Serial killer flicks are a dime a dozen lately, and in certain cases I mean that literally (I'm looking at You, Ulli Lommel). However, every now and again one that looks like a winner gets thrown into the pack. The stand-out this time is a little film called Two:Thirteen, and its trailer just hit the web.
What is Two:Thirteen, you ask? Well, let's take a look at the official synopsis, shall we?
"A police profiler has just returned from psychiatric leave only to find that he is caught up in the rampage of a serial killer who has a love of Shakespeare. Fighting to keep buried the trauma of his childhood, the profiler must confront the all too-familiar flesh masks that the killer leaves on the faces of his victims. He must face his own demons along with the killer to save his small eroding existence."

Along with her college professor and author husband (Snell), Bryn moves into the charming old Beacon Apartments. There, she begins to see a boy who died in a fall down the Beacon's elevator shaft while trying to escape his abusive father. With the help of an eccentric young professor (Urie), Bryn tries to save the boy's spirit. Ironside plays a tough career cop who has adopted the residents.
