Synopsis (via Lifetime)

Inspired by true events. Molly Bachman, a young bestselling author buys the apartment of her dreams in the city. As she settles in, ready to start work on her next novel, strange sounds and bumps in the night begin to alarm her, along with the feeling of being watched and followed. As she discovers the dark history of the apartment, she eventually discovers a horrifying secret–a hidden entrance to another abandoned apartment behind the walls. What lies behind those walls leads to a shocking revelation. Meghan Carrasquillo and Thomas Gipson star. (2022)

Recap/Wine Thoughts

The movie begins in black in white. A couple argues over how to handle their abusive child. The mother, Grace, doesn’t want to send him to an institution and promises to keep him safe or, more specifically, “These WALLS will keep you safe.” 

Twenty years later, up-and-coming writer Molly moves into the same apartment. She gets the place at a good price and is thrilled to move in with her BFF/Sister, Bella. The girls drink wine and talk about boys. Molly doesn’t have time for dating because she is focused on coming up with her next book idea. 

Sounds of creaking awaken Bella in the middle of the night; she gets up to get a glass of water. Both sisters suffered something traumatic in their past that haunts their dreams and maybe their present. Molly spends her day in meetings with publishers and feels like someone is following her. That is until she runs into a handsome man name Kyle. She invites him to walk her home, and he carries her groceries. Then she leads him to the wrong house, so he doesn’t know where she lives. Molly is obsessed with preventing stalkers from stalking her. (Which is VALID!)

Too bad for her; the stalker is already in the house. Pans start going missing, and dreams of intruders are becoming frequent and too real. Molly promises her sister that she won’t let anything happen to her. Even so, Bella starts to spend more nights with her boyfriend Carter, leaving Molly home alone. (Or so she thinks.)

Molly takes a bubble bath and drinks some wine to relax. A man watches her from a peephole in the wall. 

Kyle sees a flyer for a book signing and meets Molly at the event. He tells her he loved her book and gives her his number with no pressure, and Molly is flattered/intrigued. She calls him and asks him out for dinner.

On their date, Molly takes about her work and being behind on deadlines. Kyle asks her why she is on a date with him if she has more work to do! He walks her home once he learns that she owns the penthouse. Kyle tells Molly that the previous owners disappeared mysteriously. He also shares that the building tried to rent out the place, but tenents would never stay long. Molly invites him up to look around… her vagina. (J/K just the apartment.) Kyle is impressed, and they start making out and eventually having sex. Kyle hears creaking and investigates the sounds shirtless.

The following day, Molly leaves for work and invites Kyle to stay as long as he wants. He does, and Molly shares about her past trauma of a home intruder. The sisters scared him off and inspired the book. Writing it helped Molly move on, and refuses therapy when Kyle suggests she get help. 

A detective talks to Molly at another book signing to talk to her about a cold case related to her apartment. The detective has been following Molly around for a few weeks. He tells her the son Ethan Chambers most likely killed his father, and his mistress inherited the apartment and sold it to Molly. The detective asks Molly to call if she finds anything in the home. The story inspires Molly to start her second book. 

As Molly is writing alone, she hears a wind whistling and feels a draft behind the walls. She finds a crack in the drywall near a bathroom cabinet. Molly tears it off the wall and finds a large hole that leads to an empty hallway. Kyle comes over to investigate and tells her he will look at the building plans and cover the hole with plywood. She is creeped out. 

Molly sets up a coffee date with the seller to ask about the secret passageway. The woman says she never met the Mother or Ethan. She also tells Molly that Ethan was going to be sent away by the father, but then they both mysteriously disappeared. 

When her publishers push Molly for more details on her book idea, she tears down the plywood, grabs her phone flashlight, and heads into the tunnels. They lead to an old elevator shaft which is causing the draft. There is also a bedroom with Molly’s book by the bedside and a music box that belongs to her. Then Molly sees the peepholes in the bathroom. 

She crawls through a small crawlspace that leads to Bella’s bedroom. 

Molly calls Kyle to see if he will help her and hears his phone buzzing behind her. Molly realizes that Kyle is Ethan, and she calls out to him. Ethan/Kyle tells Molly that she reminds him of his mother. He screams at her that this is his home. He killed his father when he tried to sell the home and built out his in-wall room. The walls will protect him. 

Molly accuses him of watching her. Kyle/Ethan explains that he “fell” for her and is in love. He wants to live together with Molly forever. She isn’t having that and pushes him away, running to the bathroom. Molly locks the door and crawls back into the walls. 

Bella comes home and calls for her sister, unaware that Kyle/Ethan is in the house. He grabs Bella, and she screams no again as he drags her to the elevator shaft. 

Molly calmly tells him that they should keep the place together and the walls will protect them both. She gains his trust just long enough to smash him in the head with a hammer and sends him flying down the elevator shaft. 

Molly finishes her book and it is a success, she really should be thanking Kyle/Ethan because he essentially was her muse. He really was up there on the crazy/hot scale, so Molly should have seen that one coming TBH!
