Crimes of Passion   Offscreen 2014 minilogo thriller reviews reviews Psychosexual Sexual Psycho

Bobby (John Laughlin) and Amy Grady (Annie Potts) are married, with children, but not wealthy enough for Amy’s taste. In order to make some more money to keep Amy happy, Bobby takes on some extra night work conducting surveillance on a woman – Joanna Crane (Kathleen Turner) – at the behest of Joanna’s employer. Bobby is shocked to discover that Joanna is leading a double life as a clothing designer by day and exotic $50 hooker called “China Blue” by night; he’s even more shocked when he realizes he’s attracted to her despite being married. Aside from decency, the biggest obstacle to their potential happiness is the unhinged street preacher Rev. Peter Shayne (Anthony Perkins) who’s stalking Joanna because he wants to “save” her.

Preachers are like that.

Like a trip from the outer body horror to the inner one, the one of the mind.
