**SPOILERS** Uneven and somewhat ridicules thriller that has local psychic Sharon Avery, Tahneew Welch,going through all the slings and arrows from the police newspapers. Sharon eve has her befuddled and frustrated husband Larry, Currie Graham crewing the carpet as she's thought to be an unstable kook until her visions attract the serial murder Billy Morton. Whom Sharon claims to be in psychic contact with to make her his next victim.
We see Sharon at first working with the police on a missing person case that she solves with the little boy later found murdered in an alley just where Sharon says he was. The killer who's on the scene follows Sharon back home in his car and runs her off the road causing Sharon to lose her eyesight. Back home and feeling sorry for herself and not wanting to live anymore Sharon ties a weight to her body and throws herself into the swimming pool but just there and then her visions, psychic not normal, comes back to her as she sees a young girl being murdered in a park. Quickly changing her mind, by swimming to the surface, about leaving this realm of existence Sharon goes back to her psychic visions in order to help the police to prevent or solve the murder.
Back with the living it seems that no one knows, and Sharon never tells anyone in the movie, about her attempted suicide and new insight on going on living but the movie audience. Sharon desperately calls the police about her vision of murder and tries to stop it before it happens. The police that includes Insp. Frank Schumann, Michael ironside, and his partner Det. Fay Howard, Anne Marie Loder, are not at all impressed with Sharon's revelations. This action on the part of Schuman & Howard seemed a bit strange when we saw her earlier in the movie solving a murder for this same police department, and police officers, and probably having solved a number of other cases in the past!
Finding the missing girl murdered like and where Sharon said the police, and her husband Larry, are more against Sharon using her psychic abilities then ever before with the exception of the now believing Insp. Schumann who's told by his superiors to have Sharon put off any future missing persons cases. This gives you the impression that someone upstairs in the department is trying to have them covered up.
The movie "Black Light" has Sharon's husband Larry, a computer software engineer, working with Dr. Anna Gdard, Lori Hallier,who's treating his wife to cure her of her blindness. Dr. Gdard thinks that with the help of a new visual system that her medical computer company is producing she can get Sharon's sight back. As Sharon's sight improves her visions are recorded on video tape showing just who the serial killer is which has him move in for the kill on Sharon to quite her, and her visions, forever.
Full of plot-holes and misdirections by the movie-makers that by the time you should get really into the movie you lose all interest in it. Just by the credits you already know before the movie even starts that there's no suspense in "Black Light" to who the killer is since he's none of the people you would usually suspect in the movie are not playing the role of the killer; he's just actor Billy Morton in the credits!
The ending with Sharon being chased by Morton is so ridicules with him acting more blind then she does and not even being able to find her even though she seems to know her way around the house and front lawn with out as much as tripping over anything. The films conclusion is too outlandish to even describe, you have to see it for yourself, with Sharon defying physical and mechanical science as well as common sense to do in the crazed killer and with Insp. Schumann who Morton strangled earlier in the movie comes back from the dead but not in time to save Sharon;it turned out that Sharon didn't need his help at all!
