Storyline

The super-fool Jim, a West Coast stockbroker, has newly separated from his wife, Gail. He's more than ready to be suckered when shapely mall sylph Ellie slips him a note reading "Save me." She angers Jim with woeful reports of abuse at the hands of her live-in lover, psychiatrist Oliver. Soon, a car chases Jim and shots are fired at him. Jim is meant to believe Moran is the attacker. Yeah, right. After Moran is killed by an unseen someone with Jim's gun, our hero is further bamboozled by foreign-accented phone calls that threaten to tell the cops. Jim can't imagine who this interloper could be, though a few scenes earlier his reptilian office nemesis Robbins had declared for the umpteenth time his intent to nail Jim and get Ellie all to himself.

A Well-Made Erotic Thriller
6 August 2007 | by JUBriscoeSee all my reviews

'Save Me' is a well-made psycho-sexual drama typical of the erotic thrillers made in the 90s. The film stars Harry Hamlin as Jim Stevens, a stockbroker whose life is falling apart when his wife's (Olivia Hussey) infidelity drives him into a marital separation he does not want. Stevens' life is also being made miserable by an inept and power-driven boss (Steven Railsback) whose illegal dealings threaten his job.

When by chance he meets Ellie (Lysette Anthony) his whole life changes, but as you will see, not necessarily for the better. He becomes obsessed with her, and she with him, but soon their sexual rendezvous become known to the other man in her life, Oliver (Michael Ironside), a psychiatrist with whom she is living.

The plot thickens when Oliver threatens Stevens and he becomes the target of assaults and attempts on his life by an unknown assailant. The plot twists and turns into a suspenseful surprise ending, and Stevens learns the bitter truth: an English rose of such unequaled beauty and charm has many thorns.

This film is characteristic of many 'B-titles' that have made the rounds on the cable circuit, only this one is also available in a unrated version that you won't likely see unless you rent it. There are some casting shortfalls not unlike 'B-titles' but the story itself is plausible and a good showcase for stunning Lysette Anthony, who easily mesmerizes the viewer into noticing little else in every scene she's in.
