NEVERMORE (2007) ** JUDD NELSON, VINCENT SPANO, JENNIFER O'DELL, SIDI HENDERSON. Middling yet affective neo-noir w/Hitchcockian underpinnings potboiler about a gradually drifting into madness self-made businessman/genius type (Nelson looking like an unmade bed, yet arguably the best thing about the film) who enlists his estranged college roommate (Spano, a bit one-note) who is visiting for a seminar on drama, to prove his trophy wife former escort girl (O'Dell, equally stiff/bland)is trying to drive him mad for his fortune. A decent effort overall by rookie filmmaker Thomas Zambeck who clearly loves the genre and does the best with a bare bones budget but makes up for it in spades with production design & moxie to spare; familiar and a bit forgettable except again for the unhinged, manic Nelson.
