While out fixing a sprinkler head one morning in Southern California, humble gardener Mitch Rafferty answers his cell phone and gets a disturbing threat: His wife, Holly, has been kidnapped, and if he doesn’t dig up $2 million, she’s dead. And if he goes to the authorities, the kidnappers will frame him for her murder.

Body Count
Ten.

Worst Death
Stunned by a Taser, then dispatched with gardening shears and a hand trowel.

Lowdown
Dark, entertaining, and utterly disposable.
