Storyline

After college graduation, Heck Prigusivac heads home to New Pristina, Montana, to get a few things before driving to Seattle to teach Latin. His mother's alcoholism (she needs care Heck can't afford) and his gene pool get in the way: Heck's father was executed for murder, his brother Chick is on death row at the local penitentiary, and Heck's rare personality profile suggest he'd make an excellent executioner. He reluctantly takes the job as prison "closer." There, his life-long sibling rivalry continues, and he's attracted to Dori Dumchovic, Chick's high school girlfriend and the only woman on death row. Will Heck have to put his lover and his own brother to death? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Characters' last names have been taken from Serbian language - Prigusivac means 'silencer', Bauk is 'boogyman', and Cetnik is a nickname for Serbian military during WW2 or paramilitary units during Yugoslav wars of the 1990s. However, these are never really used as surnames in Serbia or anywhere else. See more »

Dark comedy kinda grows on you
3 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jonathan Tucker (Hostage, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) play Heck, who gets a job as the Closer in a prison. That's a nice term for executioner. His brother Chick (Jonathan Tucker - Dahmer, 28 Weeks Later) is on death row, as is Chick's former girlfriend, Dori (Ginnifer Goodwin - Walk the line).

This movie just gets weird as Heck falls in love with Dori and wants to do the job of his own brother. Heck and Dori manage to have sex in a position that I doubt is in the Kama Sutra - through the cell bars. Getting her pregnant is a way of delaying her execution. I told you this was weird.

If you liked Clay Pigeons or Heathers, then this film is for you.
