User Reviews

Good quality Australian mystery
17 November 1998 | by Russ1681See all my reviews

Rebecca Gibney seems perfect in her role as Jane Halifax. This film, the latest in the series, follows Halifax as she attempts to make some sense out of a killer who murders young model hopefuls in brutal and bizarre fashions. Americans will miss out on this very watchable film, as it was shown in Australia only.
