Almost Dead and fully awful
6 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

They seemed to make this up as they went along, as the plot or what passed for one, just rambled on to the predictable ending. Doherty plays a psychiatrist who must have got her qualifications based on how short a skirt she could wear. For a professional career woman she doesn't have the sense to realise it's a good idea to wear a raincoat while walking round a cemetery at night when it's pouring with rain!

Helping her in this sad affair is a cop with an 'attitude.' Well, there's something you don't often see in films...a cop with an 'attitude,' and would you believe it? He also doesn't go by the book and plays by his own rules...how original....not.

Mandylor as the cop in question must have also got his qualifications by how much he could act the part by trying to be Sly Stallone as 'Rocky.'

This film isn't even entertaining as a 'so-bad-it's-good' picture, it's just bland and mediocre and the two leads are uninteresting as characters. Only the hunchbacked bar owner shows any sign of character and he isn't around for very long.

The conclusion to the 'mystery' becomes pretty obvious to viewers early on but it takes forever for the cast to figure it out. This type of story has been done so much better before in other films or TV detective shows and this is only worth watching if you want something to help you sleep at night.
