Never trust a shyster
2 February 2004 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Good tale of a low life serial killer who tears a town apart when he kills several local teens. The citizens are further incensed when they find his attorneys are suppressing evidence. Nicely done; I particularly enjoyed Coleman's part as the jaded, drunken criminal lawyer.
