Storyline

Death by noose. A nasty way to die if you're not dropped from a length, but instead just had the support kicked from beneath you. A series of murders like this is taking place, linked to a net-based game of 'Hangman', the words of which are linked somehow. Detective Roos (LDP) is on the case. He finds himself drawn to Grace Mitchell (Madchen Amick), who is somehow connected to all of the victims. Hangman is a story of pure vengeance, against everyone who burdened the killer's mind.

It's OK, considering it's a TV movie
31 January 2004 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This was an OK thriller, the plot is especially good, but it just isn't as good as it could/should have been, even for a TV movie. The plot seemed great when I read about it, but it just wasn't very special once you got into it. The movie is another typical "guess who did it" mystery thriller, and it primarily fails because it's almost instantaneously obvious who the perpetrator is, and from there, it's just watching the cops get to the bottom of the case, which you've already done. The acting ranges from good to just above average, but none of it's totally bad. The excitement of the movie is barely ever present, as most of the movie consists of the mystery of who did it(which is obvious very early on in the movie), and not the possible suspense of "can we save someones life?". It's just above average, and I guess it's worth watching if it's on TV, and there's absolutely nothing else interesting to watch. You could do a lot worse than this though, as a thriller it's just above average, and that's good enough, as this type of thriller rarely is more than that. 6/10
