Effective Low-Budget Thriller
26 December 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The aspiring actress Daphne (Gina Gershon) and the aspiring lawyer Harry Mirapolsky (Judd Nelson) work in a department store window as live mannequins to survive. Daphne is financially supported by her boyfriend William (Andrew Airlie) that neglects her, and Harry that failed three times in the examination to the Bar Association has a non-requited crush on her. One night, the unfaithful William blew Daphne off and she breaks with him. Harry invites her to go to the store to spend the night partying. They accidentally witness the artist Miles Raymond (Nick Mancuso) killing his model in his car and they go to the police to report the murder. They are attended by Detective "Bat" Fowler (Frank Cassini) that studied with Harry and he does not believe on them. He conducts a superficial investigation and does not arrest Miles. Daphne and Harry decide to quit their job and she moves to his apartment. Meanwhile Miles mistakenly kills Daphne's replacement in the window. Soon they discover that the killer is hunting them down and they need to so something to protect themselves.

"Flinch" is an effective low-budget thriller, with good story and chemistry between Gina Gershon and Judd Nelson. There are many flaws in the story, and maybe the worst is when Daphne unlocks the door of the department store and leaves it open. Why a wife would stay with a killer is also unexplained. Nick Mancuso has a ham performance with grimace in the role of a psychopath. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Vitrine da Morte" ("Window of the Death")
