It must be getting hard to come up with fresh ideas for some nut case to be chasing around after someone. It's a pretty basic formula after all. He or she wants to kill you for some logical or illogical reason or another, right? There isn't a whole lot of room for originality. In the case of Flinch, you have two people who know the identity of the killer and he in turn knows they know he killed someone. What a zinger!
Did I mention the two people trying to evade the demented killer are live floor window models for a department store played by none other than Judd Nelson and Gina Gershon? Talk about a dynamic duo. Thankfully they work really well together on screen. That leaves Nick Mancuso to be the obsessed artist/killer who owns an art studio called Torso's and if you're as smart as I think you are you can probably guess why it's called Torso's. His turn as the baddie is the kind you seen so many times before, he's done so many times before.
Naturally, the story rolls out in predictable, made-for-TV fashion. There's no surprises, no real flair, and an abundance of stock characters that would feel right at home in a sit-com. It does what it has to do to be watchable but not a smidgen more. It's not a movie you talk about, set aside time or money for. You catch it late night and maybe you watch it out of boredom. You know the routine. If only for Judd Nelson and Gina Gershon's on screen chemistry.
