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?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Thanks to tight direction by Brian Goodman and lively performances from Antonio Banderas and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, the film's engaging even when it's ridiculous.
Fresh: None of it is earth-shattering, but Goodman gives it muscle and makes it work.
Rotten: Banderas should be in a real King adaptation, not a paraphrase of one.
Rotten: Three stars! Well played! But wait, there's one more scene. Look children - it's a falling star.
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.
