Good title for something so predictable
2 February 2012 | by (Cleburne, TX) – See all my reviews

Directed by George Mihalka, the man behind popular 80's slasher, "My Bloody Valentine", this made for cable flick features another psycho on the loose. The one here is strangling women in Boston. Annoying Zach Galligan stars as Patrick, a psychic who has visions of the murderer in action. Turns out, the teacher he has feelings for ("Night of the Comet"'s Catherine Mary Stewart) is involved with the man from his visions, Professor Steering. Patrick thus sets out to prove that Steering is responsible so that he doesn't make her his next victim.

The story here is pretty typical, and there aren't many surprises along the way. It is, however, a well-made picture, handsomely photographed and coming off as if it had a bigger budget than it actually did. The vision/murder sequences are my favorites of the film, edited in such a way that makes for an especially surreal vibe. The ice skating vision is particularly memorable.

Getting back to the story, one of the few surprises that we do get reminded me of a similarly effective one in the 80's anthology film, "Screamtime". Other than that, you pretty much know how this thing will end long before the halfway point. Thus, the film is aptly titled.
