Copycat was one of many horror/thrillers that Hollyweird turned to in the 90's after the smashing success of Silence of the Lambs. This would be a run of the mill entry if it wasn't for the cast, especially Sigourney Weaver as the criminal psychologist turned agoraphobic after being assaulted by a psychotic killer played fairly well by Harry Connick, Jr.
The film would have been tighter without the love triangle but it is still a solid entry. Following the IMDB rating system, I give it 7.5/10 and call it a strong rental recommendation.
