User Reviews

Dark and gritty crime story!
13 July 2015 | by movieslickSee all my reviews

When you've been a desk jockey for so long it has to be hard to get out on the street to find a serial killer who does nothing but taunt you at every turn. This is the case for Detective Mathews and as he gets sucked deeper and deeper into the investigation he begins to unravel to the point of self destruction of his entire life. His wife has had enough of his drinking and never being home and even when he is home its like he isn't there because his head is focused only on his case and nothing more. Hans Hernke's portrayal of Detective Matthews is what holds this movie together. His performance is dark and gritty and what independent film making is all about. A cat and mouse detective story that delivers the goods.
