A news reporter trying to prove a a series of recent murders were the work of a serial killer is involved in a car crash and loses her memory. She begins to suspect that her own husband may be the murderer, and tries to piece together the events of the crash that she has forgotten. Thriller, starring Barbie Castro and Casper Van Dien.
A journalist wife (Barbie Castro) thinks her husband (Casper Van Dien) is a serial killer in this slow-moving and uneventful mystery thriller. Suffering amnesia after a car accident, Castro becomes convinced that attorney Van Dien is the Florida psycho she was investigating prior to the crash. Some menacing visuals and music, not to mention Van Dien's exaggeratedly suspicious behaviour, suggest she's right, but it takes an age to reach the "is he or isn't he?" central plot point. Ultimately, the film spends far too long on the details of Castro's memory loss and the dulll re-establishing of her marital relationship, before underplaying the potentially juiciest part of the narrative. Unimpressive twists and a flat climax follow, as writer/director Bernard Salzman hamstrings himself trying to do something unexpected with such a well-trodden theme.
