In the mood for a few chills and things that go bump in the night? If so, the Los Angeles premiere of Peter Colley's 1979 seriocomic psychological thriller, "I'll Be Back Before Midnight," at the Colony Theatre in Burbank may be your ticket, despite hokey hiccups here and there.
A bleak old house in the country wouldn't seem the ideal place to bring a wife fresh from a lengthy hospital stay for high anxiety and panic attacks. But that's where fragile Jan (Joanna Strapp) finds herself when husband Greg (Tyler Pierce) decides that the isolated property is just the place to restart the couple's faltering marriage.
Jan is willing to make the best of it until she learns that Greg's sleek, sophisticated sister Laura (Kate Maher) is joining them that very day for an indeterminate stay. Jan is certain that Laura is not only hostile to her, but is an unhealthy influence on Greg, who, it seems, just wants them all to get along.
