Essentially an X-files episode that wishes it were as disturbing and visually arresting as David Fincher's Seven (it's not).
| Original Score: .5/4

...one of those seemingly foolproof flicks that just doesn't work...

The self-consciously arty thriller is a sort of one-size-fits-all audience horror orgy, with an intriguing mix of fixations

A poor man's 'Silence of the Lambs' crossed with 'Insomnia.' And that makes it at least a decent popcorn movie.

The whole thing would have been over a lot quicker if they had only called in Mulder and Scully.

Suspect Zero is trying so hard to be deliberately stylish that it forgets there's an interesting premise underneath all that vanity.

Merhige treats the laughable plot as if it were high existential drama. He smothers what might have been a solid B picture in relentless art-house pretension.

The film is undeniably flawed, yet the things that work do so beautifully.

The mood is spooky, the murk ominous.

...bogged down by stereotypical characters and haphazard direction.

Another serial-killer mystery in which no one gets out alive, least of all its clueless leads.

Merhige gets plenty of mileage out of these visions and the creepy, metallic sound design and score, almost managing to snuff out the film's more ordinary attributes.

The real drama of the story is pretty much background for a conventional thriller.

Suspect Zero hits the middle ground, with a modestly compelling storyline ...

In the end, Suspect Zero is more interesting as filmmaking than it is as a thriller.

What a mess. What in the world is this stupid miasma supposed to be?

Another in a long line of second-rate serial-killer flicks.

Dramatically, Zero is a fiasco, recklessly bouncing around logic and coherence like a pinball.
