First he gets into your house. Then he gets into your head.

Terri (Taraji P. Henson) is a devoted wife and mother of two, living an ideal suburban life in Atlanta when Colin (Idris Elba), a charming but dangerous escaped convict, shows up at her door claiming car trouble. Terri offers her phone to help him but soon learns that no good deed goes unpunished as she finds herself fighting for survival when he invades her home and terrorizes her family.


A rain-drenched summer evening turns into a deadly cat-and-mouse game for a devoted wife and mother when an escaped killer finds his way into her home in No Good Deed, a classic film noir thriller starring Oscar®-nominee Taraji P. Henson and Golden Globe®-winner Idris Elba.

Terry (Taraji P. Henson) left a high-level career as an assistant D.A. to become a stay-at-home mother of two, living a quiet suburban life in an upscale Atlanta community. One stormy night when her husband is out of town, Colin (Idris Elba), appears at Terry's door claiming car trouble and asking to use her phone. Charmed by the charismatic stranger, she leaves him outside while she goes to get him a phone, but soon learns that no good deed goes unpunished. The next thing she knows, Terry is being terrorized inside her home by a vicious sociopath. What Colin doesn't realize, is that Terry may have the wits and strength to outsmart him at his sadistic game.
