Synopsis (via Lifetime)

Sara Wilson and her 18-year-old daughter, Jordyn, move into their dream home in a great neighborhood to make a fresh start. But when strange occurrences start happening in the house, Sara can’t help but feel danger is lurking closer than she thinks. Andrea Bogart, Adam Huss, Maya Jenson, Luke Meissner star (2023).

Recap/Wine Thoughts

A beautiful blonde woman runs screaming for her life in between drywall before she is someone grabs her.

Cut to Beverly hills, where the same woman, Sara, shows her daughter their new home. Jordyn isn’t impressed because it is a foreclosed house and probably haunted. In the basement, there is a creepy pool with stone walls. Someone watches them from between the stones and is phrogging (Phrogging is the act of secretly living in another person’s home without their knowledge or permission.) in their home. 

Jordyn isn’t even excited when a cutie jogs by named Noah. She monotony objects to everything because she is bitter about the move. She accepts a ride to school from Noah; she was suspended from her last school for vaping… so hopefully, it goes better this time! 

At night Sara hears noises and walks around to investigate and doesn’t notice a hole in the wall with a man peeping through it. 

The next morning the leftover pizza is missing from the fridge, and Jordyn is PISSED. (I get it gurl, I love leftovers too.) Did the phrogger eat the pizza? 

Sara goes into work and gossips with her co-worker Lucy to get out some exposition. Sara was in an abusive relationship with Frank and broke things off, this is why she moved into the new home.

The old owner of the house, Colin, stops by to introduce himself. He is a contractor and lost the home between jobs. He tells Sara that he grew up in the house and it was built during the prohibition era and has a lot of places to hide booze. Sara is very interested in history and takes Colin’s number. She promises to take care of the place. 

After school, Noah drops Jordyn off and thinks he sees someone snooping around the house. Jordyn is concerned and tells her mom, but Sara rationalizes away her concerns. 

The sounds in the walls continue, and Sara thinks she has a rodent problem. She calls Colin to look into it, and he sets traps, but the sounds continue. Sara roams the house at night and is horrified to see a couch moved. (Rodants couldn’t do THAT!) Sara blames Jordyn, and that doesn’t go well. Jordyn calls her mom crazy.

Frank is lurking outside at night and freaks Sara out. She reminds him of his RESTRAINING ORDER and tells him to leave them alone. Frank doesn’t and tries to talk to Jordyn the next day. She goes full-on, angry teen on him. When Sara finds out she goes on Fully 

Noah and Jordyn spend time together and quickly connect. Noah sneaks into her room to “get a textbook” and spends time drinking whisky he finds with Jordyn by the pool. 

Sara invites Colin over for dinner, and they have a nice time; she doesn’t invite him to stay in the house and take pictures of her while she sleeps, but that is what he does! He almost gets caught by Jordyn, who is up late texting with Noah, and Colin leaves his camera out in the open. Sara blames Jordyn for the camera and pisses off the teenager again!

 Co-Worker Lucy is excited to hear more gossip. She thinks Colin sounds nice and that the house is haunted. Lucy promises to sage the place and suggests talking to the realtor. Sara meets with Kensall and starts the search for a new new home. 

Jordyn and Noah look up Colin online, and he doesn’t have a trace online. Colin watches from the peephole in the wall and knows he has to stop them from learning too much. Jordyn tells her mom that she is concerned, and Sara suggests she is just having a hard time with her mother dating someone new.  

A threatening painting is left at the front door of Jordyn and Sara, with their eyes blacked out. Sara calls Colin to come over for safety, and Jordyn pops off for always being around. She has a point; doesn’t he have his own house to live in? (No, no, he doesn’t)

Lucy stops by with some sage and is surprised to see Colin in the house when she keys in with a spare. When she asks if Sara is home, Colin tells some sketchy lie and knocks Lucy out with a saucepan, and hides the body in the walls. 

Sara comes home and sees Lucy’s car in the driveway. When she can’t find Lucy in the house, Sara calls the cops to investigate. She has had enough of the weird things going on. The detective listens to the strange things and takes notes on a literal notepad. )I love that he is hot and thorough.) Colin talks to the detective alone and blames Jordyn for everything. 

The detective searches the grounds and finds an old shed that looks like it is being lived in. There are photos of Sara sleeping taped to the wall. There is also a glass with the prohibition amendment on it. When the detective tells Sara and Colin, Colin books it and runs out of the house. He is caught. 

Even though Colin is on the loose, Sara and Jordyn STAY IN THE HOUSE?!?!?!? There is not even a police officer posted outside. Jordyn tells her mom Colin is obsessed with the house, and of course, he will come back in the night. 

Sara finds a hole in the wall and sees Lucy tied up and stuck in the wall. Sara rips off a cabinet and unties her friend. Lucy runs to get help leaving Sara to try and calm Colin down, who stands behind her with a 2×4. They run through never-ending wall space, and It looks like the set from Britney/Madonna’s music video for “Me Against the Music.”

The detective shows up and takes Colin away.

Sara meets with Kendall to finish up the sale of the house, but she changes her mind and decides to stay. Kendall is upset and tells Sara to reconsider. When Sara says no, Kendall goes into a trance and grabs a knife. She is the buyer and wants the house for a developing deal that will make her a lot of money. 

Sara throws hot tea on Kendall and runs for the pool room. They fight over the knife and end up fighting in the pool, Dynasty style. Jordyn jumps in and knocks Kendall out with a ceramic bowl. 

Everyone is happy in the end, and Jordyn drops the teen act as long as her mom makes Coq Au Vin for finner.

Side Note

Best Title of 2023? Yeah, I think so. 

Maya Jenson is either a jaded teen or a fantastic actress because I hated her teen character from the get-go.
