Poor acting, a predictable plot and hackneyed dialogue make this a bad movie.
18 July 2001 | by pjedickeSee all my reviews

First, the plot. (No spoiler.) A radio call-in show host has repressed the memory of her parents' murder, and things get scary when the man, convicted of the murder by her testimony, gets out of prison 25 years later.

I think this is an awful movie. The "thriller" ending won't surprise you, and the plot twists are silly on top of being predictable. The acting is below average, except for Chris Sarandon, and his role is not very challenging. Joan Van Ark is on the screen for almost every shot, and I'm sorry to say that she just can not carry the movie. I watched it through to the end only because she's very attractive and has great legs. And the director uses every contrived chance to show off her legs.
