Criminal profiler and psychologist Dr. Helen Hudson (Weaver) becomes entangled in the deadly mind game of a vicious copycat serial killer Peter Foley (McNamara). Due to the horrific attack Helen suffered in her past as an agoraphobic she is confined to her apartment. The killer uses this against her in his murderous attempts to become a famous serial killer. Detectives M.J. Monahan (Hunter) and Reuben Goetz (Mulroney) have the challenge of trying to capture the killer before he kills again and uses his chance to commit another atrocious murder.
Plot hole: When Connick has Hudson hanging in the toilets at the start of the movie he grabs the first cop who tries to help her and says he cannot decide whether he should shoot or stab the cop, choosing eventually to do both. At the end of the movie, the copycat does this as well but he makes a mistake: after grabbing Hunter he tells Hudson about not being able to decide if he should shoot or stab but the copycat already had a dead cop's body placed in the toilet in the exact the same way Connick dropped the cop. This makes Hunter the second cop. For somebody with such an eye for detail, the copycat should have done the 'can't decide' monologue with the first cop in front of Hudson, but he is already dead on the floor when she wakes up.
