Lifeless thriller
24 February 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this one on Amazon Prime under the title DANGEROUS OBSESSION. It comes as little surprise that nobody has bothered reviewing it before because it really isn't worth reviewing. The whole thing is a waste of time, a non-starter right from the outset. The only thing going for it is that it has a background of TV evangelism and religion-as-business, which is never really covered in the movies all that well. The Moonies also seem to be a big inspiration here.

The story is about the murder of a TV preacher and the subsequent investigation. There's a lot of stuff about a rich and ruthless businessman with scenes set in his offices and the like. It's very low budget with no action or incident. The main character is just a lackey who goes around romancing a couple of women before the big twist at the climax, which really isn't worth waiting for. The worst thing about this one? It's a toss-up between the lifeless characters and the static shooting style.
