pretty good for no pay tv

Treat Williams plays a police officer who has lost part of his memory, yet keeps having flashbacks about a serial killer who binds and rapes his victims. Why does he do that , you ask? Ask one of his fellow police officer played by Tim Busfield who swears Williams knows more about the murders than he lets on. Any how, he enlists the aid of the good doctor(margaret Colin) to help him figure out why he has these flashbacks and how to stop the killer. Of course, they become romantically linked, and that puts her in danger, which he rescues her from, so why is there still time left in the movie?

Good performances all around, especially by Williams who keeps you guessing who the killer is with his charm and a heated performance by Busfield who would have criminals dragged into the streets and shot. Colin plays the part of concerned doctor, potential victim and caring lover all the while ignoring strange inconsistencies in facts.

If you get the chance, watch the movie, and tell me who the killer is, my d**ned VCR cut off before the show was over. I think I know, but I must be sure, was it really that obvious? I need closure!!!! 7 out of 10
