Excellent Thriller Should Have Had A Wider Release
26 April 2006 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I actually saw this when it was released to movie theaters in my area, with little advertising or promotion. However, I knew that Shannon Tweed was in it, so I was sold. "Liar's Edge" turned out to be a bizarre, well-crafted thriller making great use of it's Niagara Falls/Clifton Hill, Canada, locales. Shannon showed off her dramatic chops here in a role that was quite different for her, a widowed trailer park Mom raising her suicidal teenage son. Playing her son, Nicholas Shields was excellent, displaying handsome teen idol looks but acting talent as well. Future "90210" star and indie movie staple Kathleen Robertson also makes a good impression as a punk girl who takes a liking to Shields. The climax on Clifton Hill and in a shadowy wax museum was also well done, with a haunting musical score by Paul Zaza. If you come upon this movie, by all means, check it out. Mystery/thriller fans will enjoy this a lot, as will Shannon Tweed fans

  • but in case you're expecting skin from her in this, she stays


clothed. It's too bad this didn't receive a wider release, they could've made a great sequel.
