Director: Ryuhei Kitamura
Cast: Bradley Cooper, Vinnie Jones, Leslie Bibb
Based on a short story by Clive Barker, so you know what you’re going to get: a tightly constructed thriller swimming in blood and gore.
While some of the plotline is difficult to follow – scenes that simply don’t move the story forward – the film, overall, is a satisfying chiller in which a New York photographer, Leon (Cooper) is drawn into the terrifying world of a manic serial killer, Mahogany (Jones).
The playing is excellent with Jones neatly under-playing his role to great effect and Cooper turning in a solid performance as the snapper determined to track down the killer.
Star Rating: 3/5
