The Mean Season [Blu-ray]
Frequently bought together
Nearing burn out, the career of Miami reporter Malcolm Anderson (Kurt Russell, Escape From New York) is rejuvenated after an article detailing the unsolved murder of a local teen brings him notoriety as well as an unexpected and unwanted fan: a man who claims he's the murderer. Striking an uneasy collaboration with the killer known as the "Numbers Murderer" (Richard Jordan, Interiors, A Flash of Green), Malcolm is provided with deadly details in exchange for ongoing stories. The unorthodox collaboration soon takes a surprising twist when the murderer turns his attention to Christine (Muriel Hemmingway, Manhattan), Malcolm's girlfriend.

There several reasons for watching this film. The first one is Kurt Russel portraying a journalist who turns into a media event by virtue of being a spokesman of sorts for a serial killer. The second reason to watch this is to see Mariel Hemingway as a girlfriend getting pushed off the stage by her boyfriend's celebrity status. She looks less like a fashion model cum actress and more like a typically american girlfriend. The third reason to watch this is for the serial killer, who is cunning and who is less a demon and more a predatory stalker. Finally we have a cameo by Andy Garcia and Miami cops who walk and talk more like street cops and less like FBI superheroes of the nineties. But the real reson to see this is the edge of he seat suspense and false alarms which at times misfire, but turn this film into a top notch thriller and a valuable addition to any film collection!!!
