Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Model-turned-actress Joan Severance has tended to find herself typecast in erotic thrillers such as Lake Consequence and Red Shoe Diaries II, but here she gets the chance to do something other than just disrobe in this effective police thriller. She and Anthony John Denison play detectives on the trail of a serial killer. The prime suspect is John Allen Nelson, son of a wealthy politician, but the investigation gets complicated when Severance falls for the dangerous charmer. It went straight to video here, but director Donna Deitch works hard to keep viewers guessing and is rewarded with convincing performances from the leads.
