Deja-vu, as an ex-detective turned best selling true crime author is confronted by the copycat unsolved serial killings he investigated as a cop ten years ago. And now, all fingers are pointed in his direction. This, compounded by Todd's severe, mysterious headaches and his untimely discovery that he's been adopted, turn his life into his own worst nightmare. Written by
In Melbourne, the former detective Todd Russell (William Snow) quitted the police force after an unsolved serial-killer case that has deeply affected him. Ten years later, Todd has become a successful writer, writing best-sellers about his cases. He lives with Lori Peterson (Victoria Hill) and has an assistant, Ben Sykes (Matthew Dyktynski). Todd has strong headaches and discovers that he was adopted after the death of his biological mother. When a copycat killer is investigated by Detective Inspector Wolcott (Peter Hardy) and Special Agent Seaver (Michael Edward-Stevens), they seek-out Todd that refuses to collaborate claiming that he was traumatized by the case ten years ago. Now Todd becomes the prime suspect of the police.
"Dead End" is an effective thriller with a good story. The screenplay builds the tension but there are few characters probably due to the restrained budget and it is not difficult to disclose who might be the serial-killer. Despite the fake reviews in IMDb, it is worthwhile watching this movie. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "A Décima Vítima" ("The Tenth Victim")
