Did You Know?

Goofs

The ME says the marks on the body came from a pistol whipping and identifies the gun as a 9mm. Gun frames for various calibers are the same, so a 9mm would leave identical marks as a 40 or 45 caliber gun from the same manufacturer. See more »

Hitchcockian Suspense!
14 August 2002 | by GodAmongUsSee all my reviews

We all pretty much know what to expect from these Movies of the Week, yet this one stands out as a nicely executed, taught suspense thriller. Some plot holes are there but are more then made up for by gritty, top notch performances by the ageless, amazing James Caan and the smoldering Jonathan Shaech.

The story itself presents a fascinating conundrum: A young homicide detective flees the big city with his wife in search of a better life. After making the move, the wife is brutally assaulted on the same night that the son of the local sheriff is killed. As the wife had previously alleged that this was the man that attacked her, the detective finds himself at the center of a small town conspiracy. The local cop and the big city detective are then forced to find the perpetrators together.

Kudos to the writer Miller for both his keen sense of suspense which always keeps us guessing and his on screen dialogue which absolutely crackles. Stay tuned for the bone crushing ending...

Overall, a fun thriller and a slick MOW suspenser...
