I had great expectations for this movie...a riveting based-on-a-true-story, with excellent acting and a fair amount of drama.
But 'Deadly Web' really seems more like a bad TV sitcom, only longer. The acting is painful to watch, from Gigi Rice as the sickeningly sweet Terri, to her extremely annoying smart-mouthed son (who's trying too hard to be cute and fails to get any sympathy from the viewers), to the typical all around bad guy Dr. Stanton (played by John Wesley Shipp). On top of that we have to contend with a script that is so lame it can make you laugh so hard you cry and some pseudo thriller-cum-action scenes (especially towards the end) that miss the mark by a mile.
Don't get caught in the 'Deadly Web', unless your Internet server is down, your boy/girlfriend has left town, and there's nothing in the refrigerator. Then again, it might be easier to just stare at the ceiling for one and a half hours.
