A split diopter lens is used in the final kitchen scene. The two-shots show both characters in sharp focus, even though one is much farther from the camera. Normally, one or the other would be out of focus. But a half-width lens placed in front of the camera's main lens adjusts the focal plane of one side of the scene, allowing close and distant subjects to appear sharp. Brian De Palma often uses this filming technique. See more »

A serial killer is collecting strong and attractive young women. He is also attracted to their talents and wisdom. It may be that he is holding his living trophies in underground cells. It may be that he is stalking on both coasts; in South Carolina and in California. Does this diabolical deranged man have a partner in crime; or does he have a copy cat competing with him?
One of the victims manages to get away. The lovely Ashley Judd is a doctor that studies kick boxing for a hobby. She ends up helping Morgan Freeman, who plays a forensic psychologist and special criminal investigator. Judd and Morgan work very well together and make the sleuthing as tense as holding forty bumble bees in a soup can. The scenes in the woods brings anxiety to a boiling point.
If you liked BONE COLLECTOR or just a fan of chilling, action mysteries; this will not disappoint you. Also in the cast are: Cary Elwes, Roma Maffia and Alex McArthur.
