I now have this movie posted to my Youtube page at www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRCUQuJdQP4 for those who want to watch this movie without having to search through a flea market or video store (if they still exist?) to find it.
Personally, I thought this was a very suspenseful movie and while, like almost every "based on a true story" movie, it is not entirely accurate on the 1982 trials of Bruce Curtis and Scott Franz. I was very lucky to have found this movie at the end of a VHS tape from 2000, as decent TV movies are very hard to come by these days. Great acting overall, especially from Kenneth Welsh, who had a main role on the TV show Twin Peaks.
8/10. Highly recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of the crime fiction genre
