Storyline

Detective Burt Williams has been on the trail of the infamous "Poe killer" for nearly three years. The most recent abduction of fashion model Heather Makepiece prompts state authorities to bring in the FBI. Burt's daughter Kris Williams, a homicide agent for the FBI, along with her partner Sean Michaels take over. Burt reluctantly steps down from the case and retires. For the next seven months the "Poe Killer" continues his murderous rampage, until Kris discovers that the killer uses internet chat rooms to seduce his prey. She logs in as Annabel Lee and sure enough, he contacts her. With the help of Larry the tech guy, she sets up a meeting at a nearby bowling alley. But, when things go wrong and Kris is abducted and her partner Sean is slaughtered, it becomes a race against time for Burt and ex-partner Grace Andrews to find Kris before she becomes the next victim of the "Poe Killer".

Dead end road
9 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I feel quite opposite compared to the other comments posted on this website. The movie i feel was on a lower budget, causing the actors, and camera to seem not as high end budget. The plot of the movie was very unique i felt, far different than most other films that i have seen. The actors i felt did deliver a scariness to the movie. I feel that the scenes in the house was the scariest. The whole new age Poe concepts was set up kinda neat. and there was a lot of gore and killing in th9is movie. it started out well and finished well. I liked it! if THE movie had a sequel it would be neat to see how it ended. The camera work was different and interesting. The setting and the set up for the film was better than most indie films. I think Jeff Burton did a good job casting and directing the film.
