Copycat (1995) R - 3½ Stars

Solid preformances by all and the movie does a decent job on involving you into the crime so you can feel Helen's fears. It's one of those mess with your head type movies I enjoy so much.

Helen Hudson (Sigourney Weaver), is a criminal psychologist on serial killers who being stalked and almost killed by copy cat killer, Daryll Lee Cullum (Harry Connick, Jr.). Even though Cullum is for now locked up, Helen has a hard time functioning when leaving her apartment.

When homicide detectives M.J. Monahan (Holly Hunter) and Ruben Goetz (Dermot Mulroney), are investigating the murders, they call upon Helen for her expertise. Cullum copy cats the work of famous serial killers he admires by using different styles. Helen discovers his game but she doesn't know which techniques he'll use next.
