Twisted Desire is a psychological thriller movie released in 1996, directed by Craig R. Baxley and starring Melissa Joan Hart, Daniel Baldwin, and Jeremy Jordan. It tells the story of a young girl whose life takes a dark turn when she falls in love with a man who is older than her and has a violent nature. The movie opens with a scene where Jennifer Stanton (played by Melissa Joan Hart) is seen as a teenager, living with her mother and younger sister in a small town. She is a shy and introverted girl who spends most of her time in her room, drawing pictures and dreaming of a better life. However, everything changes when she meets Nick Ryan (played by Jeremy Jordan), a charismatic and manipulative man who is ten years older than her.

Nick is a stranger who comes to Jennifer's town and starts working at a nearby factory. He is immediately drawn to her and invites her to go out with him. At first, Jennifer is hesitant, but soon she falls under Nick's charm and starts a secret relationship with him. Nick is shown as someone who is not only physically attractive but also sophisticated and well-spoken, often quoting famous poets and writers to express his feelings.

However, as the story progresses, it becomes clear that there is a darker side to Nick's personality. He is possessive and jealous, and often loses his temper over minor things. Jennifer tries to ignore his violent behavior, but as they get closer, she starts to feel trapped in the relationship. Her family members, especially her mother, are suspicious of Nick and try to warn her about him, but Jennifer is blinded by her love for him.

Meanwhile, the local police are investigating a series of murders that have occurred in the area, and Nick becomes one of the suspects. Daniel Baldwin plays the role of Lieutenant Matt Samuels, the lead detective in the case, who is determined to catch the killer. As he delves deeper into the investigation, he realizes that Nick may have a connection to the murders and tries to protect Jennifer from him.

The movie builds up the tension as Jennifer's relationship with Nick becomes more complex and dangerous. Melissa Joan Hart delivers an impressive performance as a vulnerable girl who is initially enamored with Nick but slowly realizes the danger he poses to her. Jeremy Jordan also shines as the enigmatic and unpredictable Nick, seamlessly portraying his seductive and violent sides.

Overall, Twisted Desire is a compelling movie that keeps the viewers on the edge of their seats. It explores themes of love, obsession, and manipulation while also presenting a thrilling murder mystery. The cinematography and soundtrack add to the mood of the film, making it a must-see for fans of the thriller genre.
