 Copycat:Dr.Helen's confrontation with what she had observed!!

   Dr.Helen Hudson had to encounter a near to death situation after a lecture on criminal psychology.She was an expert in describing the psychological conditions of criminals,especially the serial killers.But her traumas caught herself in a closed apartment without any visitors.But someone was waiting for her.An active serial killer who was keen to satisfy his egos by having a face to face confrontation.

   A series of  murders took place in San Francisco and every time the killer made a mysterious mark on his victims.He was trying to draw his attention from someone.Later,his intentions became clear.An excellent performance from Sigourney Weaver as the agoraphobic psychiatrist made the movie to check the emotional life of not only the killer,but also his counter-part.The investigation lead by   Monahan(Holly hunter) had their own situations too.'Copycat' is a perfect cat and mouse serial killer movie alike The Silence of The Lambs,Se7en etc.The only drawback which one can find between those epic movies might be Peter Foley(William McNamra).Even though he fared well in his role,it can be considered normal comparing to other villains in similar flicks.

Finalizando:'Copycat' can be considered as an under rated serial killer movie.It is an intriguing and intelligent thriller with a strong screenplay.Highly recommendable for fans of the genre!
