“There are certain family affairs I really don’t want anyone to know about.”

A man is convincing an ex-nurse to take care of his mentally disturbed and suicidal sister. Her job is really to make sure the sister will kill herself. It’s really a plot to secure the brother the inheritance. But as the nurse stay in the house and get to know the sister, while dating the brother, she finds out more about the family secret and why the sister is behaving as she does.

The only dedicated thing about this movie is the score. The script is not to bad actually, but the directing is bad, making the acting awkwardly played out in lots of scenes. The plot is obvious and dull. Reminds me of an early 70’s tv-crime episode. Not as engaging that it could’ve been. The cover art was misleading as well, but that’s something you have to expect when collecting these movies.
