Did You Know?


Robert D. Keppel had watched the film and was very pleased with it. He also praised Cary Elwes and Bruce Greenwood's performances. See more »


Robert Keppel: If you know someone, someone close to you and you put together all the pieces; all the laughter and the tears and the silences all the deep telling moments of their life then, well then you can inhabit them and feel part of them. But if you've known someone with a soul dark, so terrifying and you've crawled into every foul corner they think they've hidden from you and you've inhabited them... How do you... How do you come back? Can you return to how you used to be?

Pretty Good TV Movie
6 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

A&E is pretty good at making shows about serial killers, so why not make a movie, right? The answer is yes. This is a well done TV film that hopefully will not be overlooked by the public. It has some of the stuff we've seen before but it saves itself with great pacing and deep emotion filled performances from it's two leads. Bruce Greenwood And Cary Elwes make this movie feel like a theatre released motion picture. The direction is a little card-boardish but that's forgivable seeing is that this is a made for TV film. I watched twice tonight when it came on, and taped it the second time. I would recommend this movie to any fan of psychology. It goes deep into the mind of a ruthless killer and it never comes back from the edge.
