Quotes

Dr. Vincent Garret: Essentially, the eyes are a sort of a camera, in which you can figure the brain is a roll of film. Everything we see, feel, touch, is stored for an indefinite period of time. The key is being able to retrieve it.

Rather boring mystery thriller...
9 September 2000 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

"The Killing Jar" is a perfect cure for insomnia.At times deadly dull,even nonsensical,at times genuinely nightmarish.The acting is acceptable,the photography is beautiful,but the ending is rather predictable.No strong violence,no scares,some nightmarish set-pieces-if you like this sort of stuff you can try it.For me a mediocrity.
