Trivia

The finale was filmed at the Balinese Room located at Seawall Boulevard @ 21st Street; sadly, the entire structure was destroyed September 13, 2008 by Hurricane Ike. A few scenes were filmed underneath the Balinese Room (including the Murdoch's Pier and Ocean Grill (later the original Hooters Galveston) where the Flagship Hotel is seen in the background - the aftermath of Hurricane Ike in 2008 which devastated the Balinese Room and Hooters Galveston resulted in the redevelopment of the Flagship Hotel into the Galveston Pleasure Pier now owned by Landry's Restaurants. A new Hooters was opened off 61st Street in 2017, replacing the former destroyed by Hurricane Ike. See more »

Before "Silence of the Lambs" and "Seven. . ."
2 July 2000 | by LeeandkateSee all my reviews

. . . this what the serial killer movie looked like. The plot is leaky to say the least: someone would have picked up on the fact that the murders only occur when the local team plays, and when a certain player scores. The fact that he kills with a hook would get out, and someone would immediately remember a disaffected loner with a hook for a hand. FBI Behavioural Sciences would solve this in a day.

The director seems immensely impressed with the fact he's filming in Texas, far from the gaze of Studio execs, and packs in endless loving aerial vistas. His visual style is stuck in TV Movie Lite, and along with the soundtrack could have originated from anytime since 1972. Only the clothes and hairstyles suggest its 80's dating, and even those seem stuck in a timewarp from 1985 rather than 1989.

Roy Scheider looks embarrassed, Karen Young flashes her breasts in the first 10 minutes. Subplots about Scheider's character's father's links to organised crime and tension with his girlfriend's mother (who he dated in High School) detract from the story and go unresolved. One face to watch out for: the blonde victim in the Hall of Mirrors is played by Renee O'Connor, Xena's sidekick Gabrielle. I only watched the rest of the film because I thought I recognised her face and wanted to check the credits!
