Bea (Natalie Bail), a pretty ballerina, is killed in a cheap motel room - by her boyfriend Brad Mayfield (Kurt Angle), but nobody knows that yet, and likewise nobody knows Mayfield's actually a dangerous psychopath, but one who's very good at playing cat-and-mouse. His first action after the murder is to disguise himself as a police officer, show up at Bea and stripper Carol's (Jenna Morasca) apartment to confiscate her address book - not so much to erradicate all evidence of his involvement with her but ... well, it helps playing cat-and-mouse, doesn't it?

Detective Burk (Eric Wright) is hot on the case, and soon has a lead to the killer (at one instant he even IDs him at Bea's wake but of course has no proof to hold him), but Mayfield's always one step ahead - which is exactly what he needs to be to properly play his game. So Mayfield happily kills a politician (Larry Kozlowski) Bea has been involved with and one of his co-workers (Vicki Roberts), just to have a place to hide out for a few days ...

Burk in the meanwhile figures Carol is the key to the mystery, and after visiting her at one of her stripshows, the two even become sexually involved. But of course, Burk is married and has a special needs child, so their relationship can't last. So it's not long before Carol allows herself to be picked up at a bar and invited on a yacht - by none other than Mayfield of course.Then he visits Burk's wife and daughter disguised as a clown, hospitalizes the wife and kidnaps the daughter ... and suddenly the case has become very personal for Burk ...


A low budget thriller that shows just what can be done on limited funds if the script is well-written and features fleshed-out characters and the direction stays away from spectacle in favour of decent storytelling and concentrates of mounting up tension and suspense.

That said, the film is not without its flaws, it fails to deliver the killer's motives and reasoning (which is saved by a solid performance by Kurt Angle though), and a few too many plottwists are actually pulled out of the hat - but the way the story is told and the tension is built make more than up for it and see to it that the whole thing remains totally enjoyable throughout.
