Trivia

Reshoots a year later caused a few unforeseen problems. One of the main ones was that 'Clifton Collins Jr' had shaved off all his hair and mustache for another role so he had to wear a wig and a false mustache for his redone scenes. See more »

Goofs

When Corey checks his revolver all the primer pockets are empty and there is some light on the inside, meaning that the revolver is loaded with empty shell casings rather than cartridges. See more »

Strong First Half And Then It Drops
26 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A recently widowed detective (Dennis Quaid) still grieving over his wife's death discovers a shocking connection between a serial killing spree and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

The film starts out strong, with a great atmosphere and some nice gore effects with things like extracted teeth and whatnot. And the film seems to be inspired by "Seven", which is a good thing... and in many ways I feel they captured that film's vibe.

But then, they just started copying it outright (the landlord with the "good tenant", "he pays the rent") and the suspension rig custom-made compared to the strap-on dagger... and the religious themes (four here rather than seven).

And later on still... it turns into a story about a brother's inability to accept his sibling's homosexuality. Why? That is a completely different movie entirely.

I will let viewers fin out on their own what happens in the second half... but be warned that this film has a problem keeping up the intensity, and it is no surprise it went straight to video after major re-shoots and extensive editing.
