A young smalltown reporter, Jessie St. Claire, begins investigating a killer stalking his victims making video tapes. This might just be the career opportunity, which she has hoped for. When she herself becomes a target and suddenly disappears, the case attracts a colleague from the nationally syndicated television show "American Crime" as well. Together with Jessie's camera-man and later joined by her producer he tries to solve the mysterious case. Written by
A pretty average thriller is made much more uh, interesting with Cary Elwes coming in and putting in THE most "What was he thinking?" characterisation and accent I've seen in a looooong while. The story is about a local camera crew trying to figure out who's behind the killings of local women. They receive mysterious tapes at the station, and they're of the women the killer is stalking! This gets the attention of a crime show, called "Amercian Crime" which is hosted as Elwes. OK, now, on to his character.. Try to imagine Cary Elwes imitating John Huston imitating Robert Stack, and you have a pretty good idea of where this is coming from. MAJOR scene chewing from Elwes is in place here, so much so, that, yes, it distracts from the story. So much so, we're trying to figure out if this, yes, is indeed a comedy, the way Elwes carries on. I mean, what was the director thinking? Or was indeed, a "Living In Oblivion" type of thing? (I need to see that again)
