Storyline

When Dallas FBI Agent Thomas Mackelway violates serial killer Raymond Starkey's civil rights during an unorthodox arrest, Starkey goes free and Mackelway is demoted to a remote branch of the agency in Albuquerque. His first day on the job, Mackelway investigates the murder of a traveling salesman Harold Speck, which turns out to be the first of three seemingly random killings. Or perhaps they are not random at all; the last to die is Mackelway's nemesis, Raymond Starkey. The assignment consumes him. His past mistakes haunt him. His head throbs constantly as he tries to find the link between the victims that will lead him to their killer. The case becomes increasingly gruesome and patently personal. This does not go unnoticed by his unflappable partner Fran Kulok, who knows of Mackelway's past and the demons that afflict him. Like Mackelway, she becomes drawn into the labyrinth of chilling clues, all of which point to the enigmatic Benjamin O'Ryan. O'Ryan clearly has a connection to ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Excellent supernatural/psychological thriller
10 September 2004 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and I thought the pacing was great. A slightly (expected) corny Hollywood ending, but don't let that get you down.

Comparisons with Seven and the Silence of the Lambs franchise are correct. Also reminded me rather of "The Ring" (US version) in its photography and "flashback"/recollection sequences. Ben Kingsley is excellent as the tortured and almost demonic shadow - delighted to see him finding darker roles at last (Sexy Beast, House of Sand & Fog). Didn't like the FBI characters too much, but overall I thought it was a gripping and well above average attempt at the well-worn serial killer theme. Is Zak Penn related to Sean Penn?? Sorry to be idiotic....
