Storyline

A young sheriff's deputy, Zoe Adams, investigates a series of murders and soon realizes a serial killer is on the loose. As she and her boss, sheriff Jimmy Fleck, feel the pressure of finding the killer, their love affair begins to falter. Meanwhile, Zoe teams up with the autistic bloodhound trainer, Leroy Calhoun, and together they start connecting the dots between the killer's mysterious clues. With Zoe's determination and Leroy's amazing mathematical talents, they eventually solve the riddle and track down the ingenious murderer. But when Zoe learns that she is the ultimate object of the killer's obsession, will the dysfunctional Leroy be able to save her before it's too late? Written by Roel Reine

Did You Know?

Goofs

Aster flower does not have 21 petals; as any biologist knows, every single aster flower has exactly five petals. What is commonly perceived as an aster flower, is in fact a large inflorescentia composed of dozens of small flowers, tubular (with all five petals fused together to form a pipe) at the centre of the inflorescentia, ligular (where the fused petals form a small tongue, resembling a single flower petal) at the perimeter. The plant family to which an aster belongs, known nowadays as "Asteraceae" (aster-likes), was once labeled "Compositae" (composed) to underline this. See more »

To Watch or Not to Watch
16 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is promoted on the DVD cover as "Hostel Meets The Silence of The Lambs"....all I can say is.... that is a stretch of proportionate means, however, it holds your interest due to its campiness. It would've been better had the movies taglines matched its content. The female deputy detects clues that a elementary school kid could've figured out.

Alfred Hitchcock once said a viewer must develop empathy with the characters to care about what happens to them. When watching this movie, you know who's next and you really don't care.

But, while the movie leaves a lot to be desired, I think the makers must've realized, one hopes, the lemon that they were handed and attempted to turn it into lemonade, but without the sugar. Think campy when/if you watch and its like watching Fargo over and over again. At first you're horrified, then all you can do is laugh. Don't expect it to be clever and you won't be so disappointed.
