Our Score
This thriller is an effective if somewhat extravagant excursion into The Hand That Rocks the Cradle territory, except this time it's a disturbed mum rather than a nanny. Marcy Walker plays a woman institutionalised after murdering her child's adoptive mother, the wife of Leigh J McCloskey. The youngster also died in the attack, but Walker refuses to believe that, and when she escapes she immediately tracks down McCloskey, who now has a new wife (Genie Francis) and son (Jacob Loyst). The plot defies logic as Walker evades the police with ease and actually takes up residence, undetected, in McCloskey's home, à la Gary Busey in Hider in the House, but director William Graham manages to inject a few shocks along the way.
