A Good Thriller Having a Few Clichés
25 February 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Dr. Julianne Kaiser (Joan Van Ark) is a psychiatrist, who has some clients and hosts a talk show in the radio. She has a daughter and is divorcing from her husband Max (Barry Flatman). She has a brother, Lloyd Carson (Chris Sarandon), who is a constructor. Julliane has a trauma: twenty-five years ago, when she was a teenager, her parents were killed and she accused Parmenter (Geoffrey Lewis), a man who lived in a small room in the back of her house. He was condemned to twenty-five years in prison, but he always claimed he was innocent. When Parmenter is released, he looks for revenge against Julianne. This movie is a good thriller, having a few clichés. Its greatest problem is the running time, too long for the plot. But hooks the attention until the end of the story. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): `Quando a Morte Chama' (`When Death Calls')
