nothing new under the sun
7 August 2017 | by mark_kingmaSee all my reviews

Once again we have a male who meets a female, becomes obsessed with her and murders the other male in her life. Episode one. On to number two and I suspect we are gonna see how the female can't get rid of this psychotic male.

Actually nothing new in this series. Obsessive psychotic's have been the subject of thrillers so many times.
