This movie is a 10!!!
29 June 2000 | by skye_54See all my reviews

Terror in the Shadows has everything: Daytime soap stars, plot twists, and the element of surprise. The performance given by the cast is phenomenal and the chemistry between the actors makes it really believable. Marcy Walker gives a stellar performance in the role of Christine/Rebecca. She is able to turn the character into a three-dimensional person, which makes the story compelling and terrifying. Genie Francis and Victoria Wyndham also play their roles to perfection creating an on-screen relationship that has the viewer glued to their seat. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys watching daytime soaps or just loves a good horror flick...
