Storyline

In England, the American pathologist Dr. Richard Murray still grieves the death of his wife Carol eight months ago in a car crash. He is drinking too much whiskey due to his guilty complex since he had a love affair with a woman when Carol left home, and he has frequent blackouts, forgetting what he has done in the previous drinking night. Meanwhile a serial-killer is attacking women in the location, and the experienced American cop DCI Collins and the psychologist Frances Beale are invited to help the local police in the investigations. When Dr. Murray receives messages from beyond, he meets his friend Father Randall seeking spiritual support and explanation. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

What's with the music?
18 August 2019 | by eddie-32826See all my reviews

Through the entire film, except for maybe a few minutes here and there, all I could hear was the music. Not a soundtrack as such, but the same piano type tracks, that overlapped other scenes.

At some points, you could barely hear what the actors where saying, though in some cases, that may have been a blessing.

Basically, the pathologist's wife died in a crash a few months back, and there is a serial killer on the lose. There are quite a few well known faces in the film, but nothing to shake a stick at. The main cop played by Martin Kove was so annoying, I was praying he'd be the next victim. Then there are a few fight scenes, that the sound effects sound like they're punching a tin roof, or like those old-style martial art films, as in the sound.
