Jackie works as a CCTV operator. Each day she watches over a small part of the world, protecting the people living their lives under her gaze. One day a man appears on her monitor, a man she thought she would never see again, a man she never wanted to see again. Now she has no choice, she is compelled to confront him.
Young British boys and girls travel to an isolated cabin after being promised a night of heavy partying. Instead of the fun they hoped for, they meet a killer out to reap vengeance on them for the death of his brother.
Jacklight is the story of a group of high school graduates returning a few years later minus one friend missing from a hunting accident that the remaining survivors were involved with. It's a striking film with some clever, unforgettable lines - thankfully a film that deviates from what you might expect from this genre, with a plot twist concerning who actually killed whom and the complications of strained relationships that result. East Texans will enjoy the familiar sights and landscapes and everyone will enjoy the individual character developments and relationships between a group of people that will no doubt remind you of some of your own friends. It's a darker type of Alan Alda's 'Four Seasons', aimed at the 70's generation audience. The score, by Scott Szabo, is catchy and hard to stop listening to. Keep your eye on Director Steve Hengtes (who has a short appearance as the unlucky Alex who doesn't make it to the troubling reunion)
his films continue to impress veteran critics.
