Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Helen Hudson is a psychiatrist who specializes in serial killers. She suffers from agoraphobia and her only link to the outside world is her computer. A serial killer who copies the methods of famous serial killers (hence the title) threatens her on-line. Holly Hunter plays a cop who is on the trail of the killer. Together they try to identify him and, hopefully, dispatch him.
One man is copying the most notorious killers in history one at a time. Together, two women must stop him from killing again. Or they're next.

- Sigourney Weaver is almost a foot taller than Holly Hunter, thus for many scenes Weaver would be sitting down to make their heights appear more equal.
The climactic bathroom scene took 8 days to film.
To research her role, Sigourney Weaver consulted with leading forensic psychiatrist 'Park Deitz', who had interviewed serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
Holly Hunter hung about with several homicide detectives in downtown L.A. to help her get into her character.
In earlier versions of the script, the character of M.J. Monahan was written as a man and a romance would develop between Monahan and Helen Hudson.
