This 1998 made for Cable movie is suprisingly effective, comparable to films like SEVEN, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, THE BONE COLLECTOR...not quite as sharp but entertaining nonetheless.
Rutger Hauer plays William Palmer, a former medical examiner who has written a best selling novel about his involvement with the Bone Daddy, a despicable serial killer who was never caught. In his novel, however, Bone Daddy is captured, and this really ticks off the real criminal who goes on a rampage of vengeance. Barbara Williams as the troubled detective; R.H. Thomson as Hauer's associate and Joseph Kell as the son who is following in his father's footsteps lend capable support.
Intriguing and worth a view.
