A weird, disjointed little film
7 April 2000 | by (Newberg, Oregon) – See all my reviews

Here's a strange little thriller that fluctuates all over the place in a disjointed but intriguing way. Harry Hamlin (star of the upcoming "Movie Stars" TV series) plays Jack Beldon, a drifter who insinuates himself into a widowed (and relocated) mom's family. Her 13-year-old son (Trevor Blumas) has strong reservations about opening their home to a "stranger," and these feelings are compounded after a local woman is found strangled in her home and the boy detective uncovers dark secrets about Mr. Hamlin's past and... his alias.

Toss Graham Greene ("Dances With Wolves") into the stew as a babbling vagrant known as "The Creeper" and the interest level rises. Is Jack a ladykiller or has the "harmless" Creeper gone off the deep end? "Stranger in Town" keeps you guessing 'til the bitter end. Not Hitchcock, but not bad either
