Better than average
9 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a better than average movie for two reasons: the actors are of high quality (Howard Duff, Louise Latham, Mary Beth Hurt) and the ending- I thought it was pretty bold and brave of the writer to stick with the ultimate revelation of who the rapist/killer was. Small towns often hold shocking secrets, as we learn in this movie. Jaclyn Smith is totally adequate in the lead role, I agree with the one review which referred to her as somewhat flat, but I think that was a deliberate choice on the part of the actress. Certainly her scene with Howard Duff in the kitchen is intense, and the ending is suspenseful. Definitely worth seeing.
