This action-packed psychological thriller from the producer of cult smash "Timecrimes" takes you into the twisted depths of brutality. This is the human animal at his most terrifying... When a struggling filmmaker, Mickey Gravatski (Wes Bentley), stumbles upon a diabolical serial killer carrying out another of his unspeakable crimes, he turns to blackmail, using footage of this madman in a disturbing new film project. What follows is a nerve-shredding psychological game of cat and mouse between the filmmaker and his dangerous new subject. To save himself, Mickey must confront the darkest side of not only the killer's nature, but his own.
Wes Bentley, takes on a surprisingly similar character to one he plays in American Beauty as a videographer fascinated by the weird side of life and chooses as a documentary subject a serial killer played by Mark Borkowski. - I completely unbelievable scenario but nevertheless a potentially interesting one - The film then follows Borkowski's apparent attempts to get Bentley to understand why he carries out his crimes, even to the extent of getting him to film one of his murders, which to be honest is even more far fetched and pretty boring. There was no sense that the killer might get caught and therefore no tension. At one point Borkowski kidnapps Bentley's Mum to stop him going to the police but her character is such that you can't help thinking; "no loss there then".
