Bloody Proof ★★★ 1999

A serial killer is stalking well-to-do women in Mexico. Detective Ibarra (Bauer) is assigned to the case. Rookie tabloid reporter Estela (Arizmendi) finds an important clue. The resolution of the stereotypical premise runs true to form, but the characters are treated seriously and the film is stylishly made with a few moments of abrupt, shocking violence. 99m/C VHS, DVD . Steven Bauer, Yareli Arizmendi, Olivia Hussey; D: Gabriel Beristain; W: M. Francesconi, Tim Hoy; C: Andres Leon Becker; M: Eduardo Gamboa.
