This film concerns a writer of mystery stories who bases his villain on a criminal, played by Malcolm McDowell, who is incarcerated in prison. Escaping prison after his apparent death in a fire, the criminal plans to revenge himself on the writer (Roger Moore) for 'stealing his personality', and proceeds to carry out a set of murders based around the novels. Moore is unable to convince the authorities of the true murderer and, alerted by an avid fan (Nancy Allen) who has psychic powers, seeks to trap McDowell into giving himself away. Written by

You know the type of film, you leave your comfortable chair to make some tea and don't bother to pause the film, and that's when you are forced to acknowledge the film is not so good, as otherwise you would have paused it. Well this is a non pauser of a film, so if you like tea or coffee and have many breaks during your movies then this is perfect.
One of my all time favorite Stars is Roger Moore so when I saw this title on a VCD at $2 new whilst working here in Dubai I snapped it up.
As the film progresses the labored script becomes increasingly painful for the cast to deliver, sometimes you feel they are almost screaming to get to the end of the next scene and they would start each scene petrified especially if it were long, I noted to myself how they began to look happier towards the end of the film, ....as I did.
Macolm McDowell tries very admirably to deliver his lines seriously but he questions you with pain in his eyes as to what type of Film this is, but you will have the same look as he does and as the director must have had.
