Jack’s Back (1988)

Rowdy Herrington directs James Spader, James Spader and Cynthia Gibb in this thriller where a twin gets a psychic vision of his brother’s death but finds the police suspect them both of a series of prostitute murders.

A loopy little thriller where a goody two shoes James Spader tags out and bad boy James Spader takes over at the end of the first act. The whodunnit aspect churns up some decent red herrings and the set pieces have some genuine peril to them. Spader seems a little spaced out in his leather jacket variation of himself. Forgettable but fun.
