Storyline

A serial killer, never caught, leaves clues and messages signed 'BSP' after quickly murdering each man but torturing his girl to death. His last case is an exception, the detective in charge finds his wife murdered while has pre-teen daughter had to watch. Thirty years later, she's still obsessed by the case, which drove her dad insane, and a police detective herself. When the whole cycle starts again, she gets convinced it's not BSP but an ambitious copy-cat, but he certainly outsmarts her every time. He also makes clear she's to be his final kill. Meanwhile she alienates even colleagues with her arrogance and obsession, finally to be suspended as the FBI takes over. Written by KGF Vissers

Example of output from Screenplay Software?
27 September 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Such software has existed for quite some time, believe it or not. That's why we see the same 'suspense' scenes over & over again (a killer attacks, but the hero is just having a DREAM SEQUENCE! the hero chases the killer into a forest but gets struck from behind {you'd think the cameraman would say something} etc.) and hear the same clichéd lines repeated that we've heard before in these tiresome retreads. Matt Damon calls such dialogue 'derivative'.

In LOF, the acting is respectable, especially by our lead, Teri Polo. I confess I tuned in to it since the Canadian Football game I was watching was dreadful and LOF was a better time-waster. However, the premise--that a clever 'serial killer' can outfox detectives while leaving them taunting clues and also read their every move in advance--is only slightly less ridiculous than a film about sharks stalking humans (well, that worked the first time!). It does, however, show how screenplay-software can turn out a barebones script for a TV movie: I can just see the 'writer' flipping through the menus "Flashback Scenes" "Arguments with Police Boss" "Fun Scenes to Flesh out Hero" "Eerie Searches for Clues" etc.

You could produce a decent 'B' suspense flick with a little imagination: a few bizarre characters; some nifty dialogue that moves the plot along, but says things in a new way; or a hero that is complex but compelling (Dr House, Sherlock Holmes, Monk). I'm afraid the Cast here just isn't given too much to work with. Contrast an old sleeper such as 'Plain Clothes'.

6/10 generous rating just for being more fun than a CFL game in which one QB couldn't pass the salt..
