KIRKUS REVIEW

 Already tormented by his actress wife Emma Chapman's screen debut in an art porn fantasy, New York psychiatrist Jason Frank is frantic with worry over a series of rambling letters to Emma signed ``The One Who Saved You.'' But while he's planning a trip to San Diego to match the letter-writer with Emma's old high-school classmate Troland Grebs, Grebs, who likes to tattoo and burn his women, is already in New York waiting (a nice touch) for Frank to leave Emma alone and vulnerable. But since this psychodrama is a lot less imaginatively laid out than Glass's sunlit gothic To Do No Harm (1992), it's obvious that Grebs will get a chance to hone his homicidal instincts on a Manhattan hooker--as well as on his suspicious landlady--in order to give Detective April Woo enough time to get within shooting distance of his unholy lair. Overscaled and overlong, but not otherwise remarkable.
