21 January 2001 | by (Trenton, MI) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie, and I was freaked out when I caught it on Lifetime the other day. It has a really creepy atmosphere, good plot, and an excellent performance from Ally Sheedy, who plays Cayce. Cayce is a psychic who has helped the police track down kidnappers and serial killers for years. However, she soon faces an even tougher case when she tries to catch a serial killer who himself is a psychic. This has some creepy scenes with eerie blue lighting. Also, the beginning sequence is very creepy (I always feel shudders go down my spine when I hear the murderer humming while we watch the girl squirming in the backseat). I like this movie a lot, and I recommened that you go out and rent it, your video store should carry it.
