Bad Samaritan sees Sean, Robert Sheehan (“Geostorm“, “The Road Within“), as a young Irish man in Portland making money by entering people’s homes, using their keys, as he acts as a valet at a local Italian restaurant.
This goes wrong however, when he breaks into the house of Cale, David Tennant (“Mad To Be Normal“, “Doctor Who (TV)”), who is a tad unhinged after an incident in his youth.
Upon breaking into Cale’s house, Sean stumbles across a woman Riley, Jacqueline Byers (“Timeless”, “Salvation (TV)”), tied to a chair, badly beaten and needing help, Sean panics and makes his escape.
Cale isn’t a dummy though, and through a combination of remote tech and lots of mobile phones, he begins to tear Sean’s life apart, bit by bit.
Bad Samaritan is written by Brandon Boyce (“Wicker Park”, “Blank Slate (Short)”) and directed by Dean Devlin, who you may remember from Geostorm. It has some great talent, sadly, this isn’t enough to save it.
