Night Scream (2001) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Video hunk Casper van Dien surfaces as a wrongly accused murderer in the made for TV Night Scream. A muddled script and a less than marvelous cast hinder the overall effect of this baffling mystery. Candace Cameron Bure plays the dual role of Laura Fairgate, a young beauty murdered..supposedly by her boyfriend van Dien. She also plays Drew, a double for the murdered girl, who mysteriously shows up in Laura’s hometown on the anniversary of her murder. We find out Drew’s really van dien’s new girlfriend, who he has asked to go through this charade in order to clear his name. Teri Garr appears as Laura’s grief-stricken mother, and that’s about it..she appears. Garr, a capable actress, has little emotion in her weak and lifeless portrayal. Garr has remarried a man who didn’t approve of her late husband’s plans for the little town of Shrevestown, Oregon..hint, hint.
Cameron is not a strong enough actress to carry off this duplicity convincingly, and it is ultimately her lack of real talent, that sabotages this movie.
It has a few twists, but little suspense, and has all the markings of a t.v. movie. Not that that’s bad, but it hurts this one!
