Absorbing psychological thriller set in an isolated lakefront cabin about a successful novelist (Johnny Depp) who is terrorized by a stranger (John Turturro) claiming that the author plagiarized one of his short stories and demanding restitution, threatening the scribe with a brand of backwater justice that includes cold-blooded murder. Based on a novella by Stephen King and buttressed by top-notch performances, writer-director David Koepp avoids buckets of blood in favor of more muted chills, crafting a suspenseful exploration of isolation and madness. Recurring gory violence, a discreet fleeting sexual encounter, some crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
