The H-61 Killer is leaving a trail of skeletons across the Northern Mid-West. With police baffled, a retired FBI profiler is called in to assist. A seer of the criminal psyche, Saul Aitken (Gabriele Angieri) detects an incipient game. Only to find himself at the center as he's abducted from his hotel. With the profiler as his captive, the killer reveals himself as a teenager named David (Joey Pollari). Ruthless, resourceful and clever, he challenges Aitken to a battle of wits; he must employ the science of profiling to stop David from killing again. Meanwhile the task force builds a trail with the help of FBI Special Agent, Rachel Cade (Emily Fradenburgh). With her own kind of ruthlessness, she fights to avenge the victims but now she must do so with a hostage in the equation. The cat and mouse reaches a climax as David lashes out at the authorities. Now facing their wrath, his game begins to unravel. But he still has the profiler as his hostage... and every game needs a final round. Written by Caspian Tredwell-Owen

Intense crime/psychological thriller
3 April 2013 | by d-bergh-1See all my reviews

My entire family loved the movie, including my 13-year old actress daughter! Very gripping, very intense. It quickly captures your attention immediately and never lets your attention wander for a second. Everyone involved did an excellent job! It was clearly on par with any top Hollywood film. I expect it to do very well! I rarely bother to comment on a film, but this one is truly worth your time. We originally went because it was a local film and we knew some of the actors. We never expected it to be so amazing! Every actor did fantastic. The young boy, who was one of the leads, had so many layers and depth to his performance. He alternated from exhibiting one set of personality traits, to quickly flipping to being completely the opposite in a very believable way. The other lead also had much depth and many layers. All of the actors were very believable, and the script, the scenes, the props, the lighting - everything - was very professionally done. There was no "small, local movie" feel to any of it.
