Cast overview, first billed only:


Essentially a prequel to David Lynch and Mark Frost's earlier TV series "Twin Peaks". The first half-hour or so concerns the investigation by FBI Agent Chet Desmond (Chris Isaak) and his partner Sam Stanley (Kiefer Sutherland) into the murder of night-shift waitress Teresa Banks in the small Washington state town of Deer Meadow. When Desmond finds a mysterious clue to the murder, he inexplicably disappears. The film then cuts to one year later in the nearby town of Twin Peaks and follows the events during the last week in the life of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) a troubled teenage girl with two boyfriends; the hot-tempered rebel Bobby Briggs (Dana Ashbrook) and quiet biker James Hurley (James Marshall), her drug addiction, and her relationship with her difficult (and possible schizophrenic) father Leland (Ray Wise), a story in which her violent murder was later to motivate much of the TV series. Contains a considerable amount of sex, drugs, violence, very loud music and inexplicable ... Written by Douglas Baptie

In Twin Peaks,no one is innocent
16 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a fan of the TV series i was waiting for this to come out,now I'm hoping that David lynch will release the DVD with all the lost footage. as a prequel to twin peaks,it answers a lot of questions,the movie is more in your face then the TV show.its bizarre and creepy.Sheryl lee does an awesome job as the late laura palmer.while co stars;ray wise and grace zabriskie play Laura's parents.there's a lot of stars that were'nt in the TV show like harry dean Stanton,David bowie,Chris Issac, and kiefer Sutherland.David lynch has a style of film making that is unique.Moira Kelly takes over for Lara Flynn Boyle's role as Donna Hayward.the evil bob is enough to give Freddy Krueger nightmares.kyle maclachlan returns as agent cooper.look for a cameo by;heather grahmn. if you never seen the series watch this before you do.otherwise you'll be very confused.on behalf of all twin peaks fans,lets all hope that they release the special edition twin peaks:fire walk with me,with all of the edited scenes with all the great twin peaks characters.10 out of 10.a David lynch classic.
