decent slasher that doesn't quite live up to its great opening scene
The pre-credits scene is the best scene in the movie. A woman takes her car through a car wash. We glimpse a figure through the translucent window looking in on the car wash, and through the suds covering the car windows. A figure wearing a mouthless white mask swings an axe at the front windshield, killing the driver. Her blood drips down the window with the soap suds.
Following the credits, we meet computer geek and freelance electronics repairman Gerald. He and a friend stop by a restaurant/bar and Gerald meets Lillian, a video game nut. They start a relationship, and he gives her one of his old computers so they can instant message each other. Meanwhile, bodies are turning up: mostly women, but even a decapitated pig and a dead dog.
One suspect is a workman at the church (Lillian's father, I think). Lillian tells Gerald she fears her brother Charlie might have something to do with it. She says after she accidentally caused him to fracture his skull he was hospitalized and she hasn't heard what become of him since.
There are some good scenes involving the discovery of bodies or just body parts and a scene involving blood dripping from the ceiling. The killer's attack scenes are fairly good. What happens in between isn't as good, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to pick up a cheap ex- rental copy of this and to watch it.
Unfortunately, the end credits do not identify the actors and their characters. Some actors are named in the opening credits, but the end credits identify only the crew.
