A solid adapation of Mary Higgins Clark's bestseller
1 September 2002 | by Murrayjohn2See all my reviews

A Cry In The Night is a solid adaptation of Mary Higgins Clark's bestseller. Robin Spry does a good job with the screenplay and direction.Carol Higgins Clark(M.H.'s daughter!) is very good as Jenny and so is Annie Girardot as Reine.The best though,is Perry King with his thoroughly chilling performance as the increasingly deranged Erich in this suspense tour-de-force. 8 out of 10.
