Pathetic, by-the-numbers, cliche-ridden and mindless thriller about a psychic detective who discovers the serial killer she is helping to pursue is himself a psychic.
The movie offers nothing new and has an exceptionally poor, miscast performance by Ally Sheedy and one of the most pathetically docile villains of all time, one who becomes a snivelling wimp when he clumsily loses his murder weapon (in this instance, a dagger).
A TV movie of the week and nothing more.
4/10
