Low Key Affair For Scheider
8 September 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

But than again, it's nothing more than a made for TV movie of the week. Scheider still does a good job as detective Seaver, but it seems like there's more time spent detailing his relationship with Karen Young than there is going after the psycho. Keep in mind the movie is listed as a thriller, not a drama. Even though you have an ace director, great cast and good script, the low budget quality to the film just sinks it. It's the type of movie where they'll show people dancing in a ballroom to the same song over and over again. For those that are looking for a chiller after reading this movie's summary, forget it. Although some of the murders are graphic, the whole film just drags along until the predictable conclusion. One highlight though is the score by Pino Donaggio which is really good, at times even breathtaking, but there's just not enough of it in the movie. Worth a look though just to see Scheider nail down a Texas accent.

Score, 5 out of 10 Stars
