Lame, boring, slow, headache inducing

"Murder on Line One" tries to trick you into think it's some kind of
80's slasher flick. The VHS box features a guy holding a giant Michael
Myers style butcher knife...the killer never stabs anyone in the film.
"Murder on Line One" is more of a police procedural than a horror film.
The plot revolves around a man being falsely convicted of murders he
didn't commit. The real killer contacts a female journalist and tries
to get her attention by sending her eyeballs. The journalist tries to
prove the imprisoned man's innocence all the while he friends are being
This movie features one of the most head inducing scores I've ever
heard. Add to that, the film's bluish hue and "Murder on Line One" will
give you a headache. The acting is nothing special and the gore is
minimal. There is a quick topless shower shot but it's not impressive.
The twist ending is obvious and you can see it coming a mile away.
A lot of times these films are forgotten for a reason. This film is
kind of rare to track down but it's not worth the effort or a dollar.
An amusing thing in the film is that every time the killer hits a
victim over the head with the baseball bat a really comical cartoon
sound effect follows. "Deadline" is flat out dead.
