We gave it a D

In I’m Dangerous Tonight, a red cloak from the Aztec era transforms anyone who wears it into an evil person bent on destruction. The cloak finds its way to a small college town and brings havoc along. The only reason I watched this hokey-sounding TV movie was to see Mädchen Amick, the much-abused Shelly, creepy Leo’s wife, on Twin Peaks.

I was curious to see whether Amick had any range as an actress, and she does — she goes from sedate college student to murderous temptress with ease. The rest of the movie is sanitized horror-movie piffle, with Anthony Perkins in a cameo role as — get this — a normal person. D
