The movie no one has heard of.
1 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

The story - about a radioactive serial killer who operates in areas near a "mothballed" nuclear plant - is moderately interesting, but the pace is too leisurely and the ending too abrupt, to say the least. Not a bad film per se, but not good enough to merit a recommendation, either. Mediocre. (*1/2)
