A remake of the 1980 film, starring Elijah Wood as a serial killer, shot from his character's POV. I haven't seen it yet but I plan to give it a spin before the end of the month smile.gif

(I haven't seen the original)


I'm intrigued. smile.gif

Aside from maybe the ending, there is nothing about this movie that I remotely dislike. My wife and i both loved it.

Darth, you sure you didn't mistakenly watch this instead:
