If Detective Mark Ryan ever wanted to see someone executed, then serial killer William Charles Lee, who killed Ryan's wife, but even that doesn't satisfy him. After five years of complaints against Ryan, the bitchy Community Relations official gets him banished as 'liaison' to the prestigious college's campus police.

This movie was on TV one night when I couldn't sleep and I honestly wish that I just stayed staring at my bedroom ceiling rather than watch it.
It's maybe the most obvious thriller I have ever seen. You should see the twist that is coming to you at the end from halfway through at the absolute latest due to far less than subtle foreshadowing and you can predict the rest of the plot from that point onward. They don't seem to make any attempt to rationalise the obvious impossibilities they expect the watcher to swallow in the name of 'science'.
Katherine Heigl is still great, just a shame she wasted her time on such a pointless movie.
