In a flashback sequence, the Tooms family – Henry, Rose and their teenage daughter Kimberly – are sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner, sharing their thoughts about what they have to be thankful for. Nearly a year later in the present, Rose Tooms has been murdered and her killer has not been found. Henry (Dermot Mulroney) spends much of his time renovating their house, which Kimberly (Diana Silvers) cannot leave due to a severe case of agoraphobia. Kimberly is taking medication, she spends her time on an online agoraphobia support group, and she meets regularly in her home with a therapist, Dr. Helen Saunders (Tembi Locke), who is becoming dissatisfied with the lack of progress.For her 17th birthday present, Kimberly receives from her father a necklace with a charm on it. When watching a television news report about a recently abducted teen girl, Kimberly notices that the charm on the gifted necklace looks identical to the one the missing girl is wearing. She goes online to research case of other missing young females, and notices they look similar to her dead mother. Suspicious of her father, Kimberly searches his room and the attic, finding evidence that appears to incriminate him. She calls her aunt for help with the intent of leaving the home, but can’t due to her agoraphobia.Tensions mount in the house. Kimberly confronts her dad, accusing him of killing the missing females and her mom. At one point, she feels threatened by her father and calls 911. However, her father convinces her that she needs him, and when two LAPD officers arrive, Kimberly recants her accusation. The officers leave the home, but before they do, one of them gives Kimberly her card. Kimberly goes online to research Propofol, a bottle of which she has found among her father’s belongings. Discovering that it is an anesthetic and sedative, she becomes more convinced that her father is a killer. Meanwhile, Henry has located evidence of his daughter’s snooping. Father and daughter become violent towards each other. Kimberly slashes Henry with a knife after he lunges at her. He chases and catches her, injects her with Propofol, and locks her in her room. She escapes her room, but not the house, and Henry catches her again after a chase in which they cause considerable damage to the house.Dr. Saunders arrives for her next session, and Henry warns Kimberly that if she says anything, someone will get hurt. He also sits in on the therapy session. When Kimberly goes to the kitchen to make tea, she puts Propofol in her father’s cup and a slips a note (“Need Help, call 911”) under Dr. Saunders’. The doctor notices the note as she’s leaving, upon which Henry pulls her back into the house and kills her with a box cutter. Henry ties up Kimberly and confesses to his murders, but he blames Kimberly for the therapist’s death. The Propofol kicks in, however, and he is temporarily knocked out. Kimberly is able to grab the box cutter and free herself. She calls the police officers, who instruct her to leave the home, but she cannot. Henry awakes and attacks Kimberly. Noticeably crazed, he pours gasoline throughout the home and sets it on fire. In the attic, Kimberly entices Henry into walking over a covered hole in the floor, and he tumbles below and is eventually consumed by the fire. Kimberly crawls out a window to escape the burning house and waits for the police to arrive.The second installment of Into the Dark, Flesh and Blood”stepped it up from the first. This movie is suspenseful with great acting and a good plot. I felt myself nervous for the characters at time, which only happens with a great suspenseful movie! I definitely recommend!
