Imagine Dexter with military training
19 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The reason Dexter is so popular, IMHO, is because he's a sympathetic and plausible character who happens to be doing horrifying things. The same is true of Rick (Andrew Walker), the lead in this film.

Rick is a man raised with solid American values, who was trained as a "special interrogator" in Iraq. He does and experiences things there that cause him PTSD. When he is debriefed by a therapist (Doc), strange things begin to be revealed, and as the creepiness factor starts to rise we realize that all is not as it seems.

I rank this 9 out of 10 because it has superb acting, plot, message and surprise factor. The Torturer is particularly scary because it could really happen.
