An Alaska State Trooper partners with a young woman who escaped the clutches of a serial killer to bring the murderer to justice.
Basically OK crime drama with some good performances doesn't add anything new to the genre.
Maltin**: "Sordid, fact-based account...well made and well acted, but it wallows in graphic depictions of the worst kind of violence against women that it claims to be condemning. This is entertainment?"
A young girl is murdered and watches over her family - and her killer - from purgatory.
Although obviously made with a lot of talents involved the director overdid the phantasmagorical elements on the verge to kitsch.
On renewed viewing: I still think this movie could have been better.
Maltin **1/2: "Well-made, well-acted adaptation of Alice Sebold's bestseller suffers from overabundant, heavy-handed images of an Edenic afterlife that don't connect with the rest of the film."
