Storyline

Heather Williams' current life is like a fairy tale. A lawyer, she has just won the biggest case in her career, a case which took eighteen months to complete and which most pundits believed she had no chance of winning. The win led to her boss, Saul Rubens, offering her a partnership in the firm, which she accepted leading to yet another prestigious and high profile case being assigned to her. These actions are just the latest in a so far successful career, which has allowed her to live in a beautiful house. She seems to have the eye of handsome private investigator Jack Riley, the two who met on that eighteen month long case and to who Heather in turn is attracted. They feel they can move their relationship into a personal realm now that the case is over. The only black mark in Heather's current life is Ray Johnson, an old flame. Their relationship ended badly, and while Ray wants back in almost to the point of stalking Heather, Heather wants nothing to do with him. By happenstance, ... Written by Huggo

Knife to Meet You
23 December 2015 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

A deranged woman escapes from her apparent mental hospital and runs away in slow motion. Quickly, she stabs the bed where another woman is screaming, and buries her victim. Seventy-two hours earlier, wealthy blonde lawyer Josie Davis (as Heather Williams) wins an important court case and receives a promotion at her law firm. While out celebrating with her ethnically-cast friend, the beautiful Ms. Davis meets handsome blond investigator Marc Menard (as Jack Riley). They are mutually attracted. An oilier version of Mr. Menard appears and tries to get Davis' attention. He's her obsessive ex-boyfriend Sebastian Spence (as Ray Johnson)...

As if that wasn't enough to take the wind out of Davis' sails, she gets into a fender-bender with the woman from the opening minutes, psycho killer Caroline Cave (as Vanessa Miller)...

"Accidental Obsession" aka "Hit & Run" is incredibly predictable, but attractively cast and presented. Many of these unhinged psycho TV movies like to open with a attention grabbing teaser. The attention is heightened, but there is certainly no surprise when Ms. Cave makes her appearance. We know something is up, anyway, but a little more mystery would have been welcome. Toby Gorman's flexible photography and David Findlay's smooth score help keep the senses satisfied. Davis and Cave are fine in their roles and manage to be engaging despite the story staying rather routine. This one never really goes off the rails, which would have been fun.
