From the twisted mind of Jennifer Lynch (HISSS, SURVEILLANCE), the daughter of acclaimed director David Lynch, comes one of the most violent and psychologically disturbing films of the year. When eight-year-old Tim (Eamon Farren of X: NIGHT OF VENGEANCE) and his mother, Sarah (Julia Ormond of TV’s MAD MEN, TV’s LAW & ORDER: CI), get picked up by a psychopathic cab driver named Bob (Vincent D’Onofrio of FULL METAL JACKET, TV’s LAW & ORDER: CI), it ends up being their last ride together. Bob murders the young boy’s mother and keeps Tim as his unwilling protégée, making him clean up the mess following each murder he commits. Years later, as a teenager, Tim must choose whether to follow in Bob’s serial killer footsteps or break free. Also starring, Jake Weber (DAWN OF THE DEAD), Gina Phillips (JEEPERS CREEPERS), and Evan Bird (TV’s THE KILLING).
Great Serial Killer Flick
This is a very well-done serial killer movie. It delves more into why the man became a serial killer and the horror of the young boy being "raised" by him. This is probably one of the best serial killer flicks of all time. Totally twisted.
Sick and twisted and excellent performance...something missing though so only 4 stars.
This film's premiss had the potential to make it an absolute bombshell of a thriller. Unfortunately it's originality was overshadowed by its total lack of identity. The killer could have been a monster, but we're supposed to sympathize with him somehow. The captive was unimpressive in his suffering, and the twist at the end was out of nowhere and unexplainable. It's too bad because this film could have been one of those movies that mess you up for life. Instead it tried too hard to be too much... FYI: Vincent D'Onofrio was amazing as usual.
