Slow start gives way to intense moments, interesting plot
19 March 2000 | by (Anchorage) – See all my reviews

Vision of Murder began with a slow start, but increasingly picked up the pace as the plot thickened. Melissa Gilbert gives a convincing performance, as always, as a woman who sees visions that she is terrified of, and afraid to share with anyone, because her "gift" has ostracised her from many communities. In this small town, she knows there is a killer loose, and finally goes to the police with what she has "seen." The psychological battle has begun between the killer and Donielle however, and only she can stop him. The title suggests this is based on fact, as well as a living person. I'm sure Donielle prefers her seclusion, but I would have liked to hear about what she is doing now (including cases she is working on?) - maybe she'll write a book! If anything, I found myself wanting the movie to continue and not end. Maybe that's a true sign of a captivating movie, when you are sad the ride is over.
