Bill and Billy are having marital problems but these pall when compared to the problems they have to face from their next door neighbour. If that wasn’t enough, there is the general alarm put out to be on the alert for a serial murderer thought to be in the district.
In the heavy night of the Mornington countryside, their weekender cottage offers scant protection from what is determined to befall them from the outside and what is determined to torment them from the inside.
It is not as if they are living in some fiction where the fear comes driving at them intermittently as per the scripted climaxes of a script; this night they have to live with a fear that is constant, unharboured.
And so does the audience.
It is difficult to tell who is who, or what is what. The only thing Bill and Billy – and anyone else involved – know is that it is very killing.
