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.

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.

Seen this movie on Showtime late at night long time ago and finally found it on Amazon and
bought it used.
This is my favorite type of movie where a killer is the "good" guy and takes out bad guys and you
have red team taking out serial killers it's a fun little B movie if you like these type of movies.

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?)

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.
