Storyline

There has always been a thin line between society and the media, and struggling TV-news reporter Roseanne Crystal is about to cross it. She travels to the quiet town of Rhinebeck, New York to cover the story of local hero cop, Gary Whitlock. While shooting background footage, she and her crew accidentally discover a grisly murder scene. At first, it seems like a random violent crime, but when another body is discovered, signs point to a possible serial killer. Sensing a hot story, Roseanne broadcasts a series of sensational reports that send the small town into a tailspin, which prompts everyone to ask the question: Who is more dangerous, the serial killer or the reporter who made him famous?

A dark comedy : Media vs. the Masses
26 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a dark comedy on the effects the media has on society. The film could be used as a guise of educating the masses on the dangers of the media. How what we consider news affects the masses. The directors of this film mix humor and horror to set the mode of what could happen to a little sleepy town invaded by the one eye bandit, that being the camera which is a main character in the film, that doesn't say much but sees all. The format at times feels like a reality show with the camera always on, capturing every moment. Just like those shows, the viewer is compelled to watch this voyeuristic film. Lauren Vélez plays television reporter Roseanne Crystal. Her character is our guide so to speak that allows us to join in and follow along in the story. Vélez delivers a stellar performance along with Erik Jensen and Kelly AuCoin. Like the urge to look through a stranger's medicine cabinet the viewers at times will feel, I think like they are intruding on these people's lives but we will continue to watch like a pepping tom through a window. Rich with interesting characters and comedic moments this film keeps the audience guessing until the very end. In the wake of every television show being made into a movie this film is a refreshing original masterpiece that the audience can really enjoy.
