 

Greg tries to save Heather, but Tyler chokes him out. 

Heather breaks a picture frame and uses a shard of glass for self-defense. She almost gets away, but Tyler chokes her too while screaming about how perfect they would have been together. Jess shows up and hits him with a shovel. 

The police show up and question Heather. They wheel Tyler away, and he smiles at her. (Which is creepy, but also kind of hot!) 

Jess helps her friend sell her home and move to San Fransisco. Always be selling! 

Tyler ends up in a padded cell with the world longest drinking straw. He complements the nurses earring.
