Year 5 Day 65

movie: The Rendering
starring: Shannen Doherty, Peter Outerbridge
genre:Crime, Thriller
format: Hollywood Suites Channel

plot: After helping to put a serial stalker behind bars, a woman's husband is framed for murder by the same man

This is sadly, a typical made for tv movie. The plot moves so quickly, that it feels chopped up too much. You have the lead go undercover to get the bad guy, yet there's this creepy undercurrent of a romance between them. The scene where she agrees to meet her former attacker for dinner, to try to get a confession, just seemed a bit much. 

The movie just runs completely cold. There didn't seem to be any chemistry with any of the three main characters.  Outerbrige plays his villain to perfection, with just enough con-artist/obsessive/controlling stalker to give you pause, but the rest of the cast fall flat.

what did i learn?  too much time spent on getting the right art props, not enough energy into the script
