Straight-to-video, almost like a life-time presentation sees this sleepy, if rather underwhelming suspense drama treads water for so long to only end on a whimper. A young woman and her children horrifyingly watch from their car as her husband is beaten to death by two drunken rednecks in a car-park of a fast-food joint. Quite a few years later the case remains unsolved, but she's moved on with her life. That's until she's given a document from one of the old officers on the case which can reveal the killers and so she goes about seeking help from the public over a TV board cast. However the killers happen to be watching and decide that they want to pay her a visit. But also witnesses of her husband's death are being brutally murdered one-by-one. Is there a connection is she next along with her children?
The muddled script is thick on drama (where there are some very out-of- sorts, contrived and unconvincing developments), little suspense (weakly delivered) with a quite generic wrap-up. Sadly I found moments unintentionally laughably, mainly that of our trashy killers who were far from threatening. It didn't feel much like a thriller, but a piece looking more so of the affects facing victims of these types of deplorable acts of violence. It's rather numbing, possibly purposely done and this could be contributed to a non-surprising reveal. Meg Foster gives a strong willed, solemn performance, other than her Frederic Forest shows up in a minor part. Jean Bodon's direction is taut, but lifeless with a real lack of style.
