A crazy person who knows more than the cops

  • Jun 2, 2011
Rating:
+5
This psychological crime thriller reminds us of the adage – a person can be crazy but not stupid. A detective has a psychological problem that is intensified with stress. She sees and hears things that do not exist. She is working on a case where a young girl is rapped, strangled, and murdered. She becomes obsessed with finding the killer and when, after months of work, she fails to find any results she tries to kill herself. She is hospitalized in a mental institution for two years. When she is released the police department rehires her, but only as a file clerk. She discovers that the killings have begun again after a two year stoppage. Where was the killer during the two years? She persuades the captain to let her tag along with the detectives. She becomes overly stressed again, but does discover who the killer is. But as she makes this discovery, she again loses her mind. What will happen next? Will the killings continue? Will she be able to recover and identify the murderer? The film is filled with suspense and the acting is very good.

About this movie

Wiki

WRONG TURN's Rob Schmidt reunites with actress Eliza Dushku for this horrifying thriller based on a true story. Dushku stars as Megan Paige, a Rochester detective on the disturbing case of the rape and murder of a 10-year-old girl, along with her fianci, Kenneth (Cary Elwes, SAW). Paige notices the repetition of the letter C (the victim is named Carla Castillo and was killed in the town of Churchville), and she thinks that they may be hunting a serial killer. But that isn't all: visions of the dead girl begin to invade her life, and she is sent to a mental hospital for help. When she returns two years later, she has lost her job and her love, but the appearance of a similar case pushes her back into the investigation. However, this time, she sees both Carla and the second victim everywhere she goes. THE ALPHABET KILLER also stars Timothy Hutton, Bill Mosely, and Michael Ironside, as well as screenwriter/producer Tom Malloy.
