this thriller will come to theatres around hallowe'en, but i was lucky enough to see an early screening at a local film festival here in calgary

click here for page of trailer links (external - login to view) (i recommend Teaser #1)

this indie film is a first-time effort for both the director and the screenwriter (who also co-stars), so there were traces of novice in the movie - mostly in the editing, but some of the dialogue could have used an objective review - but overall the movie was very enjoyable.

cary elwes manages to fit into this dark story without any effort - a feat which has encouraged me to track down and see him portray the Green River killer...

danny glover plays a (gasp!) cop role that could have (and possibly should have) been filled by a no-name

visually, the director is clearly influenced by the david's (fincher & lynch)

the score is handled deftly by NIN's Charlie Clouser

I plan to see this again when it hits theatres and again when it hits dvd, and i can hardly wait to see what these two names come up with in future productions.

God I loved that twins peaks!!! the whole thing was mesmerizing. I became so obsessed with it, that one christmas I recieved two laura diaries I still play the weird music they had on the show..it goes good with laying in my hammock looking up at the 100 year old pondersoa pine over the fence...a real nice touch is when a few crows land in the tree and start to caw..that eirie cawing...than I start to get a thinking about who really did kill laura? Whats your theory?
