Review

Our Score
In this predictable but highly watchable crime drama, CSI: Miami's Eva La Rue delivers a sympathetic performance as a cop trying to solve the grisly killing of her heavily pregnant sister. Yet while the investigative puzzle fits together far too easily, it's still surprisingly compelling waiting for the obvious culprit to get caught. Part of this is down to the disturbing nature of the murder and its twisted aftermath, which collectively give the film a harder and more emotive edge than your usual made-for-TV fare. A sprightly pace and a suitably unhinged turn from Gina Chiarelli add further interest to the join-the-dots plotline, leading to a tense though implausible climax.

Summary

A cop investigates the disappearance of her pregnant sister, whose body is eventually discovered, having given birth. She discovers the killer is her brother-in-law's deranged lover, and faces a desperate race to find out where she is hiding the newborn child. Thriller, starring Eva La Rue, Adam Harrington, Gina Chiarelli and Adrian Holmes.
