Should Have Been Better
9 July 2017 | by oscarstein-97314See all my reviews

A great idea gets lost in this amateurish film. After a pedestrian prelude depicting the shooting deaths of a couple parked on a lovers' lane in 1968 Northern California.

Years later in present day Virginia, where Mick (Shane West) and Zoe Branson (Leslie Bibb) are struggling to make it!

They buy abandoned storage lockers along with their friend. One day they buy a locker and they think they come across contents of the Zodiac killer. Because the case is "Still Open" the reward is still there for the taking.

When they find out who owned the locker there troubles begin and end up playing a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Should have been better.
