Her brother Kurt watches from the closet. Angie attacks him, then turns her anger inward and attempts suicide. Detective Purdue investigates the crime scene.

Intriguing psychological thriller
7 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This was a really smart indie thriller. Kept my interest throughout with many faceted characters revealing more and more apparently contradictory events in their collective pasts. Well cast with great ensemble interplay. DRESSED TO KILL set in the Pacific Northwest! The look of it was obviously well thought out and thematically consistent. Hard to do in the low budget indie world. Wonder what else this Oas guy's got in store for us. When character drives plot so effectively one has to wonder if he can top this intelligent adult-themed work. One has to hope he'll keep it up. M. Night watch out, Oas is gaining on you. In this film you never know what you know until it's too late! The switch overs just keep on coming. Every word and action counts.
