Storyline

Drew is a young woman who drives to a small town she has never been to while in a trance. A year ago in this town Laura, who looked just like Drew, was murdered. Everyone assumed that Laura's boyfriend Teddie who went missing at the same time as the murder had done it, but Drew starts having dream sequences and trances that imply otherwise. Gradually through investigation and with the guidance of more visions from Laura, Drew uncovers the story behind the murders. Written by gagewyn

a so called chiller........ .thawed and Luke warm
28 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a very confusing film. Even for afternoon TV it rates poorly.

The story revolves around a girl turning up at a small town and looking remarkably similar to a girl who was murdered the previous year .

The problem for me seems that although the two girls are played by the same actress, the young men in it look remarkably similar too. Which left me feeling like I wasn't sure who was whom.

The actress playing the dead girl's mum is decidedly wooden especially when hearing something that had happened to her daughter that would devastate most mothers.

All in all not one to be re-watched . not even creepy although it was billed as a chiller .Its a chiller decidedly Luke warm.
