If you love burning trees you'll like this rather flat thriller. The actual story never reaches boiling point. Roughly 20% of the film is awash with typical early 70's TV background music in the vein of the Rockford Files. It's certainly an improvement on the dialogue.

There's a twist at the end which is not that well disguised. Peter Lawford does silently menacing in the manner of an avuncular uncle who's peeved that he's mislaid his glasses. Anthony Franciosa is reasonably convincing as a gleeful psychopath. Everyone else is sort of there.
