Briefly released to theatres in 1992, "Liar's Edge" is a seedy thriller that takes place in Niagara Falls, Canada. The story involves a young boy, Mark (handsome Nicholas Shields), who has had emotional problems and suicidal tendencies ever since his stuntman dad went over The Falls in a barrel and was decapitated. He lives in a trailer park with his mom Heather (sexy Shannon Tweed), who is engaged to shady truck driver Gary (David Keith). Mark has problems as it is - he has a fish tank in his bedroom where he keeps severed doll heads in - but things get more complicated for him when he spies a mystery woman near the trailer park. Even worse, Gary's lecherous brother Dave (Joseph Bottoms), arrives in town and moves into the already cramped quarters, where he aggravates Heather and attempts to seduce wide-eyed Mark. Throw in a stabbing in the tunnels under The Falls (which Mark witnesses), a stash of stolen money, a chase inside a darkened wax museum and a perverse puppet (!), and you have a bizarre yet very entertaining movie.

I agree with the review titled "Underrated and worth checking out". I saw it years ago and felt I'd seen a side of Niagara Falls never before imagined (I live in Western New York and have been to the Falls many times). The film has a unique and dark atmosphere.

Writer/director Ron Oliver's thriller doesn't break any new ground but it's diverting if ultimately forgetable entertainment. Shannon Tweed stars as the mother of a 16 year old boy who has been traumatised by the accidental death of his father, a stuntman who failed to survive a jump over Niagara Falls. Oliver gives us a witty editing cut from the boy screaming to a car alarm, which clues you that this isn't going to be a deep psychological drama. I also liked a psychiatrist's comment to Tweed's concern over her son being institutionalised - "We've paved over the snake pits"- and one scene where it is the psychiatrist who rests on a couch while the boy talks. Since we are told that the father was beheaded in the fall, that may explain the son's collection of doll's heads which he keeps in a fish tank. When truckie David Keith marries Tweed, their wedding cake amusingly made in the shape of a truck, and then Joseph Bottoms appears as Keith's brother, the signs indicate more trouble is ahead, especially since Keith sports a ponytail and Bottoms an earring. The boy begins to have visions of a woman in a red car, and you can bet that she leads him back to the Falls. As the boy Nicholas Shields is all big eyes, but his sheepishness in reaction to Bottoms' attempt at seduction is funny, and Oliver times our sight of Bottoms in his face pack superbly. Oliver encourages Bottoms, Kathleen Robertson as a girl who befriends Shields, and Christopher Plummer doing a parody of Peter Falk's detective, to overplay, and he even gets a reasonable performance out of Tweed, who for once isn't used as a sexpot. She has a scene where Bottoms torments her with a duck glove puppet that is more comic than serious.Read more ›
