Storyline

Among Brothers is based on the actual events surrounding a cold case. Names are changed for protection. On November 9th, 1994, Jennifer Matthews, a senior at Bergan State University in South Carolina, was found dead in her burned down apartment.

There was no presence of smoke in Jennifer's lungs, she died before the fire- someone had killed her and tried to cover it up. Written by Anonymous

Risky but paid off
8 June 2005 | by tyler4allSee all my reviews

I saw this movie at Worldfest in Houston and the room was packed. The director and a couple of his actors did a really good job of promoting their film. It was a very risky venture to tell the story from the viewpoint of the killer but it worked, in a big way thanks to the outstanding work from Matt Mercer ( in the lead role ) and Corey Cicci. Very good acting. A series of flashbacks well placed during the movie, lace it with a foreboding sense of dread. Disturbing at some points, yet necessary, they remind you of the gravity of these people's actions and how what they did affected this woman's family. Pay attention to the soundtrack too...it tells a story on its own. Definitely worth checking out.
