Review

Sigourney Weaver is a psychology expert specializing in the mindset of serial killers who is emotionally scarred after a close-call with one of her subjects, serial killer Daryll Lee Cullum. When a new string of murders is ravaging San Francisco, police inspectors Holly Hunter and Dermot Mulroney seek help from Weaver to solve the puzzle. This psychological thriller directed by Jon Amiel is full of 1990s conventions and contrived plot developments, but keeps us interested through its semi-fascinating premise and invested performances by its two female leads. Copycat is a film which owes quite a lot to Silence of the Lambs, but has very little of the 1991 classic’s panache.
