A scary, realistic, exciting murder mystery
5 December 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Chris Sarandon plays a famous murder-mystery writer who has become tired of life, and who has not been able to write in over 18 months. He's tired of the harrassment he's been getting from religious extremists who think that the grisly realism with which he writes means that he's in league with devil, and from his publisher who says he's three months overdue with his next book, and especially from his wife, who appears to find fault with everything he does.

So he goes up the coast to get away from it all, to see if he can get through his writers' block. By not taking his medication, and avoiding sobriety, he hopes to get back in touch with "the savage instincts within every man" which was responsible for the scary realism of his books.

The trouble is that murders start happening nearby, each one an exact copy of the murders in his famous book "Reaper". Not only that, but there's a page from his book on each of the victims' bodies, the exact page that describes the murder! So he's number one suspect, and is hauled in for questioning.

All good murder mysteries keep you guessing who the real murderer is, and this film is one of the best! Just when you think you've worked out who the real murderer is, other evidence keeps coming up, first pointing one way, then the other.

If you love a good murder mystery, this is the film for you. And if you don't love them, then this is the film which will change your mind!
