Storyline

In San Juan, Puerto Rico, after two gristly murders, the murderer has used the victims' blood to paint the walls by the bodies. An agnostic Jesuit priest, whose brother was the first victim, visits the crime scene: look for a talented abstract-expressionist painter who's going through a spiritual crisis and is angry at God, the priest says. The police ask Father Michael to continue to assist them, and he visits Bohemian haunts an artist might frequent. Father Michael's own history unfolds, too: he's a painter, he has an ex-girlfriend in San Juan, and he's attracted to Mary, a life-drawing model. Soon all fingers point to an aging local artist, Lewis Garou. Case closed? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Dark, bloody, sweaty, morose slasher flick
18 May 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"The Apostate", a dark drama airing on HBO, tells of an insane artist (Hopper) who slashes his victims and paints on walls with their blood and a Jesuit priest (Grieco) and artist, the brother of a victim, who sets about to find the killer through his art. A grisly, moody flick set in sweaty San Juan, Puerto Rico, "The Apostate" puts Grieco through his paces as it plods along toward a predictable conclusion under oppressively heavy and dark atmospherics. An okay journeyman effort, what the film lacks in story it makes up for with attitude, music, drama, and art. Worth a look for those into B-flick drama with liturgical overtones.
