So, flipping through late night channels, I came across this and recognized Alexandra Paul (who I worked with on a shitty film production in Ottawa, worst production I ever worked on actually, though she was nice), so I watched a little more and then started recognizing local Ottawa actors in bit parts along the way, and Ottawa streets, and I swear I POL'ed through this whole film. It is terrible shite for sure, but I was intrigued to see how many people and locations I'd recognize. I was ESPECIALLY keen to see the final credits, not just because I knew it'd be over, but I wanted to see the crew members involved who said they'd never work for these producers again. There were quite a few, so I guess times were tough and they really needed the gig. Ugh - I think of crappy productions like this and I don't miss the work AT ALL.
Anyways, the film - straight to video garbage, no ingenuity or originality even attempted, and seriously bad camera work. Most scenes with two actors exchanging dialogue were just extreme close-ups, back and forth, back and forth, between the two. They churn out like, 3 or 4 of these a year now, and I guess the money was good enough for Ms. Paul to come back to do another (I saw what she made for 'A Woman Hunted' - another terrible title, eh? - and it was disgustingly ludicrous for 20 days 'work'). There's a killer after Ms. Paul, detectives may suspect her in a murder case, she has to find evidence herself to clear her name, killer has chance to kill her and doesn't, cops arrive in nick of time, blah blah blah.....bollocks.
Dear lord, Ottawa, end the madness!!
