My Rating: 4/5 STARS
MovieStudio Quote >> “I paused the movie at several scenes. See it to know why!!!”
Famke Janssen stars as Marnie Wilson. a woman who kills her abusive husband and granted an early release from prison . She is released on the condition she remain on house arrest with an electronic bracelet that only lets her roam 100 feet from the electronic base ( hence the title ) . And finds that the house is haunted by the ghost of her abusive and violent dead husband ! ! yes it IS the same house she killed him in, bloodstains from the stabbing and all ….
She is isolated and shunned by family, neighbors and friends. Her husband was a New York Cop and no one believed any of her abuse claims. Or turned the other cheek. Not only is she left alone. but she has to deal with an abusive ghost. and his friend and ex partner who stalks her with hatred and a belief that she is covering up a clue to his unjustly murder.
This movie was truly a look into a woman’s battered life and the stigma it carries. Director Eric Red did a wonderful job with this movie . Famke emotional performance was amazing ! !
