From the Back Cover

FBI Agent Jason Chandler (Patrick Muldoon, "Stigmata," "Starship Troopers") has devoted his life to enforcing the law. But on the trail of a series of mysterious murders surrounding some of society's deadliest serial killers, Agent Chandler is forced down a path where no one can be trusted. Only this time, sociopathic killers are being meticulously murdered one by one in grisly circumstances - and it's no picnic coincidence. Now, to search for justice, he must uncover the truth. And the life he must protect will be his own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lock the doors and close the windows! February 24, 2001
An excellent dark thriller. From the first creepy minutes voyeuring into the private behavior or a very weird guy, the off-beat, edgy tone is set. From there the plot takes off - serial killers are suddenly being knocked off. Who's killing the serial killers? An unlikely but effective pairing of detectives, Patrick Muldoon and Cathleen Moriarty are assigned to this weird case. They're not quite sure if they want to send a thank you note to the killer or pursue the leads. C. Thomas Howell sure isn't the old "Ponyboy" we knew and loved from "The Outsiders." He's dark, brooding, scary and works in a flower shop, of all things. It's surprising the blooms don't wilt. I wouldn't let him touch my bouquet. Tension mounts as the search for the killer continues amid a freezing, wintry backdrop that adds to the cold-blooded business of homicide investigation. Great mood setting. And the ending is a real shocker! Can you guess it kept me perched on the edge of the couch and anxious? I double-checked the door.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great flick, really cool! March 1, 2001
By A Customer
I rented this movie at Blockbuster and really enjoyed it. The main idea that there is a serial killer killing seriel killers is really neat and the film is quite well done. The cast is pretty good considering the budget (remember Fred Ward from MIAMI BLUES and REMO WILLIAMS?)

3.0 out of 5 stars RED TEAM 1, PATRICK MULDOON 0 January 19, 2004
While I don't feel this movie is as bad as others, I must admit there's a lot of plot holes and the direction is a little tepid considering the subject. Cathy Moriarty, who I think looks like a K-Mart Faye Dunaway, pouts and arches her eyes, but doesn't bring a lot of depth to her character, even when she confronts Muldoon with why the red team is doing what it does. I think Patrick Muldoon does fine as the agent, and continues to be the new stud of Direct to Video movies. Tim Thomerson and Fred Ward are commendable as well, and I didn't even recognize C. Thomas Howell as the bald serial killer.
This certainly won't set the standard for serial killer films, but it's entertaining.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst film ever October 10, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Without a doubt, this is the worst movie I've ever seen. Poorly acted, terrible script, it's not worth watching. It was so irritating, I had to turn the movie off before reaching the end. Don't waste your money or your time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Stupid May 26, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
You would think that someone who is writing a movie about serial killers and law enforcement agencies would spend some time researching the subject. Obviously, whoever wrote the script for this did not.
Anyone with even minor knowledge of police or military tactics would laugh at the antics of the "red" team of the movie's fictional government agency, who're supposed to be some sort of elite anti serial-killer organization. If a real officer or operative acted in the manner they did, they'd probably get themselves and their colleagues killed in their first encounter.
And what were they thinking casting Cathy Moriarty to play the female agent? She's ugly, and it's a good thing they didn't let her take off her clothes. My deepest sympathy goes out to Patrick Muldoon who had to suffer through two love scenes with that pig. At least they were short.
