In the bathroom crime scene there are two candles burning. M.J. asks the coroner for the time of death, which he claims to be eight hours ago. It is unlikely that the candles could have been burning for such a long time. See more »
Stylish at times, but overall a predictable and dull thriller
This is a suspense thriller that is more dull and boring than actually entertaining and thrilling. Maybe it's because it's a bit outdated or something, but nothing about it really stood out or got me into scared mode or anything like that. While watching it, I was expecting at least some cool surprises or twist but nothing of that happened. Instead I was left with a cliché thriller about a copycat killer that copies the methods of other past serial killers. None of the characters are even remotely interesting, even the serial killer in this. During the whole time I was checking the time to see when this movie is going to end, cause it seemed a lot longer than it's running time. It did have it's moments though and some aspects of it was crafted pretty well. Besides that it's a predictable thriller with nothing spectacular.
