Is this Malice?
18 April 2001 | by (Birmingham,Alabama) – See all my reviews

I watched this film when it aired in 1990. Little did I know three years later in New York, I would be watching virtually the same film. This time, however, the film's title was "Malice". I was with a friend of mine, and each plot twist I told him what was going to happen. He thought I was a psychic,... or a copycat writer? Sort of makes you think,huh?
