In suburban Reston, Virginia, George Washington University American History professor Michael Faraday is still mourning the death of his wife, FBI agent Leah Faraday, after three years. His inside knowledge of the agency colors what he teaches in his classes. Although on good terms with Leah's ex-partner, Whit Carver, and the agency in general, Michael wants the agency at least to acknowledge their responsibility in her death in the line of duty. Michael is moving on with his personal life, he being in a serious relationship with his former teaching assistant Brooke Wolfe. Although he likes Brooke, Michael and Leah's nine year old son, Grant Faraday, may not yet be quite ready for Brooke to be a permanent part of their lives. It is only in helping adolescent Brady Lang who he sees in medical distress that Michael meets his new neighbors, Oliver and Cheryl Lang, Brady's parents. In the process, Michael and Brooke becomes friends with the Langs, as Grant and Brady become friends. ...Written by
The main character in the movie Red Nightmare (1962) lives at Arlington Road. This anti-communist short movie is about Soviets infiltrating America. Everybody seems to be plotting against the main character. See more »
During the final scene in the FBI parking garage, Michael Faraday opens the trunk of his red Ford. There are only two ways to open the trunk of this type of Contour: You either have to pull a lever at the inside of the car beside the driver's seat or you open it with the key of the car. Michael does not go into the car and he can't also be seen putting the key into the lock under the right tail light. But anyway, he's able to open the trunk. See more »
[Talking about Grant]
If you want to be his father, you will walk to your house, sleep in your bed, teach your classes, and live your life!
What are you doing? How many people are you going to kill?
Well, if I see any strange cars on my street, if you feel compelled to talk to someone, a federal agent perhaps, I imagine we're just going to kill one.

The R-rated version is missing the graphic gore that was in the original shooting script of the film. The UNCUT bootleg of the workprint version is on some bootlegger's websites and has ALL the graphic gore cut to avoid the "X" rating. See more »
This is a nifty suspense story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I was craving some ice cream as we watched it but couldn't tear myself away until it was over. (And I love ice cream!) And the ending is, well, intriguing. It got a little silly in spots but overall it's a dandy nail biter with solid acting, great direction, creative camera work and a taut script. I gave it an 8.
