A dark story well told
11 March 2008 | by Pat100See all my reviews

A murder mystery which may have come from a TV series but which stands alone satisfactorily.

The acting is very good from all the characters. The characters themselves are all believable and behave in a realistic fashion.

The plot is a bit gruesome but then I suppose that is in the nature of murder. It had me guessing for quite a while.

The only thing that spoilt it for me is when the heroine is subjected to an attack but never mentions it to anyone! That was the only bit that spoilt the realism of the film for me.

Some plot twists are a bit contrived but I was able to swallow them and still enjoy the piece.
