Watch The Rendering
- 1 hr 33 min
Art student Sarah (Shannen Doherty) is attacked and stabbed by Theodore Gray (Peter Outerbridge) one night as she is leaving class. Sarah survives the brutal attack but is left with physical and emotional scars. It is her sketch of her attacker that aids detective Nick Sousa (Stephen Young) in the arrest and conviction of Gray. Gray, in state prison, is up for parole 10 years later. Sarah is now married to insurance executive Michael Reynolds (John Brennan), though she has yet to tell her husband after two years of marriage about her attack. Michael wants to have children but Sarah, still suffering the mental scars from her attack, remains distant. Sarah, because of her artistic talents, continues to help Souza with police sketches. She does one sketch that looks like her husband Michael. Michael is quickly arrested for an attack on a woman. Sarah meets Gray in prison before Gray's parole hearing. He tells her that if she doesn't testify on his behalf that her husband Michael would be in serious danger. Sarah then tells her husband about Gray and her attack. Michael, though, tells her not to testify for Gray. Sarah tells the parole board that Gray is a changed man and Gray is released from prison. Gray, now an accomplished artist himself, is still obsessed with Sarah and later admits to her that he framed her husband after reading in the newspaper about her marriage two years before. Sarah uncovers Gray's plot but Gray then tries to frame Sarah for murder. Sarah, though, finally convinces the police of Gray's guilt and Gray is arrested once again. Gray, however, escapes custody and takes Michael hostage. After a violent struggle at Gray's art studio between Gray, Sarah and Michael, Sarah ends up killing Gray. It is only now that Sarah is free of the mental anguish that Gray inflicted upon her.
