Movie Info

In this steamy thriller, Taylor Lewis (Patrick Bergin) is a district attorney who is assigned to prosecute Angela Carter (Joan Severance) when she's accused of murdering her husband -- who just so happens to be the mayor's cousin. However, the longer Lewis investigates the case, the more he begins to question the widow's guilt; what's more, he imagines he may be compromising his integrity when he finds himself falling in love with her. Cause of Death also stars Michael Ironside and Larry Day.

Critic Reviews for Cause of Death

All Critics (1)

Those looking for a comfortably familiar spin on the old 'double indemnity' device may enjoy Cause of Death one late night on HBO, though it's hardly worthy of a special trip to the DVD store.

Audience Reviews for Cause of Death


3.5/10. Relentlessly boring murder mystery, slow as can be, not very well acted and I could not get involved in the film at all. The characters never really develop to a point where you can care about them. Skip this one.
