Trivia

The singer in the club is playing a Korg M1 keyboard. The keyboard has no audio or midi cables plugged in - so the singer is just pretending to play the keyboard as without any audio or midi cables this keyboard cannot produce any sounds. See more »

One of the worst thrillers ever!
21 October 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I blame the writing on this 1993 inept TV who-done-it. That credit goes to Randall Badat and Danny Rubin. Then add boring directing and you have a real bad movie. Even Marin Sheen, overacting a lot, can't save this bomb. D B Sweeney didn't seem connected to this. And Marlee Matlin, who hasn't done well since LESSER GOD, was horrible. Running around screaming, panting and being obvious all the way. Why is it when people are being chased and don't want to be caught, they scream all the way. It was so obvious where she was. Only an idiot killer couldn't find her.

I can't even give this silly nonsense any vote at all. It seemed a terrible film from the start. No redemption, no character development, no mystery, not even believable acting. I've seen good actors try to make the most of bad scripts, but this group didn't even try. Why does someone like Mr. Sheen and Mr. Sweeney even consider making a dud like this? Is the work that hard to find? I agree on a rating from 1-10 I give this a big 0!
