The kidnapper Luke Devilyn is arrested but is released after his trial due to fails in the evidences. He returns to Graves End, a place where the 666 dwellers welcome ex-cons rejected by other towns. When Luke Devilyn is found dead in the woods nearby the town, agent Rickman notes that the criminals that move to Graves End simply vanish, and he returns to the town for further investigation.

I can't believe he said that
14 September 2008 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Eric Roberts shows of his facial expression once again in this mystery thriller with a serious made for TV-feel to it. So you have the standard peaceful town with a dark secret, and it's up to an FBI-agent not unlike Fred Williamson to figure things out and solve a murder or whatever. The first half of this movie is pretty bad actually, mainly because of the embarrassing attempts at sharp, witty dialogue. What the hell is up with that Maudy character? I just want to kick her in one of her chins every time she opens her mouth. And is there anyone is the world that still addresses people by "doll face"? And let's not get into the supposedly brilliant repartee between the good and the bad guys. Dear God, Steven Seagal gets cooler lines than those. Even considering the quality of the material, the actors are all pretty bad(except maybe for Steven Williams). They get to do a lot of narrating and monologues but they barely have enough skill to make me last more than two lines. I just don't get the feeling they're saying something that's interesting in any way. The worst situations though are when the wife tries to emote, despite the fact that she looks like a retired porno star. The movie can grab itself together just enough to have an entertaining second half, with all kinds of fairly clever plot twists, and the ending is pretty hysterical too. So plotwise I'm okay with it. But that first hour, dear God.
