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>

Not Science Fiction
30 September 2002 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

For some reason I thought this was science fiction and that the chameleon exchanged bodies, but that is not what the movie is.

For what it is, this is a good movie; I do not know if it would be as good without Daphne Zuniga but with her and Alexandra Paul, who are both great actresses and beautiful women, it is certainly worth watching for those of us that appreciate them. There are parts that I did not understand, but probably I was confused about which body belonged to the killer or the victom. It would help to know that the killer is just one body that only changes in personality.

Alexandra Paul plays a sheriff whose former fiancee returns after a few years. He had left her on their wedding day and had never provided an explanation or any other communication prior to returning. Daphne Zuniga is the chameleon and the movie is about the sheriff's investigation of murders occurring in the small town and the search for the murderer. The details are somewhat predictable but the movie is entertaining. The movie is also a romance about the former fiancee's involvement with the sheriff and the chameleon.
