Dean Koontz's Mr. Murder (1998) (part 1 of 11)
NOTE: This review was originally posted in two installments corresponding to the two parts of this TV miniseries.
Well, here I go again with another film whose subject is human cloning. Is it the impending release of Episode II? Is it recent advances in technology? Or is there something in the water? Regardless, Dean Koontz’s Mr. Murder (1998) will prove to be a doozie on the order of the previous cloning movie I reviewed, Parts: The Clonus Horror. This film, however, will require two full reviews to completely dissect. I’d like to say that it’s simply because of how staggeringly awful it is, but that’s only partially true. The real reason is that it started life as a TV miniseries, airing on two separate nights. Well, it seems both parts of this miniseries have found their way onto DVD (There exists a shorter VHS version of this movie, but I’m way too much of a masochist to have given it more than a passing glance), and I will be exploring both parts in depth.
