Watchable thriller has some decent suspense.
29 November 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Luke Sinclair (Chris Sarandon) is a controversial crime novelist, who writes his criminals so vividly on his books. Despite he never really study on the subject. But his latest book is due and he owns his publisher a new book. Since Luke can't think of anything, because he has writer's block. He decides to leave on a trip by himself to finish his novel in a small quiet town, somewhere in the state of Maine. But soon, he finally arrives for a room. There's a murder that happen in that night and he becomes the number one suspect by the local sheriff (Vlasta Vrana). But what makes the murder so weird, that a page of his best selling book "Reaper" was found near the dead body. Now a female FBI investigator (Catherine Mary Stewart) is soon on the case as well, she soon finds Luke a suspect also. Is this could be the work of a crazed murderer, who's a fan of Sinclair's work or Sinclair is actually the killer himself ?

Directed by John Bradshaw made an slightly above average thriller with some unexpected suspense and thrills. Although this feels like a TV movie at times and it's routine plotted as well but the actors do a good job with their performances. It's intriguing enough to not get bored by this film. Fans of the genre will enjoy this one best. Worth a look, especially if u catch this one in cable late-night. (*** ½/*****).
