Excellent psychological murder mystery/thriller.
7 February 2000 | by (Kennewick, Washington) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. Lance Henriksen and Joan Severance both give compelling performances. Lance H. has a unique ability to combine mystery, menace, sensitivity and sexuality in the role of Adrian Cross. I find his rugged sensuality quite appealing. Beautiful photography.
