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

would like to see a prequel/sequel
22 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I would like to see a sequel showing how Don and Wendy are now living their lives with all the insurance money, they are most likely constantly making love in various places in the world.

Also how their affair started and how they plotted to have Kim killed and set up Tim in the process.

I think a sequel would be a good idea with flashbacks of everything that happened before this film.

Cos I must admit that this was a decent film for a drama thriller and one of Shannon Tweed's most well acted work since ever, and at this age Shannon still looks very hot for her age so I would like to see what is happening in the characters' lives now and also how it all started.
