Storyline

Doctor Palmer (Rutger Hauer), a former pathologist, wrote a fictional book based on his real cases. In the book, the madman gets caught, but in reality, he is still uncaught. After the book is released, Palmer's editor is kidnapped. Palmer soon is sent a present containing a page of his book, and a bone from his editor. Together with the Police, Palmer tries to find his editor, who might still be alive. In addition, his own son becomes one of the main suspects. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

horror/ thriller?
15 June 2003 | by lenoSee all my reviews

Even though this is not a bad movie it is a bit disappointing. I thought this was a horror/ thriller but I couldn't find any horror (maybe the body parts) And the suspense I hoped for wasn't there so actually it was nothing. Just like Hauer's acting, but why even put in an effort if you haven't got a decent script in five (or more) years..
