Watch The Mean Season

"A time between summer... and murder."

Reporting “just the facts” vs. getting too involved in a story provides suspense in “The Mean Season,” a 1985 film. In it, a crime reporter evolves into a man obsessed with a serial killer who phones him with details of planned murders. The action takes place one hot Miami summer, and heats up when the reporter’s ego angers his deranged informant.

Red herrings and twists keep viewers wondering how this story will play out, especially after the murderer kidnaps the reporter’s girlfriend. Staying objective becomes a problem for a reporter obsessed with telling a big story.
