A pretty good take on the serial killer story with standout performances from Costner and Hurt. Even Demi Moore was decent here. Some twists where good, others not so much, but overall it was well done.

On the other hand, maybe this picture is too planned, too calculated to the point where it ended up as a complete mess due to its unmanageable gravity. I wish the filmmakers made the story as simple as possible and have gone to the slasher direction. With its bumbling characters and supposed shockers, one can say that it tried to be the next "The Silence of the Lambs" which serves as a character study of a serial killer. Avoid this one if …
