woman with named Cayce Bridges (Ally
Sheedy) psychic abilities helps the
police by track down some killers but
suddenly she discovers a murderer whom is
called the Shadow Man (Pruitt Taylor
Vince) that has psychic abilities too who
wants to share the fear of his victims
While she tries to help two detectives
named Webber (Stan Shaw) and William Wu
(Keone Young) try to get this guy while
he plans to go on a killing spree it's
too late as he knows she's trying to hunt
him down so he plays a cat and mouse game
He controls her to stay in the state and
never leave her community as she thinks
that he is coming for her but instead
kills one of her friends and tells her he
will continue to kill if she disobeys
Her new boyfriend who's a fire marshall
named Jack Hays (Michael O'Keefe) tries
to help Cayce out. Yet he could be put in
hazards as well so she must try to find
some way to trick this cold blooded
killer before Jack is next.
A great beginning with Cayce Bridges acting like a basket case
having a hard time with her words and
panicking when she tried to explain what
a killer is doing during the beginning
which looked impressive.
There's also a nice calming discussion with her and her psychic abilities
towards William Tarr and William Wu as detectives in which the scene looked good on them being stubborn at first with her
There's a nice setting with the three of
them at an abandoned house and her
warning them as well as all of them
looking around inside and suddenly bang
when they turn on the light an old lady
is hung as this scene can really can
make you jump.
We have a good shot on Cayce looking nervous staring across the street
with Shadow Man in a
distance well communicating to her mind.
A humouress moment with Cayce towards Jack Hays desperately
asking him to track down a killer in the
middle of the street which looked quite
There's terrific intense moments on Cayce when she is dragged out of
the airport while we spot good shots of a
camera approaching Jessica Moreau and
then hands strangling her in her car with
her struggling along with a plastic bag
wrapped around her head which almost
reminds me of a murder scene in Black
Christmas which is a disturbing
murder on someone suffering to death.
There's a good presence with Jack greeting Cayce with breakfast
with her having a mopey expression on her
We've got a great discussion between Jack and Cayce when he tries to tell
her not to let this killer control him
and how to stop him.
There's a good effect on Cayce with Jack in a vehicle trying
to detect where this killer is and
struggling to try and catch him before
it's too late which looked very
suspenseful and watchable.
We have a good shot on a vehicle
following another one with Cayce telling Jack that the killer
is behind them which is spine chilling.
There's a good shot on Shadow Man in
a carnival walking near Jack as you wonder if he will try to kill him.
The best moment of all is with Cayce in a mirror maze and spotting Shadow Man in the mirrors with her
smashing them to try and get to him.
A great shot on Shadow Man jumping
out of a window and landing on a seat of
a ferris wheel as well as Cayce doing the same thing along with a perfect
struggle between the two of them.
Bottom line is that this is a great crime
mystery horror which at first I wondered
if this was actually a horror but a
psychic killer who doesn't reveal himself
and kills when a psychic senses it is
enough to convince that it's that kind of
a genre too.
We have a great performance and alot of
blue lighting effects to when the
killings start to occur making this
really psych you out big time. There's the odd pre-Scream
with the phone call as well as other
mysterious and suspenseful elements that
was in other similar films too. However,
this film dstands on it's own like those
other films too. Just imagine that the killer controls
where you're going and making you do
stuff else he will kill and continue to
do so will really drive you nuts and act
like a basket case.
The acting is very
well done as we have the lead actress
Ally Sheedy (Cayce Bridges) playing the psychic who
proves that she can be very versatile
with her work by first acting distrubed
and intense to someone calm and patient. Does well when she has
anxiety in her at an outing almost losing
She performed wonderfully and suspensefully in a scene when
she gets up from her table and stabs the
table with a knife. Terrific panicking reaction on her towards two onscreen characters in a plane reacting like she's crazy when she
demands them to get her off the plane due
to a possible attempted murder. Was great falling to the
ground in devastation demanding her
killer why he killed her friend. We
have a great menacing action by her
when she whacks someone with a
flashlight. She was a true character actress indeed.
Lauren Hutton (Jessica Moreau) really deserved a gold
star playing her sympathetic friend in
the film as she shows nice concerned
emotions and a great attitude. She proved
that she really studied her character
Michael O'Keefe (Jack Hays) played a great role
in the film as a fireman and a nice guy
next door type of appeal to him as he
shows alot of great charm and enthusiasm
to his part.
Stan Shaw (Detective Webber) really brought out his
tough and stubborn attitude as a
detective and incredibly energetic for
when emergencies happen in the film. He
had the right looks for his role looking
like a believebale tough as nails
Taylor Vince (Shadow Man) only appears towards
close to the end of the film but was
terrific with his voice over's for the
whole story since he had a great dark and
coldness to his speaking which sounds
realistically mysterious and scary. In a quarter of the story, does well acting cowardly trying to run
away from someone.
is the compoer for this film. We have
some good cold sounds with some sharp
violing playing along with the odd cold
piano sounding (Especially for when a
couple detectives try to search a quiet
house) for the mysterious parts and the
odd thumps too.
Shadow man: It's
okay to be scared Cayce... you should
Shadow man: [after
Casey sees him kill a woman] She was
wonderful, Casey... and so were you.
[writes fear in blood on the wall]
Cayce Bridges: [watching
through the minds of the shadow man]
In the fridge there's left over pizza and
a cup... some kind of kid's cup...
Detective Webber: [uneasy]
Cayce Bridges: In the living room
there toys scattered over the floor...
there's a baseball in one of those
display thing's on the coffee table...
Detective Webber: [scared
cutting her off] Can you see a TV?
Cayce Bridges: Yeah.
Detective Webber: With a trophy...
a football trophy?
Cayce Bridges: Yeah.
Detective Webber: [in full
realization] He's in my house... the
son of a bitch is in my house. The kids
will be home any minute.
Cayce Bridges: You
have to stop the Goddamned plane,
somebody is about to be killed!
Cayce Bridges: Let
me off this plane NOW or I will scream
like this ALL THE WAY TO NEW YORK!
Shadow man: [nervous]
Casey... what are you doing?
Cayce Bridges: [calm, focused]
You knew we were following you tonight...
not because you could read my thoughts...
but because you could read Jack's...
Well, Jack ain't here any more...
[smacks him with a large torch]
Shadow man: I
wouldn't have hurt you for anything! Now
I'm going to hurt you worst of all...
