  • Jolie is inspired casting. She plays the role like a gathering storm, moving from terror to a fierce resolve. And Eastwood, at the peak of his artful powers, tightens the screws of suspense without ever forgetting where the heart of his film lies. show more

  • A disturbing film about grim subject matter, but the overall experience is more exhilarating than saddening. There's just something satisfying about seeing a movie so well made. show more

  • While the neo-Gothic tale is inherently intriguing, the film should inspire strong emotion, but deliberate pacing and a contained sense of melodrama make it a surprisingly passive experience. show more

    WHAT A GOOD MOVIE, I AGREE THAT THE FACT THAT IT WAS BASED ON A TRUE STORY MAKES IT THAT MUCH BETTER. A LITTLE KNOWN FACT IS THAT THE AREA WHERE THE RANCH WAS AT THAT TIME WAS CALLED WINEVILLE, THE CITY CHANGED IT BECAUSE OF THE BAD PUBLICITY. ITS NOW KNOWN AS MIRALOMA. EASTWOOD IS THE BEST

    It is mind-boggling that this is a true story. How is it that I have never heard of it before, like any other well-known Hollywood crime, or famous serial-killer? The movie would not have even been good if it were not based on true events, because it would have been unbelieveable that such things could really happen (outside of science-fiction).
