Cop tracks prostitute-mutilating serial killer in this substandard thriller.
20 May 2003 | by capkronosSee all my reviews

Francisco Quinn (son of Anthony) is completely uninteresting as a detective who seeks help from incarcerated serial killer Brad Dourif to get his hands on another psycho who's been killing prostitutes. When released to video (in 1992 under the title DEAD CERTAIN), this got labeled as a SILENCE OF THE LAMB rip-off, but it was actually made first.

Too bad the script is dull, the acting is uneven and the scripter makes the mistake of giving us a "hero" who's an unsympathetic, heavy-drinking creep with a four-letter vocabulary who screws hookers and takes his young son to a strip club in the middle of a custody battle with his ex-wife (Karen Russell). The loud and grating jazz music score by Charlie Mole doesn't help either.

Score: 3 out of 10
