Composer: Ross Vannelli

Tagline: How do you catch a killer you've already caught?

Plot: A slow, quiet Christmas Eve night at the police station turns into strange horror after a man enters claiming he wants to confess to murder.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again?  No.

Kilmer is close to sleeping his way through this picture.  I'm not saying he slept with someone to get the role but rather he's so laid back and quiet that he's practically asleep.  This dull thriller suffers a lot from the pacing.  Kilmer doesn't seem to care so why should the viewer?  He's the focal point after all.  The other actors seem like they're earnest with their acting.  I guess they made out best because they're all getting to do a picture with Val Kilmer.  The story isn't that bad and it's a shame the film turned out to be so slow.   If this were handled by a major studio that threw some money at it and gave it more experienced talent behind the camera (and some in front), this could've been a lot better.
