But as Erika Breen in 1989’s Blind Fear, former Angel Shelley Hack (The Stepfather, Troll) is able to avoid and set dangerous traps for a trio of murderous bank robbers in a remote and abandoned resort inn – without causing even a tangle in her curly blonde hair. This is particularly skilled because Hack’s Breen is legally blind – hence the scintillating title.
Granted, most of the film’s running time is spent in hide and seek mode, as the dangerous characters played by genre regulars Kim Coates (Red Blooded American Girl, The Club) and Heidi Von Pallekse (Dead Ringers) stalk the increasingly stealthy Breen. But one does experience a strange thrill as Hack discovers how to utilize bear traps and gas stoves to her perilous advantage. The twist ending also elicits a certain thrill, as well.
In the grand category of misleading advertising, though, the Echo Bridge DVD release gives this pulse pounding exercise an ‘R’ rating. But, the frequent though mild violence (and obvious commercial breaks) proves this to be a made-for-television offering with PG intensity, at best!
