A picture perfect middle class family is shocked when they find out that one of their neighbors is receiving obscene phone calls. The mom (Beverly R. Sutphin, played by Kathleen Turner) takes slights against her family very personally, and it turns out she is indeed the one harassing the neighbor. As other slights befall her beloved family, the body count begins to increase, and the police get closer to the truth, threatening the family's picture perfect world.

Continuity mistake: During the opening, when the fly finally lands on a coaster, Beverly Sutphin swats it quickly and removes the swatter. Cut to a close-up, and the swatter and dead fly are still there.
