Not terrible, but not great.
9 October 2001 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

I just happen to have read the book this was based on, and there's a lot missing. It could have been a mini-series, and suffers at just barely over 90 minutes. Elizabeth Montgomery is okay as Blanche -- the woman was not really any deeper than EM portrays her. If anything, she didn't have that even that much depth. She was, apparently, a rather mindless and conscience-less murderer with obvious motives. She was not as an intellectual character (as you find in novels about killers). The main fault with EM playing her is that he is just a little bit too old for the part (being 60 at the time). In any case, because of the length of the film and the lackluster performances by the others in the film, what could have been a good character study becomes rather pedestrian -- just another TV movie. The fact that it is, indeed, based on a true story doesn't make it any more special. It is just well enough done to hold your interest -- an okay time-killer -- worth only one viewing.
