Tepid thriller
25 April 2004 | by JohnSealSee all my reviews

There's little to recommend about Indecency (it even has the indecency to not live up to its title in the slightest!), a soggy, undernourished film about the murder of a video producer (Anna Gunn), her two-timing husband (Chris Fields), her scheming partner (Sammi Fields), and her disturbed protege (Jennifer Beals). Co-written by Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things main man Alan Ormsby, the film barely has a pulse and plays like a made-for-Lifetime teleplay, though at least it doesn't insult its audience with the typical 'erotic thriller' flourishes the genre has been burdened with since the late 1980s. Polite to the extreme, Indecency will lull most viewers to sleep.
