Storyline

J.D. returns to his small Texas hometown where four years ago he left Carrie at the altar. She's now a deputy sheriff, and she's not happy to see him. He soon has a job offer in Bakersfield, so he's off to California with Carrie telling him not to come back. Late that night he stops to help a woman whose car has broken down, and soon he's both her protector and her lover, little realizing she's an escaped mental patient - a serial killer who adopts the name, dress, gestures, and mannerisms of her latest victim. As they head toward California, she leaves a trail of bodies. The FBI, with help from Carrie, is on the tail of the lovers. But is J.D. her next prey? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Zuniga looks good; nothing else is
19 June 2004 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

Well, this one had some imaginative plotting for a cable movie. Though there were some good-sized holes in it. Such as Resnick going about in a leather jacket and no tie, something FBI agents NEVER do. Daphne Zuniga did a good job with her character(s) here, even if hardly anyone else did. She was awfully pretty, too. Red West is the only other cast member I can compliment. James Wilder wasn't terrible, but not very good either. Don Harvey was awful, and Michell McBride OK in a very small part. Alexandra Paul wasn't very good in this one. This surprised me, because I think she's done some good work elsewhere. I guess she got too involved trying to pull off the hick Texas accent and manner, and I think she missed it by a wide margin. This movie had some promise, but it wasn't really kept. Grade: C-
