The Face of Fear Review

Image for The Face of Fear

To escape a psychotic killer, former mountain climber, with a bad case of vertigo, Graham Harris, must fight his fears as he and his fiancee are forced to descend down the outside of the skyscraper 40 stories above the ground.

★★★★★

Taking the most hackneyed of TV movie premises — a psychic is pursued by the serial killer whose crimes he has been mentally witnessing — and a few leftover bits of the plot of Die Hard, this adaption of Dean R. Koontz’ paperback best-seller is a surprisingly, well, good.

The clichéd characters are given a touch more depth than usual, and there are neat, non-stereotyped supporting performances from cop Bob Balaban and smarmy journalist William Sadler

A gripping TV time-waster
