Storyline

Outside a mountain town grappling with a series of abductions and murders, Paul (Antonio Banderas), a reclusive writer, struggles to start what he hopes will be a career-saving screenplay. After a tense encounter at a diner with a drifter named Jack (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), Paul offers Jack a place to stay-and soon the edgy, demanding Jack muscles his way into Paul's work and the two men begin a jagged game of one-upmanship that will bring at least one tale to an end.

A fun little story that will impress you. If you think you can figure out where the movie is headed based on the trailer, you're wrong. Don't read up on it, just watch it. You'll be glad you did.

I'm purposely not mentioning specifics because the less you know about the film, the better.
