Storyline

This movie concerns a writer of mystery stories who bases his villain on a criminal, played by Malcolm McDowell, who is incarcerated in prison. Escaping prison after his apparent death in a fire, the criminal plans to revenge himself on the writer (Sir Roger Moore) for "stealing his personality", and proceeds to carry out a set of murders based around the novels. Moore is unable to convince the authorities of the true murderer, and alerted by an avid fan (Nancy Allen) who has psychic powers, seeks to trap McDowell into giving himself away.

Very Nice made-for-TV movie!
31 March 2012 | by buigerSee all my reviews

I always have been a sucker for Roger Moore films. Even though his charm has inevitably diminished with age, he still remains Simon Templair for me. His 'savoir faire' on the screen is unmistakable, it should be copyright protected (if it hasn't been already).

In this somewhat Hitchcockian film for TV (whivh proves once again that low budget TV movies can nowadays be much better than many made for the large screen), he creates a good atmosphere together with Malcolm McDowell who is as always, a truly exceptional villain. A thriller almost (as Moore) of other times, based on plot, twists and turns, and not on special f/x. A very welcome change. Thanks Roger!
