Fairly satisfying thriller, but not exactly Dostoevsky
7 July 1999 | by (JACKSONVILLE, OR, USA) – See all my reviews

One really hopes there are women with the courage of Patty Duke's character, who is under threat of attack by a psychopath, and that there are concerned cops like the Lieutenant in this story. Sadly there certainly are wimpy husbands and sons-in-law like these in the film, and psychopaths, too. Good cast and better than average editing for modern films are part of the package. If your standard is Dostoevsky, you won't be satisfied, but if you like a story about a courageous lady, it's a nice 88 minutes.
