About the Movie
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).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It boasts no character insight, social commentary or discernible overall point to counter charges that this is just a redundant wallow in arted-up, torture-porn cruelty.
Fresh: Lynch...presents nuanced, sepia-tinged menace with a clear and determined eye.
Fresh: In this claustrophobic cabbie horror, Jennifer Lynch makes us captive passengers as she traces a chain of domestic abuse to its bitter Oedipal end.
Fresh: A grimmer-than-grim tale of murder, incarceration and mayhem.
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.
Wow. This is what it seems it will be, till it isn't. Watch this, it'll keep you glued. Great flick.
