Storyline

Police detective Bruning investigates the murder of model Vivian Jamison in rich businessman husband James' home. He sees no reason to doubts the evidence pointing at her latest lover, neighboring troubled, fatherless high-school teenager Michael Nowlin, who soon makes a run for it but is caught. The knave convinces his mother Sandra Nowlin of his innocence, but the female 'top lawyer' she hires is no real help. Meanwhile the ex-con liquor shop clerk who could provide Michael with an alibi is murdered. Written by KGF Vissers

Go Upstairs for this Killer ***1/2
27 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very good film with a major surprise twist describes "A Killer Upstairs."

Tracy Nelson, unfortunately, is not very believable as the mother. You see absolutely no emotion shown. True, she believes that her emotionally disturbed son is innocent of murder, but at least she should act the part out at least by showing she is distraught.

Instead, she goes vigilante and gets lucky.

What saves this film is the surprise ending. The twist that occurs really makes sense when you think of it.

An old Bruce Boxleitner stars as a know-it-all detective. At least, he admits how wrong he was at the end.

Don't always lie for your children. A time will come when the police will not believe you.
