JUST WHO'S THE PSYCHOPATH?

"Two veterans from TWIN PEAKS star in this uniquely plotted thriller. Madchen Amick stars as attorney Rachel McGuire, who is tracking a serial killer. One of the victims was her best friend and roommate. The killer murders the women (who are all law students) and presents them in the tub with a bouquet of flowers. We all know the culprit early on---photographer Chris Mulkey. A subplot involves college chemistry professor Bruce Dinsmore, who is having an affair with his undergraduate assistant. In presenting his thesis for tenure, he leaves out her participation so she blackmails him. Lo and behold, this professor is selected for jury duty for Mulkey's trial, and he has an agenda of his own. He convinces the jurors that Mulkey is innocent, so he can kill his lover and frame him for it.
How Amchik and associates kill two birds with one stone makes for an interesting non-derivative thriller.
Amick and Mulkey do good jobs, but Dinsmore (who looks a lot like a blond Hugh Grant) isn't up to the role. However, a very different thriller."

"I am a huge fan of Mädchen Amick, so I loved seeing her in the movie,
Plus the ending is VERY clever,
Its an old film so there are no special features on the DVD"
