After establishing a pattern from the killings, Inspector Noble, the police investigator, will theorize that only one person, a serial or thrill killer, maybe responsible for all of the murders. Junior is aware of the killings but it doesn't seem to bother him, unlike most ordinary people who have heard of the news about a serial killer roaming the city. Together with Trixie's friend Toti, Junior and Trixie head to the countryside where Trixie's family live. Junior gets to meet Martha, Trixie's weird mother, a tough lady with a shotgun always on her side. Junior also gets to know Max, Trixie's weird brother, a war-scarred former Marine soldier who's got traces of insanity. Martha's rejection of Junior is evident from the start.

Cesar Montano - don't fool us
29 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie Ligalig was released for DVD rental this month here in the US. I was able to see it over the weekend. I was really disappointed. It's a shame for him and wife Sunshine to claim that he came up with this story. He copied the whole thing from a French movie i saw last year titled 'HIGH TENSION". It was released here in the US as DVD rental movie. I wish Cesar would have just made the movie but should have advertised it as a copy then i would not be very upset and disappointed in him. Oh boy, it's really a shame. I hope someone would be able to send this message to him. I guess, he thought no one would see the French movie and went on claiming he came up with this story.
