Entertaining indi thriller
19 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Direct to video movies are usually pretty lame, but I was pleasantly surprised by this picture. I loved the title when I saw it at my local Hollywood video store, so I picked it up. I read the back and it sounded interesting. So I rented it. I wasn't expecting much, because as I said earlier, most direct to video movies are lame. The movie had me entertained throughout. I thought the killer was actually very believable. I don't know about everyone else, but in my opinion a huge hulking man overpowering another person and taking their life is much more believable than some tiny old guy or some skinny little dude that they usually portray as serial killers in movies. I'll put it to you like this, if I ran into this killer in a dark alley, I'd be pretty friggin scared. Anyway, on with the review. You can read the synopsis to know what the story's about, so I'll just tell you that it was a good late night popcorn flick. And I don't think it was trying to be anything more. I enjoyed it and my wife enjoyed it. It had good acting. Especially by Joe Estevez and the Killer. I thought the music was good. It had that sort of industrial Nine Inch Nails vibe to it and the ending was cool. Not your typical Hollywood type ending. Really good for an independent release. It had me wondering how good these filmmakers could do with a budget in the millions. All in all, I liked it enough to add it to my collection of horror movies. Trust me, rent it, sit back and enjoy yourself.
