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.

People associated with a psychiatric hospital are being hung
4 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Hangman" (2001) is a neo-noir listed by John Grant. This one is crisply directed and a good mystery. Someone is killing people associated with a hospital in a way that's challenging the police, led by Lou Diamond Phillips, who plays a thoughtful and empathetic cop. I'm not sure we ever find out why the method used is so flamboyant and so intent on rubbing the noses of the authorities in their failure to make headway. It seems to be arranged so that there is intentional misdirection and so that there will be alibis. It's also emotional payback of sorts. At any rate, this one is a watchable if average neo-noir.
