Great concept...nicely produced...could have been better done (several hiccups in the plot/story) interesting representative for the genre of Christian Drama/Christian Horror[?]

I read the book first years ago, and loved the book. Since I knew the twists and turns, I wondered how I would like the movie. It was still enjoyable for me. The movie has lots of twists and turns, and the ending is sure to surprise you.

Wild and insanely great. Everything is truth with subjects from the Bible. I love it and recommend it. It is intense and you will not know who the killer is until almost the very end. It may leave you praying that someone don't turn out to be killer like this one because it could happen considering how evil the world is getting and how the close the rapture of God's children is.

Ugh ... another film that was too good to be true
C Wahlman | Merrillville, IN | 07/08/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I wanted to like this movie. I like horror, psychological suspense films, especially films that also incorporate Christianity (i.e. Lost Souls), but this was something else.

I found the premise to be truly innovative: theology student Kevin is attempting to finish his thesis about the nature of good and evil, when a terrorizing killer, the Riddle Killer (aka RK), selects Kevin as his new victim. "RK" wants Kevin to confess his greatest sin--a sin born of a traumatic childhood Kevin has tried to forget. And even when Kevin "confesses," RK dismisses it as not being his true sin. But what else could Kevin possibly be hiding? His childhood friend Samantha and police psychologist Jennifer have to figure it out before its too late.

Even with some reviews and descriptions of this film giving away a lot more, I was still intrigued. But the film itself has little to do with Christianity, there are few slight references thrown in (so if your apprehension with this film is the possibility of it being too preachy, don't worry you are safe from that). The bad acting made the bad script look worse. Kevin's childhood was too strange and not even explained well until the end. And this explanation seemed a little too easy summed up for my taste. In fact, I think that is why I dislike this movie so much. It is supposed to be intense with so much going on, nothing makes sense, and then suddenly you are told everything so concisely. The plot moves on to wrap up everything else, and then poof! happy ending! 90 minutes devoted to development and red herrings + 10 minutes to divulge everything + 5 minutes of a really stupid ending = 105 minutes of bad film.

I like complex films that make you think, and this film had all the makings of a great thriller. But the execution of a poorly written script and too much non-intriguing intrigue that was not explored sufficiently makes this movie a waste of time. Maybe I will try the book to see if that is a satisfying story."
