This was actually a really nice surprise for something I randomly picked off of cable. A lady shrink with a brain tumour goes to a cottage to relax for the weekend with her hubby and sister but things don't go as planned when a mysterious stranger shows up. He's freezing so she helps him out, only he's got a partner with a gun! It turns out that one of the men was a former patient and angry for revenge, but it's actually quite twisted and entertaining. It's more psychological than physical horror in places but it's a nice mix which should please most horror fans. It's a shame the title is so unmemorable because every time I go to recommend this to someone I can't think what it's called.
