I saw this listed today in my TV Guide and decided to check it out. After reviewing the cast list I decided to TIVO it. It seemed vaguely familiar to me. When I saw Jurgen Prochnow's name as the star, I remembered him from a movie I had seen long ago. He was evil incarnate in his role. It was the first time I had ever seen him in a movie. He was unforgettable. After watching the beginning of this movie I realized they were one and the same. The rest of the cast is great, too. Eli Wallich, as always is super. This being about the same time he was in "The Executioners Song". Well worth a look. On FX Movies this week with out commercials. This movie is very similar to "A Cry for Help: The Tracey Thurman Story" (1989) (TV), another first rate TV movie.
