Storyline

For her newest sculpture artist Lily has an unusual idea: During the exhibit she wants to play anonymous apologies. She sets up an answering machine on a special phone line and publicly invites people to call. But soon she gets more dramatic calls than expected: she attracts a psychopath serial killer who uses her project to confess and announce his crimes. At first she doesn't believe he's authentic, but Detective Hungate urges her to give the tapes to analysis. Since both Hungate and the killer seem to develop a crush on her, it quickly becomes personal... Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Not bad as far as made for TV movies go...
20 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

This one has kind of an odd plot but it has enough twists and turns to keep most people entertained for a few hours. It was interesting for me to have gone to college in Pittsburgh at about the same time and seen familiar landmarks used very effectively, especially their public transportation system.
