One of the best serial killer movies
The serial killer genre is one that became popular after “Silence of the Lambs,” and since then the only ones that have really stuck out are “Se7en,” “Copycat” and “Saw.” “Copycat” is about a psychologist who lectures students on serial killers, and one day finds herself to be a victim at one of her speeches. Attacked in the bathroom, she narrowly escapes death and becomes a social recluse in the years that follow — living through the Internet, anonymously chatting on Internet chat rooms and so on and so forth.
Until the terror begins again, this time involving not only the ex-pschologist (Sigourney Weaver) but also a cop played by Holly Hunter.
“Copycat” was much better than I thought it would be. I originally saw it on TBS years ago; I remember the ads claiming it would be on, but for some reason the rights fell through and it didn’t air for another month or so… through this time period I hadn’t heard anything about the film, but within the very first few minutes I instantly knew it was going to be much better than the standard “Silence” rip-off.
I may be alone here (and trust me, I know it) but I enjoy this more than “Silence of the Lambs,” which kind of bores me at times. “Copycat” is dark and unexpectedly intelligent — it is also perfectly cast. Weaver is fine (if unexceptional) whereas Hunter’s macho-female traits are put into play perfectly by her casting as a cop.
The killer in the movie is played by Harry Connick Jr., and even he does a good job, which is saying quite a lot.
The movie has unexpected twists and is very clever in its own right. It is undoubtedly influenced (heavily) by “Silence of the Lambs” but is successful in the way it adds its own qualities to the mix — much like “Se7en” this is a serial killer movie cashing in on the success of “Silence,” but not necessarily stealing its content.
Very surprised. Catch it if you can.
Wow, people are really overrating this one.
This is not even close to Silence of the Lambs. In fact, it has so many plot holes and logical inconsistencies that 6 – 6.5 rating is generous. Acting was good but character development was sparse. We get no background on why this kid kills. He just does. And, the all-knowing psychologist who surmises that he has technical lab job, can’t figure out that he has access to sperm samples and get police over to IVF labs? Really? The most unbelievable part of Copycat is that the Dr. gets attacked multiple times in her apt yet police put a single,bumbling officer outside her door time and time again. The movie has some suspense but it is not even close to top thrillers of all-time. Too highly rated on Amazon and by many here..
