“What am I... the lamb tied to the stake here?”
This film was lost in a sea of familiar looking crime thrillers films that came out during the 90’s after the success of Silence of the Lambs.
Although, the plot doesn’t feel original, it does have two great actresses anchoring the film in Sigourney Weaver and Holly Hunter. Weaver plays a professor who’s an expert on serial killers, that gets involved with a police investigation when a series of copycat killings occurs. Hunter plays one of the investigating officers.
It also stars Dermot Mulroney, Will Patton, William McNamara and Harry Connick Jr.
There’s a nice chemistry between Weaver, Hunter and Mulroney which helps the film and Connick Jr. performance is quite memorable. Too bad that the resolution of the film seems contrived and it features one of the most random character’s death onscreen.
