A young sheriff's deputy, Zoe Adams, investigates a series of murders and soon realizes a serial killer is on the loose. As she and her boss, sheriff Jimmy Fleck, feel the pressure of finding the killer, their love affair begins to falter. Meanwhile, Zoe teams up with the autistic bloodhound trainer, Leroy Calhoun, and together they start connecting the dots between the killer's mysterious clues.

But when Zoe learns that she is the ultimate object of the killer's obsession, will the dysfunctional Leroy be able to save her before it's too late? Written by Roel Reine

Brutal... are the critics
6 October 2007 | by tradeczarSee all my reviews

I was a bit surprised at the venom from those who did not like this movie. Perhaps they were looking for something else. As much as I like Jeffery Comb's work in absurdist gems such as the "Reanimator" films, I was impressed with his portrayal of the sheriff. The comic interludes -- such as the car door scene -- were extremely well-timed. And casting Michael Berryman as the gentle but somewhat ODC dog handler was a stroke of genius. But as another commenter observed, the most impressive feature of the film was the character development. Rare is the slasher flick that lets you identify with its lead characters. Give this movie a try.
