OK Time Killer
2 June 1999 | by (Boston, Ma) – See all my reviews

Short, suspenseful, and generally well-acted. There are worse ways to kill 90 minutes. And there are a couple of interesting twists in this story about a woman who thinks she has witnessed a multiple murder, but can remember nothing else. Bedelia and Riegert are almost always watchable. Generally nothing new, but certainly not bad.
