Not even their mother could tell them apart, 12 September 2005
Author: Paul English from Ireland

'Killer With Two Faces' sees Donna Mills gain her third leading role in Thriller - 'Possession' and 'One Deadly Owner' being the other two. Like the latter this episode is somewhat flat and is not particularly memorable.

The story is concerned with two twins - Terry and Bob Spelling (played reasonably well by Ian Hendry). Terry has just escaped from a home for the criminally insane while Bob is a melancholy but decent architect trying to cope with the infidelity of his lady friend. Terry's penchant for killing and killing again is quickly demonstrated as he cruelly strangles a woman he has just had a amorous encounter with. Enter Patty Heron (Donna Mills character), an attractive American who meets Bob Spelling on a train journey. They get talking and she is impressed with his architectural knowledge so an arrangement is made for them to meet the following day to survey a house she has just bought.

There are shades of 'The Colour Of Blood' (from Thriller's first series) in this story what with psychopaths and trains but 'Killer With Two Faces' pales in comparison. There is some clever use of the doppleganger effect but it is all too predictable as the narrative lurches to a climax.

As spine-chilling tales go it's not bad but for Thriller standards this is only average.
