The Alphabet Killer...

This movie was released on DVD this past Tuesday. We watched it tonight and I have to say we both really liked it. It is well written, acted and a very interesting story line. A teaser for the plot is below. However, I can tell you that this movie will keep you guessing all the way through. Tension, other world visions, and many twist keep you wondering "who did it?" It is a thriller, but the subject matter is very disturbing. Tastefully done, without too much graphic detail, but unnerving at times. The director directed Wrong Turn and the lead actress was also in that movie. I loved Wrong Turn! I highly recommend this movie to all who like a creepy thriller that verges on being horror! check out the trailer below and hit your Netflix Q or go to the video store and get this movie!

Megan Paige (Eliza Dushku) is an investigator for Rochester Police Department who is assigned to investigate the murder of a young girl named Carla Castillo, whose body is found in the nearby town of Churchville covered in cat hair. Against opposition of her colleagues and partner-boyfriend Kenneth Shine (Cary Elwes), Megan insists that the murder is a work of a serial killer. Despite Megan’s considerable efforts, she fails to catch the killer. Stress and obsession of the investigation causes Megan to hallucinate the victim's image. She ultimately has a nervous breakdown and tries to commit suicide.
