The third in a series of PAX Network films based on the suspense novels of Mary Higgins Clark, Haven't We Met Before? straddles over 100 years in its depiction of a truly unstoppable serial killer. Under hypnosis, mental patient Stephen Koenig (Page Fletcher) suggests that he is responsible for a series of recent brutal murders. He also offers a bizarre defense, claiming to be the reincarnation of a 19th century man wrongly sentenced to the gallows on the testimony of a beautiful woman -- whom, Koenig insists, has also been reincarnated, in the form of law-school student and part-time waitress Emily Watson (Nicollette Sheridan). It is up to dedicated detective Jack Cobel (Anthony Lemke) to uncover the true story -- and to rescue Emily, with whom he has fallen in love, from the wrath of a murderer who may well be several centuries old. Mary Higgins Clark's Haven't We Met Before? made its American TV bow on March 23, 2002.
