Storyline

A San Francisco detective is obsessed with catching a serial killer who has been killing people for over 20 years. When the detective learns that he has only a few weeks of life left, he tries his one last shot - taking the suspect for a ride down memory lane, hoping to force him into a confession... Based on the never-solved case of the serial killer "Zodiac" from the 70's, a number of crimes supposedly committed by the Zodiac much later, and one modern hypothesis concerning the murderer. Written by Jerry King / Vassago

One of the best TV movies
11 September 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I usually steer clear of TV movies because of the many ways you know that it's TV movies five seconds into the picture. This one got my attention because of the unusual title and its gloomy, well-crafted mood that is established from the very start. While the ever present rain confirmed my suspicions of a misplaced story (even if claiming to be set in California the movie was largely shot around a stormy Vancouver, B.C.), the dark and oppressive outdoors beautifully complement Olmos' excellent acting.
