Movie Info

A man struggles to resolve a potentially deadly case of mistaken identity in this thriller. Though he stubbornly insists he is innocent, Race Darnell (Patrick Swayze) is sentenced to a term in prison for the murder of his wife. While behind bars, he begins corresponding through tape-recorded "letters" with several women at once; he mistakenly sends the wrong letter to the wrong woman one day and gets a recording back in which he angrily claims she is going to kill him. Race soon has other things to think about; he's finally cleared of his wife's murder and is released from jail, only to be accused of two other killings. Race is determined to prove he's not the man to blame, and this time he has the help of the guard who used to watch over him.more

...I didn't even hate this because of Swayze. Heck, I liked Black Dog!

Audience Reviews for Letters From a Killer

½

It was an ok movie but there just wasn't enough. You can tell it was a direct to dvd movie. There just wasn't enough here to keep you into the film all that much. It's interesting but not easy to pay attention to either. Maybe it was the cast or the direction but there isn't enough in this movie to make it any better then an average or ok movie.
