It's 9:00 p.m. In only two hours, the life of convicted killer Raymond Graham (Jeff Fahey, Wyatt Earp) will end by lethal injection in the prison's deathchamber. With chilling realism, this drama probes the inner life of a troubled murderer, as his apathy turns into terror as the final moments of his life slip by.Written by
The set where the execution occurs is an exact replica of the death chamber in Texas where lethal injection was first used three years earlier. The external jail scenes are from a real working prison in Canada. See more »
A death row inmate is hoping for a last-minute pardon by the governor, and is making amends with everyone he's known, in case it doesn't come through. This film is quite flawed: The picture has a soap-opera feel to it, the audio is below-par, and cameo performances are not what you'd expect from the stellar cast. Still, there's much to enjoy here, besides the obvious fact that this film is a curio for seeing Morgan Freeman and Jeff Fahey in such early roles. Laurie Metcalf (of Roseanne fame) gives a rather impressive/heartfelt performance ala Raymond's sister, as did the reporter who sets out to plead for Graham's life. Overall, an unforgettable film, worth-watching for Metcalf's performance alone, in my book.
