One of the most predictable and annoying movies I have ever seen. Gallo is horrible, the worst performance. Tara Platt was great, and did not receive any worthy credit! Not sure if it was bad performances, but I'm thinking it was the directing more. A pathetic, boring, copied version of Silence of the Lambs. The villain was way over the top and cliché'. At the end, I wanted to root for someone. It was so unreal it was pathetic. I am shocked someone would give so much money to such a weak screenplay. And I also can't believe that in all the whole galaxy of actors that these people were chosen. The cops were awful and again, Gallo shouldn't even try acting. Michael Imperioli must have been desperate to take this part. I'm sure he was horrified at how bad the directing turned out.

After reading critics reviews "hard to beat," and even "fun," and film warnings that included
"Disturbing wigs," I thought it would be enjoyable, at least mildly. And face it, who isn't curious about "disturbing wigs?" (Halle Berry's- and yes, it was). But this movie grabbed me by the jugular from the onset and never let up. Gruesome, frightening, disturbing, - actually almost made me have to leave to vomit more than once. Do not see if you are squeamish or have a teenage daughter. Particularly with blonde hair. I actually came home and checked my dark closets. This was just CREEPY. Suspenseful? Yes. Taut? Yes. Not badly made, either. Just not the kind of psycho I want embedded in my brain.

I didn't read the reviews on purpose. Often the so called experts ruin a good thing by poo pooing something as less than classic when all we want is an escape for a couple of hours. Well, I sure did get what I wanted out of this 'escape.' It was rip snortin' suspense and excitement and hair tearing involvement with the characters. I nearly cried in several places as the tension heightened. I highly recommend this heart-pounder. If you like fact paced 'good guy trying hard to catch the bad guy before something terrible happens' kinda cinema, then this is your bag!

To think that someone familiar with law enforcement and knowing that a treasure trove of forensic evidence plus the offender is waiting to be picked up would walk away and let him slowly die is unbelieveable. The dynamics of this film was completely off base in the way it went. Even if does suppose a measure of just desserts, it is still a movie that I will neither rent in the future or buy a copy of.

Best movie I have seen in a long time. Not your typical predictable movie. Keeps you in suspense from beginning to end. I liked it so much that i've seen it 3 times. Halle Berry deserves an Oscar for her role, totally an awesome performance. Definitely a must see!
