This film was not given a fair shake with theatre distribution. Patrick Swayze's performance was very convincing as an innocent man released from prison after serving a long sentence, when new evidence proved the wrong man was convicted. He appeared pale, as you would expect of a person spending so much time locked behind bars. Due to a chain of events beyond his control, he is stalked by a killer, one of several women who had been writing to him while he was in prison. Not having a clue as to who is trying to kill him, a suspenseful pursuit ensues. During filming of a scene where he is fleeing on horseback, his horse bolted and Swayze struck a tree, suffering severe injuries. Trooper that he is, he managed to finish the film (it is noticeable how much pain he is in during the process), but with great effort. Since he is one of the few stars who always felt he should do his own stunt work, he was nearly fatally injured.
This film kept me in suspense to the very end. I give it your top rating.

I guess TAPES FROM A KILLER Didn't have the selling point? Anyway, what ever happened to Patrick Swayze? After RED DAWN and DIRTY DANCING, seemed like he had everything going for him. His performance in this lukewarm thriller isn't bad, but it's not inspired, either. He does some really stupid things, and one can't help but wonder why the screenplay made him so gullible and thoughtless. He's surrounded by four women he wrote to while on Death Row, and then after given a new trial, he's released. Problem is while in prison, the nasty head guard, played with relish by Michael Bowen, switched the tapes he was sending and all four women found out he was leading all of them on. One of them has vowed revenge and wants him back on death row. The script playfully points the finger at one of the ladies, played by Gia Carides. But is she guilty? Carides and Kim Meyer as the southern belle Gloria outact Swayze, and Roger E. Moseley as Horton, the friendly guard and Bruce McGill as the head FBI agent lend capable support. It's not a surprising movie, but it holds your interest.

I had never seen this movie ever and I a big fan of Patrick Swayze. I saw this movie on Amazon and decided to get it. This movie is great. Its full of suspense from one minute to the next you wonder who did it. This movie is about Patrick being prison for a murder that he claims he didn't commit. He is on death row, has a best selling book that he wrote in prison and corresponds with four woman. He doesn't write letters, but he talks on tapes to these women and they do the same back. Well a couple prison guards have to listen to these tapes before they get sent or are given to Patrick. So they get upset and decide to play prank and switch two of the tapes. Now Patrick doesn't know of the switch until he receives a tape that just doesn't sound good at all. After receiving a couple more of the same tapes, he realizes at one of the guards switched some. He doesn't which one of these ladies is doing it and he worries over it. He goes to court and is set free. This woman stocks him, she leaves tapes for him to listen to, breaks into his apartment and steals all the other tapes from the other women. He visits all the women and tell each one of them that he was corresponding with others. He looks to see if he can find the switched tapes and he can't. Then things go bad to worse for him because these women start turning up dead. Even his attorney get murdered. The woman that did this was very hurt by the tape that she received and wanted him to go back to prison. So she was hoping that the police would pin the murders on him. This is a awesome movie. Its good enough for someone to get the movie to find out for themselves which lady it was.

I'm the hugest Patrick Swayze fan, yes I know you've heard that before. Patrick was so believable in this movie, I forgot about Ghost,
and Dirty Dancing (not for long though). This was movie gave Patrick elbow room to stretch his acting abilities that showed us more than a hunky model/dance. He just happened to be a hunky/model who is an actor.

I don't know why others have not liked this movie, I thought it was great. It was suspenseful and you don't know if he really did kill his wife and is now killing his "girlfriends" who he was corresponding with by audio tape while in prison, or if one of the women is trying to set him up out of anger. The prison guard was also well played. I really got into this movie, and I think it deserves a chance, so don't be discouraged by reading other reviews that are less than complimentary.

Back when I was a freshman in highschool, part of this movie was being filmed right up the street from me. A couple of the crew members had gone into my grandparents' old antique store, and told my family about it. I got to go with my mom and brother to go see where it was being filmed. We didn't get to meet Patrick, which was unfortunate, but got to be on the side of the road where he was filming a scene on a bus, and hang out for a couple of hours. We even got to meet his stunt man from Roadhouse. That was one of the coolest moments. We just didn't know that it was only a tv movie. We watched it when it came on, and it was pretty cool. It was the scene on the bridge that was filmed by my house, and when he was on a bus with this one lady whose name I can't remember, but she was also in My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
