Movie Info

An innocent man discovers things are not always what they seem as he's led into a web of murder and revenge in this sexy thriller. Babee Gordon (Thomas Newton) is a quiet, introverted bachelor who one day discovers he has new next-door neighbors, Keith and Vera Miller (Rutger Hauer and Virginia Madsen). Keith and Vera are a friendly, outgoing couple eager to become aquatinted with Babee, while Babee is intrigued by Keith, an ultra-confident ladies' man, and is more than a bit infatuated with Vera, a sexy blonde. As Babee becomes close friends with the couple, he realizes that not all is well with their relationship; one day, they become involved in a serious auto accident after a heated argument. While Vera walks away from the wreck, Keith is confined to a wheelchair, and suffers severe brain damage that prevents him from speaking. Or at least that's what Keith wants people to think. He soon confides to Babee that he's been faking his injuries, and that it's all part of an elaborate plot to seek violent retribution against everyone who has ever crossed him -- so would Babee like to be his partner in crime? Lying in Wait also stars Vanessa Dorman, Shannon Whirry, and Tony Bill.

Audience Reviews for Lying In Wait

Bland and downright boring thriller, cheesy production, silly performances and non existent direction. It meanders along aimlessly. It makes you wonder who thought this might actually be a good movie.
