LAPD criminal profiler, Russell Spivey (Mark Thompson) has the toughest job imaginable. All too often, his duty takes him to humanties’ darkest places. Spivey’s uncanny talent: Assessing physical evidence from brutal murder crime scenes & creating viable theories as to why the perpetrator commits to such evil.
In terms of tone, “2:13″ reminds me of “Se7en,” “Anamorph” & “Manhunter.” The chase for the killer(s) is on & it’s a very clever ride. This isn’t your typical, throw-together, low budget horror flick. 2:13 has many layers, textures & nuances. Many of which are so subtle, you’ll need a second viewing.
Technically, the sound design is excruciatingly detailed. Whether it’s a menacing, pulsating & accelerating bass line or the simple familiar sound of pencil writing on a notepad. It’s there & sound adds yet another layer. In the end, the villain in the piece isn’t a Body Snatcher, an alien, a Terminator or even a Great White Shark. It’s the most feared villain of all, is the one who walks right by us in a crowd.
If you’re looking for a suspense thriller peppered with horror, terror & darkness, look no further than 2:13. It’s a well made film. The solid cast includes Kevin Pollack, Teri Polo, Dwight Yoakam & Mark Pellegrino. 2:13 arrives on DVD Tuesday June 28th.
