Obscene phone calls lead to dead connections.
23 February 2003 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Mediocre thriller about an asthmatic detective(Michael Madsen)and a young reporter(Lisa Bonet)trying to get a line on a serial killer(Gary Stretch) who makes obscene phone calls and leaves most of his victims in motel rooms. Brutality and a glimpse of sex. Just not enough to even be a mild winner. Also in the cast:Lisa Sinclair, Jimmy Ortega, John Clayton Schafer and Parker Posey.
