The forensic psychiatric Sally Rowe is called by Detective Martin Mackenzie to analyze the profile of the teenager Alex Forbes, who was found in a train station holding the body of his schoolmate Nigel Colby and with powder in his hand. Alex discloses his relationship with Nigel, who believes that they were descendants of the Templar Knights, and how Nigel used the power of his mind to control him. Mackenzie believes that Alex is the killer, but Susan investigates the family of Nigel under pressure of Alex's father, and finds that all of them belong to an ancient and powerful secret society.Written by

The division between filming this picture in England and Australia in like terms was not actually this neat in actual terms. Some scenes and sets were inevitably split between countries and the challenges for Nigel Bluck's cinematography and Steven Jones-Evans' production design departments were considerable. And this is not to even mention the weather and matching continuity of light and season between the different northern and southern hemispheres. See more »
When Alex reads Nigel's book and looks at Nigel's family tree, Nigel's last name is spelled Colbie. However, when he is reading the newspaper at the end, Nigel's name is spelled Colby. See more »
Like many people have already written here, the cover didn't speak well of the movie; but the movie spoke well of the movie...
Alex (Eddie Redmayne) is charged with murder...of a murder he did or didn't do? Alex begins telling forensic psychiatric Sally Rowe (Toni Collette) about Nigel, the dead schoolmate Alex is charged of murdering. Alex tells her about Nigel's behavior and relationship with Alex...and what deep roots both boys share. Rowe begins to dig in deep more- and finds a truth that is hard to believe, a truth that CAN'T be a truth. - with it's fascinating background (historically accurate or not), it catches you and doesn't want to let go. And the ending- don't get me started on it! With the twists and the truth springing out- you are in for some dark fun.
