It's just one year since a maniac stopped raping women. But now he's back and starts again with the same woman as last time. Police contacts all other victims and tries to set up a trap. Detective Eileen Burke (Erika Eleniak) changes her outlook and moves to one of the victims' flat. The rapist can't see the trap, attacks Eileen and rapes her. She's hiding what happened and tries to catch him. During conversation with one of the previous victims Eileen finds out who he is and arrests him. She decides to tell everybody about what he did to her. This movie has pretty wild camera which makes very good atmosphere. Script is good and you will enjoy this movie.
Erika had an opportunity to show her acting talent and did it well. This is very good movie and Erika is excellent! Two very good reasons to see it. For all Erika fans it's a must.
