Sheriff Wes Clayton is a compassionate lawman and a Mormon bishop in a quiet Mormon community called Brigham. The tranquil town is shaken to the core when a woman from California is found murdered near her car.

As a civil and spiritual leader in the frightened town, Clayton must serve both justice and mercy to uncover the town's deepest secrets, find the murderer and keep Brigham from ripping itself apart.

Innocence interrupted...
21 June 2001 | by (West Valley) – See all my reviews

In the theater my best friend and I made up half the audience. This is a misfortune indeed, because I relished this film. We have two main characters, Wes, a small town sheriff who believes his little community is a sanctuary from the outside world and Meredith, who being raised in Manhattan, finds the far out, little Mormon community kinda creepy. Together they face the unspeakable acts of a cold-blooded killer. This film literally gave me the chills and the filmography was very Hitchcock-like giving the audiences plenty of suspense, without grossing them out, as other films maybe would have gone overboard on. What makes the film even more eerie is that it never shows the girls being followed or stalked before they are killed. They are just found. Another remarkable performance to be noted was that of Matthew A. Brown. His many-layered character was a thrill to watch. I hope him more in the future. Wilford Brimley gave a wonderful perfromance too. This movie is definate four star rating in my book!
