    The filmmakers are clearly most interested in re-creating the murders in a gruesome and repugnant fashion. It's a shame the film is so exploitative, because Howell and especially Turturro deliver chilling, all too convincing performances. show more

    Sordid and sleazy, although the lead performances are hard to fault. show more
