For three years, F.B.I. Profiler Cyrus Vendelin has been on the trail of a serial killer obsessed with identity, and the destruction thereof. Leonard Marshall Eccleston abducts his methodically selected victims, and proceeds to free them of their fabricated lives and identities. In his twisted mind, their deaths signal their rebirth into new ones. As a criminal profiler, Vendelin must project himself into the mind of a psychopath. In order to catch a killer, he must think like him, see like him, feel like him. Though, where Vendelin ends, and Eccleston begins is a dark, shadowy place that none dare perceive. Will Vendelin be able to bring an end to Eccleston's madness before he claims another victim in the young and beautiful Jennifer Watson? Over the course of this night, one will see exactly what he has become, and discover his true identity. Amidst all of this, F.B.I. Special Agent Christopher Mannix heads up a bureau task force to hunt down the night's darkest, most dangerous ... Written by Nicholas J. Michalak

Special footage was shot for the film's final trailer involving Charlie Jensen and Laura Wettingfeld. This scene was originally scripted for the purposes of auditioning actresses for the Jennifer Watson role. Eric Woltman of Voltage Visual Studios was the Director of Photography and Gaffer for this shoot. The full scene will appear alongside other specially shot scenes (both scripted and improvised) in a companion web series debuting on RavensFilm Productions' YouTube Channel, and later, on the film's DVD release. It is the only footage shot in high definition. See more »

Dark Thriller with a tip of the hat to Mann
24 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Slick B&W film that captures a bit of Manhunter, Collateral and Miami Vice. Well constructed first film from Nick Michalak gives a tip of the hat to his primary cinematic influence - Michael Mann. Interesting camera work and a dark, foreboding script with a nice twist ending. Check out the prologue and epilogue scenes which give some more background on the story. Some great performances from Charlie Jensen and J. Preston Taub drive the plot, Laura Wettingfeld does an admirable job playing the thankless victim of the story, and the guy who plays Vendelin is effective as well - more of a shadowy apparition then a flesh & blood FBI agent. For a low budget indie, this delivers the goods.
