How do you catch a killer who leaves no trace?
A victim killed with a single, precise stab to the heart appears at first glance to be a robbery gone wrong. A caring mother and social worker lost to a senseless act of violence. But for Detective Kim Stone, something doesn’t add up.
When a local drug addict is found murdered with an identical wound, Kim knows instinctively that she is dealing with the same killer. But with nothing to link the two victims except the cold, calculated nature of their death, this could be her most difficult case yet.
Desperate to catch the twisted individual, Kim’s focus on the case is threatened when she receives a chilling letter from Dr Alex Thorne, the sociopath who Kim put behind bars. And this time, Alex is determined to hit where it hurts most, bringing Kim face-to-face with the woman responsible for the death of Kim’s little brother – her own mother.
As the body count increases, Kim and her team unravel a web of dark secrets, bringing them closer to the killer. But one of their own could be in mortal danger. Only this time, Kim might not be strong enough to save them…
The mere mention of Dr. Hannibal Lecter can send shivers down my spine. To me, he’s the ultimate psychopath that I measure every psychopath against. As a fan of psychological thriller, it would take a really evil antagonist to make me pay attention.
It’s hard to catch up on on reading when there are so many wonderful movies out there. Between films and books, I tend to go where the gratification is faster. Though books are arguably more satisfying, there will be times that a brilliant film will come along and just blow you away.
I don’t care if critics say that Ocean’s 8 is an unnecessary spin-off.
You know what’s unnecessary? The Ghostbusters reboot.
This first official photo of the movie was released last month and it’s the epitome of Girl Power. Details are sparse, but here are some of the things we know so far.
This movie was hard to watch but I just couldn’t stop watching.
Nocturnal Animals is the film adaptation of the 1993 novel “Tony & Susan” written by Austin Wright. I didn’t know what the book was about and was probably too young to care back then. While the stellar cast is reason enough to watch the film, it’s Tom Ford that made me want to watch it. This is just Ford’s second film (A Single Man, being his directorial debut), but he has shown a distinct filmmaking style, reminiscent of David Fincher, though much more deliberate and artsy. Nocturnal Animals is part art film, part thriller, and 100% provocative.
