Editors Note
Note A psychopath is copying the crimes of renowned serial killers such as Son of Sam and the Boston Strangler, and the detective on the case turns to a forensic psychologist who specializes in the field. Unfortunately, the doctor has become a paranoid agoraphobic as the result of an earlier assault at the hands of the killer. A violent, bloody thriller.

Review ...[the movie] creates original characters...and makes them more important than the plot. We care, and that's the key... Hunter is in her element as the tough cop, creating...one of the most intriguing and three-dimensional characters of the year.
