As good as a TV movie gets
17 December 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie recently debuted on TV in the UK. It was surprisingly great. Jennifer Beals plays a great diva and Keri Lynn Platt is really convincing as a psycho. Very similar to The Hand That Rocks The Cradle and Fatal Attraction (without the sex). Traci Lords has a small role as a TV presenter with a grudge against Sloane (Beals). Great soundtrack, performed by Beals and she looks hot! Watch this movie with few expectations and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
