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.

Not Bad for TV
29 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

OK, so not the greatest move of all time, but definitely one of the best TVmovies I've seen. I've always enjoyed it when we get to watch the cops figure out what the audience already knows. If the truth can be told, I didn't figure out the whole thing before time, I had suspicions, but was filled with reasonable doubt (you see what I did there?) Then again, this unusual brain lapse can be attributed to the fact that it was 2am. And I do like the ending, even if it was inconclusive, simply because it seemed a bit more real than some (insert Arnie voice here) "taking out da trash" ending.

The characters were well drawn enough for the purposes of the movie and it was an especially strong performance from Lou-Diamond Phillips, even if a few of the other performances weren't quite up to scratch. But hey, its a TVmovie, whaddya expect? Perhaps the best thing I can say about it, is that I was gonna give it a little while then go to bed, but it held my attention until the end. And thats a good sign!
