Mean / men / Season / 'sezen/:
When inclement conditions with unpredictable and severe storms pummel the coastal areas, the pattern of weather that occurs in Florida during the late summer months.
Nearing burn out, the career of Miami reporter Malcolm Anderson (Kurt Russell, Escape From New York) is rejuvenated after an article detailing the unsolved murder of a local teen brings him notoriety as well as an unexpected and unwanted fan: a man who claims he's the murderer.
Striking an uneasy collaboration with the killer known as the "Numbers Murderer" (Richard Jordan, Interiors, A Flash of Green), Malcolm is provided with deadly details in exchange for ongoing stories. The unorthodox collaboration soon takes a surprising twist when the murderer turns his attention to Christine (Muriel Hemmingway, Manhattan), Malcolm's girlfriend.
Director Phillip Borsos' nail-biting thriller The Mean Season, from a screenplay by Leon Piedmont based on the novel "In The Heat of the Summer" by John Katzenbach, co-stars Andy Garcia (Ocean's Eleven, The Untouchables), Richard Masur (Risky Business, The Thing), Joe Pantoliano (Bound, TV's The Sopranos) and Richard Bradford (Night Game).
