Because DTV (Direct-To-Video) thrillers have a reputation for being the “bastard stepchildren” of larger budgeted cable, TV and big screen fare, some great little movies that hold dynamite performances have a tendency to become underrated and overlooked. This was definitely one of them.James Spader gives a performance every bit as remarkable as that of Jeremy Irons in DEAD RINGERS, playing twins who become embroiled in a murder mystery involving a serial killer, who is copycatting the infamous Jack the Ripper’s horrendous legacy of bloody terror, down to the most minute details.B-movie pro Herrington knows how to keep the action, cinematography and editing going at maximum warp, so that the glaring inconsistencies and gaping plot holes are apparent only on repeated viewings. But if you can get past that, you will be rewarded by Spader’s performance, (which gives one all the more reason to wonder why this man is not a major star right now), as well as some fine turns by Cynthia Gibb (TV’s FAME), Jim Haynie, TWIN PEAKS’ Chris Mulkey (another criminally overlooked actor), and a wickedly enjoyable portrayal by Rod Loomis, as a local doctor who knows a lot more about the murders than he lets on.A nice little surprise that’s worth seeking out on the shelves of your local video palace when all the “good” stuff is gone for the weekend.

A young doctor who works in an inner city clinic sees that one of the persons who comes to the clinic is an old friend who is now a junkie. It seems she’s pregnant and wants an abortion but the head of the clinic refuses to have it done. Later, he goes to see her and he finds another doctor from the clinic doing something to her. He assumes he’s the ripper and runs off, but, the man catches him and kills him. The police assume he’s the ripper and closes the case. But, as they place the body in the ambulance, another man comes walking by who looks like him. It turns out to be his twin brother. It seems he had a dream about his brother’s death. When the psychiatrist consulting the police thinks he’s telling the truth, he hypnotizes him and he reveals things that only a person with intimate knowledge could know.
