Gripping and intense
30 May 2002 | by (NH) – See all my reviews

Although this TV movie has not been paid much attention, and I did catch it on TV way after it ever came out, 'Tall, Dark and Deadly' is reasonably impressive being such a small project.

The plot itself is excellent, however simple, I can't think of any movie such a story has been used for. The musical score is quite catchy, again, it's simple, but it adds on well to the action in the movie and the building suspense. It's basically all about plot, almost like going on the ride for yourself, and within thirty minutes the movie is quite addictive. The story issues are broad, ranging from murder and obsession to blackmail and intense scenes of fear.

I do have a few complaints about the movie, for example, not all the plot is good. It barely touches on the sexual themes it presents which would be a much bigger deal given the situation. It also didn't explain the way things worked out in the end in detail, so I was left in confusion. There are a few plot holes, but nothing noticeable while in the midst of its suspense.

I recommend this film to just about anyone. 6/10
