Storyline

Theresa is one of the twelve jurors who have to decide about a case of assassination. She believes very strongly in the innocence of the young man, but can't convince the others. During the discussions she realizes that one member of the jury knows details that he couldn't know from the trial alone. Since no one believes her suspicions, she investigates on her own.

Ludicrous in the extreme.
18 October 1998 | by (England, Brighton) – See all my reviews

Although "A Killer Among Us" tries hard to be suspenseful it is a very poor film. Showing all the disappointing traits of bad TV movies the film is essentially unsatisfying despite promising much. There is too much trying to be "Twelve Angry Men" in this film which is the story of a jury that is slowed down by one persuasive member. Where this film differs from the classic "Twelve Angry Men" is the ludicrous twist that the jury foreman is the actual killer in the case the jury are debating. Jasmine Guy's dogged heroine then goes out and solves the case by doing her own detective work. Total poppycock. The story is both unbelievable and ludicrous. Although clearly the makers have tried hard here, the film does not hold much real excitement.
