Storyline

The ambitious young Ina Littmann is investigative journalist for the TV talk show "Eye in Eye". Her current subject is Henry Kupfer, who wrote a bestseller about a psychopathic killer after he was 8 years in prison for manslaughter himself. As an entry for the show Ina plans to use a current series of brutal murders among prostitutes. When Ina meets Kupfer, she is despised and fascinated at the same time. Soon she's convinced that Kupfer not only writes about murders, but commits them himself. She smells a smash hit and prepares to prove him guilty on the show...

Good acting, bad script
7 August 1999 | by Sebbi-2See all my reviews

The acting for this movie is top notch, but unfortunately the script can't quite keep up. So what you end up with is a film that's certainly better than average, but it's not as good as the movies that it is inspired by - first and foremost "The Silence Of The Lambs".
