Editorial Reviews

Suspense novelist, William Rhodes (Ryan Alosio) is suffering from a case of writer's block. When William's neighbor is murdered just feet away from his own boat, he finds himself being questioned by the police. William become a suspect when Detective Sanchez (Ray Clemente Rodriquez) points out that the murder was committed exactly like one of the murders in William's first novel. When William takes a trip to see his literary agent, Toni (Wendy Schenker), he is introduced to her assistant Gina (Karen Mistal), whom he instantly believes is the girl of his dreams. When William meets with Toni, she puts on the pressure for him to deliver his new book and asks him to contact Professor Mort Sang (Mickey Rooney), a leading criminologist, in search of material to inspire him. During William's meeting with the professor they discuss the profile of a serial killer and it becomes apparent that the character from William's first novel, and the killer described by Professor Sang are one and the same. Meanwhile, the killer, Anthony Chambers (Joe Dorsey), has moved in next to William. While William concentrates on writing his book and romancing Gina, Chambers is carefully plotting his next move. The climax builds when Chambers abducts Gina and sets sail on the ocean, leading William into a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

Format: DVD
We have one heroic mystery writer (played by Ryan Alosio from "Darkwolf") who has just come off a big best seller called "Killing Midnight." (Duh). There's been a murder committed right next to the boat where he lives. This murder parallels a killing in his novel. But, guess what? The script doesn't take this premise anywhere further. Instead, we meet Alosio's bitchy agent and her sexy if demure assistant. Seems the writer is having writer's block, so he inexplicably visits a retired PI and professor (Mickey Rooney, in a laughable performance, but not ineffective) to see if this guy can give him some hints on serial killings. Next we meet a supposedly mute gentleman who is going to move his boat next to Alosio. This character is played by Joe A. Dorsey, an actor I've never heard of or seen before, and considering his hammy histrionics in this one, I doubt if we'll see or hear from him again. Suffice to say, the new neighbor is a serial killer first mentioned by Rooney, and he is a true looney with a long grey ponytail which he unhooks prior to his murders. His murder of Rooney is peculiarly sadistic, and not really necessary.
The movie is long on atmosphere and short on suspense, and not rationally developed. Alosio has a lot of potential; he has a sincerity and rugged masculinity that was more evidenced in Dark Wolf, and only hinted at in this one. Karen Mistal as the heroine is more like a Barbie character, and seems as deep as a petri dish.
Not a total washout, but certainly a rent option more than purchase.

Format: VHS Tape
After a neighbour of author William Rhodes (Ryan Alosio) in the San Pedro (Los Angeles) Harbor marina where they live is murdered by a bizarre method similar to that suffered by a victim in a best-selling first novel by Rhodes, a homicide detective attempts to link him with the crime as a suspect. Rhodes, whose home is a boat named "Writer's Block", a condition that he has developed while working upon his second novel, is open to a suggestion by his agent that he meet with a friend of hers, former private investigator and current professor of criminology Mort Sang (Mickey Rooney), in an effort to raise the barriers to his creative impulses, and he visits Sang, at which time the two discuss serial killers with the professor, an authority upon the grisly subject, informing the young author that his offer of assistance to the FBI was summarily refused. This FBI connection is not again referred to in this somewhat continuity resistant work (despite the successful novel "Killing Midnight" by Rhodes that depicts a serial murderer who eludes the Bureau for ten years) while William seeks fresh vitality with a romance he begins with Gina (Karen Mistal), his agent's personal assistant. The pace of the film thereby slows, but it hardly seems important as a viewer enjoys a colourful Christmas boat parade, while the amourous activity of the lovers brings about a temporary shift in the narrative's mood, although a purportedly mute and mysterious individual named Anthony Chambers (Joe Dorsey) moves into a nearby slip, subsequently luring with apparent evil intent the strangely reappearing Professor Sang aboard his vessel with offerings of whiskey, the criminologist unaccountably clad in a Santa Claus suit.Read more ›
