About the Movie

Antonio Banderas (DESPERADO), Jonathan Rhys Meyers (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III), and Piper Perabo (THE PRESTIGE) highlight this riveting adaptation of an acclaimed French thriller. As a serial killer’s latest slaying shakes up a remote Colorado town, desperate writer Paul (Banderas) offers drifter Jack (Meyers) shelter at his isolated cabin. Does Jack’s violent behavior make him a suspect in the murders menacing the area? Or is the killer’s story even more terrifying?

Fresh: None of it is earth-shattering, but Goodman gives it muscle and makes it work. – Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter, May 22, 2017

Rotten: Banderas should be in a real King adaptation, not a paraphrase of one. – April Wolfe, Village Voice, Dec 1, 2017

Rotten: Three stars! Well played! But wait, there's one more scene. Look children - it's a falling star. – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, May 26, 2017

Great movie! JRM is FABULOUS as always!!!

Do you like Antonio Banderas?

If the the answer is yes, my guess is you'll like this movie. I like him and I know the ol' lady does, 'cause she told me sometimes she pretends it's him instead of me when we're in the bedroom.
It's not a masterpiece and there is a "thingy" in the storyline (keepin' it vague) that some critics really get backed up about, but it entertained the heck out of us.

The ending ruined it

Rather slow moving the first 45 minutes and the last 20 minutes. But it was the last 2 minutes that ruined the entire experience for me. Rent if you just want to see Antonio Banderas. Not worth buying.
