A Kiss So Deadly is a 1996 made-for-television thriller directed by Chuck Bowman.[1]




Tom Deese (Charles Shaughnessy) falls in love with his daughter's roommate, Amanda (Charlotte Ross), and becomes the focus of his daughter Catherine's (Dedee Pfeiffer) suspicions when Amanda is murdered.


Variety film critic Tony Scott, wrote that Shaughnessy ‘doesn’t do much convincing’ and that his former Days of Our Lives co-star Ross fared better, giving her character ‘an easygoing, even sympathetic, quality.’ He also noted Pfeiffer's ‘intelligent face’ and felt that Simpson ‘turns in the best scene of the production when he rasps into a phone.’ Scott added that the production was technically sound, but faults were the result of Schreiner's ‘absurd script.’[2]
