Movie Info

A man's past comes back to haunt him -- literally -- in this thriller. After surviving a traumatic auto accident that took the life of a close friend and injured his brother, young Michael Sanford was sent off to a boarding school and didn't see his hometown in California's Sonoma Valley for close to two decades until he returned after the death of his mother. Michael (Brett Cullen) has inherited the family business, a winery, and he and his wife Diane (Tamlyn Tomita) try to build the business as they make a new home. But a psychotic killer has invaded the community, murdering a number of children, and one night Michael drives past the site of the killings and thinks that he sees more bodies. A number of people in town are convinced that Michael has never revealed everything he knows about the auto accident from 20 years ago, and as he tries to tell the police what he thinks he's seen in connection with the sudden rash of child killings, he discovers that he's now a leading suspect in the police's investigation. The Killing Jar also stars Wes Studi, Brion James, and M. Emmet Walsh.more
