Plot – Spoilers:
A small town cop Hazel is having a hard time dealing with the loss of her baby and stumbles through her daily life. A shot in the arm arrives when an old woman in the neighbourhood is found with her throat slit and an expression on her face like she had been trying to model for an Edvard Munch painting. Soon, more bodies are found with similar expressions of terror and grief and a Christian angle to the killing spree begins to emerge.
I am Catholic. I have never in my 72 years been in a Catholic Church that didn’t have a crucifix prominently displayed on or near the alter. There is a bare cross in the funeral scene.
Nice movie EUM! Thanks for adding this along with the other great movies you have included.
3 stars… max.
Pretty slow, but whatever. I guess the acting was pretty good. 3 stars sounds about right.
