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

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 »

Peeee Yew!
18 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a real stinker.

For some reason I thought this was actually going to be a real movie. It was within the top 30 pre-leases on Amazon for the week it came out AND it starred one of my all time favorite actors- Jeffrey Coombs.

I had hopes. Hopes that were dashed against a stone within the first five minutes. Jeffrey and the villain had marginally believable characters, but just about everyone else made Denise Richards look like Laurence Oliver. They were just horrible. And not very pretty either. It wasn't like they sacrificed acting ability for looks. I've seen a LOT of bad acting- community theater, Troma movies, high school productions. This ranks below just about all of it.

Like the other reviewer stated, this is definitely an F movie.

The story is a joke as well, although you're so busy being amazed by how bad the acting is, it's hard to scrutinize the plot that closely.

On a happier note, this movie helped me to realize how good most of the stuff I watch is. After this, I'm much more appreciative of actors and their craft. Most actors, that is. Definitely not these.

As far as my fondness for Jeffrey Coombs goes... it's still pretty far up there, but not quite as high as it was.
