After being raped by a serial killer, Jillian Hayes, Carol Rosen and Meg Pesaturo found "The Survivors Club", and they use the press to force the police and justice to arrest the rapist. Eddie Como is arrested, based on DNA evidences, and while going to court for trial, he is murdered by a sniper and the three women switch position from victims to suspects. Detective Roan Griffin, who is traumatized by the brutal murder of his beloved wife by the manipulative killer David Price, joins the investigation with detective Fitz Fitzpatrick trying to solve the case.

After three women are supposedly raped by the same man, they get together for regular meetings of 'The Survivors Club'. The suspected rapist, Eddie Como, is taken care of, but new evidence surfaces that suggests the rapist may still be out there. Besides, Eddie's wife seems very confident about her husband's innocence. Meanwhile, the three women are being investigated because they might have plotted revenge against Eddie, and two people are dead, possibly as a result of the women's actions.
There are numerous plot twists that make this movie really interesting. The movie is actually darkly funny at times, but it is very much a drama. A ridiculous romantic subplot is the only real weakness.
Brian Markinson delivers the best acting performance, ranging from comedic to chilling, as David Price, a serial killer with new information on the Eddie Como case that could get him a deal. Jacqueline Bisset is also quite good as one of the women, very convincing as she goes through a range of emotions. I thought most of the leading actors did a good job (though Roma Downey had a hard time hiding her Irish accent occasionally).
This movie had some violence, which was to be expected, and several tastefully (no private parts visible) filmed scenes where a woman is apparently nude after an attack, as well as scenes of women being attacked. The dialogue got somewhat graphic as the attacker's methods were described.
Overall, it was a better than average 'woman in jep' TV-movie.
