About this movie

Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef (Susan Sarandon) is used to leading a quiet life in a small town, with her mother (Ellen Burstyn), her painkillers, and an occasional drink. But when she stops on a routine call to check on a neighbor, she stumbles across a gruesome murder that shatters her peaceful existence. With the help of Detective Ray Greene (Gil Bellows) and a new transfer cop (Topher Grace), she unearths a series of killings across the country with similar, grisly crime scenes. When a local priest (Donald Sutherland) suggests there may be a link to an ancient ritual, Hazel finds herself on the trail of a religious serial killer following a deadly, higher calling. Based on the novel by Inger Ash Wolfe, it's a dark, twisted journey to the shadowy landscape between faith and fear.

I liked it. It wasn't predictable and it kept me wondering throughout. I like to think that's the essence of being "entertained." I've always liked Susan Sarandon and the many emotions she brings to the screen. Having Ellen Burstyn and Donald Sutherland in their roles was special, along with this avenger of his brother. It was nice to see the story was completed ... with his brother no longer there.

Don't waste your time and money. I lost count of how many times I laughed because it was so dumb. Pill poppin, alcoholic, with a jacked up back investigator/ police officer. Smh

This movie is really bad. Nothing exciting happened during the whole movie. I finished watching it only because I made the mistake of buying it. Wish I could get my money back.
