Jana Mercer is the sole survivor after the serial killer has brutally slaughtered her family. Incredible trauma has isolated the girl from the whole world. She's living in fear and loneliness. The only contiguity is her brief interviews with the shrink and connection to Internet. Until the night when someone has established communication with Jana via computer. She realizes that her interlocutor is the ruthless murderer who has killed her family. And to her horror she finds out that he is going to be released from his confinement very soon. Written by

Brigitte Bako gives a winning performance as Jana Mercer, a beautiful, sarcastic interior decorator who witnessed her family being murdered as a child by psycho Calvin Hawks (Larry Drake). Twenty years after the original crime, Jana (a night owl with a ultra-secure penthouse apartment) is again harassed via computer by Calvin, who informs her he's getting out on parole very soon and wants to be reunited. Unable to convince the authorities he's after her again, Jana retreats to the country with her new cop boyfriend. Guess who else shows up?
Drake is amusing and creepy as the psycho who tracks her down, slits a librarians neck ("Just because I could.") and tells another woman "Fear is the distance between pain and nothing!" It's silly that a mass murderer would have a laptop and advanced internet access IN his prison cell and would be getting out on parole after killing three people (hell, or nowadays, maybe it isn't), but, that aside, this has several surprising and effective plot twists, some witty dialogue, a pretty twisted flashback and nice attempts at establishing characters.
