When the Bough Breaks (1994)

It was all about the hunt.

In my early video store days, we were sent tons of advance copies of movies, known in the biz as “screeners.”

There were heapin’ stacks of VHS tapes, and I took great delight in finding hidden gems which might have otherwise slipped by unnoticed.

This chiller about a troubled profiler (Ally Walker) chasing a serial killer after a pile of chopped-off hands float up from the sewers during a torrential Texas rain, fit the bill.

Big on atmosphere, with a strong supporting cast (Martin Sheen, Ron Perlman), it has always stuck with me.
