Cat Ellington's review of the psychological suspense thriller "Dual Mania"
Written, produced, and directed by Joseph Strickland, Dual Mania is a unique motion picture effort boasting a talented, multiracial cast of performers, a few of whom would include Joseph Plummer, a veteran stage actor and Joseph Jefferson Award nominee who portrays Dr. Steve Livingston, Sherrice Eaglin, too a legend of the Chicago stage and a feature film and television actress who stars as Lydia Johnson, and newcomer Michael Spitz, who is introduced in his first major screen role as the pathological antagonist, Tommy Valentine.
In addition to her character foundation in Dual Mania, Sherrice Eaglin is a standout actress whose filmography incorporates a number of critically- acclaimed works in which the Chicago-based thespian has been showcased, including but not limited to: "There's Hope Musical," "Chicago P.D.," "Love Relations," "Bowls of Water," etc.
Also starring in this intense film noir style thriller are "Judas Run" and "The Executive" actress Renee Domenz, who was cast to portray the role of Lucy; "Hurry Up!" and "Bones" actress Yvonne Huff who appears as Delores; "Stir of Echoes" and "Road to Perdition" star Duane Sharp as the Record Store Manager; and "The Defiled" actress Ali Goodman, in her memorable role as the Woman in Red Dress, among an undeniable troupe of other fellow performers who round out Dual Mania's wonderfully diverse cast.
Set in Strickland's native Chicago, Dual Mania is a broodingly dark and captivating suspense that will undoubtedly be regarded as one of the most distinctive films of its respective genre.
