"The Face of Fear" is one of the best television movies I've ever seen. The underrated Kevin Conroy (best known as the voice of the animated Batman) plays one intense and psychotic serial killer. It's great to watch his character go from calm and laid-back to burning mad with frustration as his intended victims - a psyhic (Lee Horsely) and his assistant (Pam Dawber) - continue to stay one step ahead of him as he stalks them throughout the empty skyscraper where they're working. The other actors give solid performances as well, but Conroy is the stand-out talent in this flick. Chase scenes and occasional physical encounters all lead to a thrilling climax as Horsely and Dawber attempt to scale the side of the building in their desperate attempt to reach the streets below, and safety. Great score by John Debney, too. Check it out next time to see it listed!
