Michael Cudlitz's first leading role is the sole selling point of this repellent character study.

Disappointingly resorts to a reductive dissection of its protagonist in the third reel, but The Grief Tourist benefits from Michael Cudlitz's suitably creepy performance, and is an atmospheric, suspenseful ride.
a deadly serious psychodrama with the emphasis on (finely acted) character, where even the odd transgressive twist serves and illuminates the story's integrity rather than just adding another cheap thrill.
