Faced with increasing pressure from a suspicious local sheriff, as well as the advances of a female FBI investigator, he must uncover the killer before he or she strikes again, further implicating him in the crime.

It Could Have Been Worse I Suppose
29 October 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Chris Sarandon plays Luke Sinclair a writer of horror novels so controversial he occasionaly finds himself becoming the victim of assault which led me to ask how would a writer be so infamous that he`d

suffer from this type of hatred ? It`s similar to Liam Neeson`s character in THE DEAD POOL , a director of horror films so violent he`s treated as a danger to society . Is there any film maker so unpopular they`d find themself a hate figure ? Mind you I sometimes get nasty PMs from people who disagree with my reviews on this site and I do know many people who write far less subjective or polemical reviews who continually receive nasty hurtful comments . I guess there`s a lot of nasty people around and a writer being assaulted by self styled moral guardians isn`t as far fetched as it first seemed

As for the rest of REAPER it`s far from being a classic thriller and it does suffer from one too many plot twists at the end , but I don`t think it`s as bad as it could have been either . To the film`s credit Luke Sinclair is written and played as an unlikable anti hero unlike many of these thrillers where a writer is the main character , and despite a slightly cliched view of hick small town cops at least you recognise why they suspect Luke might have something to hide being a writer who writes about viscous murders
