    Synopsis


    Copycat
    Dr. Helen Hudson (Sigourney Weaver), a psychiatrist famous for her writings about serial murderers, is nearly killed by obsessed psychopath Daryll Lee Cullum (Harry Connick Jr.). As a result of this trauma, Helen becomes a drunken, pill-taking agoraphobic who can't leave her San Francisco apartment. After a series of bizarre murders, she calls the police suggesting that the murders were the work of a serial killer. Detective M.J. Monahan (Holly Hunter) and her assistant Ruben (Dermot Mulroney) believe Helen and discover, during the investigation, that the man is re-creating murders by the killers described in Helen's book: The Boston Strangler, Ted Bundy, Son of Sam and the Hillside Strangler. After Helen's secretary, Andy (John Rothmen) is murdered, Helen begins to fear for her own life. The film has a dramatic, terrifying conclusion as Helen confronts the killer and must overcome her own fears to save herself. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

      Being a Sigourney Weaver fan, it will be impossible not relish in this taut, first-rate serial, psycopathic killer investigation and resolution. A young, but experienced, brilliant female detective and her male side-kick try to help the agoraphobic and vicious attack victim, Weaver's character, back outside, but danger lurks and looms. In her juxtaposed Ripley role, Weaver persuades her audience with her versatile acting talents!

      copycat is pretty good thriller it is kinda like a cat and mouse game because you never know who will live or die until the end and it keeps you guessing what going to happen next and the blu-ray is better than the dvd so well worth up grading to blu-ray over the dvd so if you can find it for 10 bucks or less than i would pick it up and it is no where near as good as seven but still a good thriller to watch

      A bit outdated, but consider it a golden oldie

      I picked this out of the bargain bin at $4 and it was certainly worth all of that. I don't remember it from when it was made, but how can you miss with Sigourney Weaver and Holly Hunter? It was made in 1995, so the technology looks archaic, but as a thriller it still works.

      I was surprised when I first saw Copycat at theaters, Harry Connick jr plays his part so well and at that point, who new he could even act. When I saw this at Best Buy on Bluray, I just had to buy it. This is a must see movie foe anyone that likes suspenseful movies.

      Copycat is basically about an agoraphobic psychologist and a female detective that must work together to take down a serial killer who copies serial killers from the past. It's an ok movie, that lulls a little in the middle. But for the 4.95 I paid for it, it was a steal!

      Silence of the Lambs spawned a ton of imitators in the 90's. But this one may be one of the best. Great performances by the whole cast. You'll never look at Harry Connick Jr. the same way again. Blu-ray is average quality.

      Suspenseful crime drama.Shows stresses and strains on those dealing with violent crimes. Women play a prominent role in this film, but I won't say more so as not to include a spoiler.

      Sigourney Weaver is such a great actress. She plays a psychologist who works with a detective to solve a string of murders from copycats. The twist is the murders have already been committed in the past and is being recreated by new serial copycat killers.
