Clean Break is a 2008 American film starring Tara Reid, Angus Macfadyen, and Colm Meaney. It was released in a few European markets in 2008 and in the United States on July 3, 2012 (as a Video On Demand title) under the title Unnatural Causes.


Julia (Tara Reid) and Matt (Angus Macfadyen) are the owners of a successful advertising agency in Barcelona. Apparently they are happily married, but Matt, a very talented professional but unstable person, is confident his wife is cheating on him. He has her followed and when he thinks his suspicions are confirmed, arranges her murder. Unable to stand his own guilt Matt commits suicide. Julia has survived the murder attempt but her life is still in danger in a world of where everything is possible for the rise to power.

Over the course of a year after it was released, Julia received death threats from anonymous sources. This led to a global witch-hunt based in Salem.
