How can a film with six slasher killings at the start be so dull?
4 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot summary sounds great, but this is seriously dull. I love William Shatner, but he was the only good thing about this film. And even I admit that he has his limitations! The long pauses we have come to expect are definitely there, and he hams it up as always but nothing could save this film from boring me to death. If you're a big fan of Columbo or Murder She Wrote, maybe this will suit you. Se7en it ain't. The tedious will she/won't she romance between "our hero" and his long-distance girlfriend simply distracts from the plot, while a possibly interesting side-plot in which she is involved with a case of multiple personality disorder dissolves into nothing as the police try to find the deranged killer who has struck so brutally. Although the film doesn't actually tell you whodunit at the start like the Columbo format, I still guessed pretty early on, and the rest of the film seemed just to be padding. Might have made a decent half hour drama - but I doubt it.
