Storyline

It was the best of times... When Tim Marsh has a chance encounter with old high school buddy Don White, his life changes forever. Tim and his wife Wendy quickly find themselves drawn into Don's world, a dizzying orgy of exclusive parties, exotic cars and beautiful women. In the hills high above Hollywood, life is a party that never stops. For Tim, who has struggled since high school, the good times are alluring and seductive. But the good times are not what they seem. As the Marsh's are sucked deeper and deeper into Don's world, they soon discover that they cannot go back. Manipulation and seduction lead to blackmail, deception, and before long, a brutal murder. Tim finds himself at the center of a murder investigation and elaborate insurance scheme involving Don's wife. Dead By Dawn is a cautionary tale about the intoxicating effects of power, money and sex. Written by Anonymous

I loved this movie.
14 December 2000 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. My husband and I watched it on HBO. The story was so believable. And the people were so real. The men in the movie were sexy in a real way, not a Hollywood way. By the way, Shannon Tweed was also quite beautiful, although I'm not sure most housewives walk around the house in thongs all the time. The ending was a surprise. I never suspected who the murderer was. More movies like this, please.
