Audience Reviews for Cruel and Unusual

Cruel and Unusual is very great Thriller with Tom Berenger playing a Serial Killer. I have seen couple of his Movies and I was surprised by his perfomance as a Serial Killer. Unlike other of his Movies it was refreshing to see Tom Berenger in a completely different role. And the killing goes on! Watch out why?

Super Reviewer


Not too bad, but a bit predictable. Decent acting, it has its suspenseful moments. Some good cinematography, okay story. Nothing special, one of those middle of the road movies.
