88 Minutes

Synopsis: In Seattle, the successful forensic psychiatrist and college professor Jack Gramm is in evidence since he was responsible for the condemnation of the serial killer Jon Forster, influencing the jury to sentence him to the death row. Jon accuses Jack of manipulation, inducing one witness and sister of one of his victims to testify against him. On the eve of Jon's execution, Jack receives a phone call telling him that he has only eighty-eight minutes of life, while a killer is copycatting Jon, killing women with the same "modus-operandi" and is investigated by Seattle Slayer Task Force. With the support of associate Shelly Barnes, an FBI agent, his friend Frank Parks, and his assistant Kim Cummings, Jack investigates some weird and problematic students, a security guard of the campus and the woman with whom he had one night stand.

or anything new you wanna lay

on the table...

now it would be the time.

Would you say it was fair

to characterize...

your attitude towards

John Forster...

- as a personal vendetta?

- Lf we're been fair, yeah, sure.

It's a personal vendetta. I have

a personal vendetta against Ted Bundy...

and Gacy and about 10 or 15

other serial murders...

- that are on the streets right now.

- Jack, please.

That's helpful.

There is one other issue

that we need to address.

Milk maid.

What's going on here?

Do you know a woman named

Dale Morris?



- She's a student of mine.

- She's just a student of yours?

Dr. Gramm, we're federal agency here.

You don't wanna be lying here.

- We had a relationship.

- You've been very cryptic right now?

He had a professional relationship,

not a sexual relationship.

About a year ago her father died.

She was very troubled.

I treated her as psychiatrist.

I don't sleep with my students,

Mr. Goober.

Neither I sleep with my patients.

Now what does this have to do

with anything? Anyway.


Dale Morris was murdered

last night.

She's the third and latest victim.

When was the last time

you saw Dale?


I saw...

I saw her last night.

To our impossibly

difficult professor.

We say thank you...

for making our lives miserable.

The pleasure is all mine.

We're celebrating.

You're celebrating

Forster's pending execution?

No, we're celebrating his conviction,

not his execution.

It was an overturn so we're happy

about that. We worked hard on this case.

We have a tape

that was left on the crime scene.

We're gonna play it for you now.

This message is for

Dr. Jack Gramm.

You got the wrong man.

Forster is innocent.

Please, don't hurt me anymore.

Don't hurt me anymore.

You gonna let me go, right?
