Storyline

This is a true crime story based on the book of the same title by prosecuting attorney, Vincent Bugliosi. (Bugliosi is the L.A. prosecutor that put Charles Manson away.) On December 11, 1966, a murder occurs in a small neighborhood of El Sereno, CA. In the middle of the night, Henry Stockton is shot three times in the head and twice in the chest and then his house is set on fire. The murderer left no clues, baffling the police, until a year later when a young pregnant woman is found bludgeoned to death in a Jaguar. Strangely, these two murders are related. As the mystery unfolds a horrific tale of greed, lust and ambition are revealed. Written by Robin <soonerzs@yahoo.com>

A good TVM that works thanks to some strong performances
7 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When he murders her ex-husband in order to release insurance money, Alan's girlfriend, Sandra, immediately becomes the main suspect in the ensuing murder investigation. Meanwhile Alan is also married to the abused Katherine, who he plans to also murder for the money. However an ambitious young DA smells a case and refuses to let it go.

Based on a true story as told in the book by the DA involved in the case (Bugliosi) this TVM starts out looking like it may well be the usual sort of slush you get when you turn on the telly in the middle of the afternoon. The values are low: direction is obvious and direct, the sets look a bit basic and the music is the usual fare. However, after a while the story settles down and then starts going better. In the end the film is quite dramatic and involving and the case is enjoyable even if it lacks the sort of fireworks that we have been conditioned to expect from Hollywood movies.

A massive part of the reason that this film works is the work of several key cast members. Williams gives a really great performance in the lead and plays Palliko large without making a spoof of him. Howard also is strong as Bugliosi. The rest of the main cast is pretty good but not as assured as these lead two; however it is in the smaller roles where there are a surprising amount of well known faces who were not so famous when this was made. Vince is always watchable, Ashley Judd makes a sudden appearance and West Wing's Schiff is there too; none of them have much screen time but it is funny to tune into a daytime movie and see so many famous faces!

Overall this film is generally better than the daytime slot and production values would suggest. It isn't gripping but it is an enjoyable film and the fact that it is a true story helps. What makes it worth watching though is some great performances from Williams and Howard who both do different performances but are both the best things in the film.
