Storyline

Famed psychiatrist and known ladies man Dr. Palmer Harrison is found murdered in his office after the end of the working day. He died with an erection, leaving the police investigators to suspect initially that his sexual partner at the time is the murderer. Their lead suspect is who is listed as his last patient of the day, heiress Karen Wettering, whose father, Charles Wettering, is dismayed at whatever negative publicity his children, especially Karen, are always the center of. Karen categorically denies having attended that scheduled session or having killed Palmer, but she does admit to having had a sexual relationship with him. Roger Bellamy, Karen's lawyer and friend, asks his friend, recently widowed psychiatrist, Dr. Peter Rexler, to conduct an initial psychiatric evaluation of Karen to make sure there are no hidden skeletons with which he has to worry in court. That meeting leads to a sexual relationship between Karen and Peter, who now has a vested interest in seeing that ... Written by Huggo

Worse than a sub-average TV movie
3 March 2001 | by (Victoria, BC Canada) – See all my reviews

While the original screenplay may have been based on an interesting story, anything resembling a quality story was lost by the time this one got to video. The acting was flat -- worse than Melrose Place (this movies has two actors from that unfortunate TV series). Don't be fooled by the interesting story on the back of the video or by the fact that it came from BlackWatch Releasing (which often releases good stuff)...this lackluster flick is not worth your time.
