Storyline

The Carr Family is a well known family of cops, for three generations now. Now the current generation of cops are investigating a serial killer who murders his victims all differently so they can't trace them all back to him. Yet the murder starts sending Tom Carr, at the police station, videos with him, the serial killer, on it. If that wasn't bad enough. Tom and his wife Helen have to care for their nephew, Matt, when his mom is killed and his dad is hospitalized one night after a shooting at a near convince store. The killer starts to get personal now and attacks the Carr family, by kidnapping and threatening to kill Matt. What will the Carr family do in this time of Crisis? Will Matt be saved in enough time or be the next victim to the killer? Written by Princessmaniac1

Unbelievable plot, awful acting, the ads were more entertaining
7 August 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A dysfunctional Dallas police family with a blonde bimbo daughter (who just happens to be a police officer ... unknown to her father !!!!!) chase a Dirty Harry style nutcase around a merry-go-round of circumstances each more unbelievable than the last. I found myself cheering for the perp. when he almost murdered the blonde. If the murder had taken place 3 generations previously we wouldn't have had to watch this rubbish.

Deary me.
