Not bad for a TV movie
30 July 2005 | by (West Midlands, England) – See all my reviews

In all honesty I really liked this film, so much that i've seen it about 6 times. Yes, it's a cheap TV movie but it has good acting and a great storyline which should be as it is a true story. It's a sad, but very interesting story and never does it get boring. John Ritter(RIP) is great at playing the sleazy baddie. Not only is this film interesting but it's sure to teach you a few things about 'selenium' which is the 'killer' in this movie. A good film but I hope no viewers get any ideas in such a discreet way of killing another. Just watch it when it's next on and you will know what i'm going on about. A pure TV movie which I think everyone should watch!
