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

Yes this film is one of the greatest pieces of suspenesfull movie-making being shown in cinemas for a long time now. I love the set up of a hospital pathologist getting messages form the dead that indicate to the police that he might well be the local serial killer.

And worse still, by the end of the film the pathologist ( Jeff Fahey) starts to believe these rumours and begins to believe that he could himself be the killer...Supporting actors of Marty Kove and Bruce bring strong supernatural element to the film, while Jon Morrey and Kim Thomson fight it out in some of the last scenes. Also some really Great strong Directing and suitably spooky and emotional score from Paul Turner,

A great psychological thriller with some really deep emotional drama

The denournment was most unpredictable....I enjoyed this one very and would strongly recommend it
