My rating: 5/10
Will I watch it again? Nope.
This sure doesn't feel like it's from the same guy that made SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE (2000), one of my favorite horror flicks. That picture is a work of art. This one is...well, it's got a different type of serial killer than we're used to but gee whiz is it slow as molasses on a winter's day. Man. I dig the lead actors and they do a pretty good job but by the time you get to the end of the picture you're really ready to go. I felt like jumping into the screen and pulling the trigger myself. Woof. I really dig a good serial killer movie and I don't mind a slow, leisurely paced film but this one really tested my patience. Clint Mansell's droning score didn't help, either.
