Officer Bannerman is assigned to watch after the police station with two other officers during the night. Things go routinely until a person is brought into holding, who is supposedly responsible for over thirty "Silence of the Lambs"-style killings. Now, as things go from odd to frightening, Bannerman must determine just who is who because this Cajun killer may be more than just a mere cannibal. Written by bioguyver43

As Creepy As It Gets!
4 July 2008 | by SylSee all my reviews

The female cop in a small police headquarters is to spend the night with two male police officers, Mattingly and Miller. Don't forget the serial killer and cannibal who has killed as many as 32 victims is held up in the holding cell upstairs being guarded by one of her male counterparts. Strange things start happening once she looks at his file of terror regarding scenes of a young woman being tortured. This serial killer is as close to a monster as you can get. Lights go out and there seems to be trouble. The doors are locked to get outside the police station. Mattingly and Miller are acting stranger and the monster under the black blanket appears to be either dead or has run away. The female police officer must deal with the department's sexism and her superior's doubts about the strange ongoings at the police station. She faces her fear of the monster by doing something both admirable and destructive at the end.
