Movie Info

Michael Vaughn's minister father always told him: Better to be an honest nobody than a crooked somebody. But Michael (Richard Sommer) doesn't see the harm in giving people the closure they need with the dead and travels town-to-town professing his abilities as a spirit medium. One night, Michael is kidnapped. With a knife to his throat, Michael suddenly sees the opportunity of a lifetime in his psychologically unstable captor's desperation to make contact with the other side. Intent on saving his floundering career, Michael sets out to become a celebrity TV psychic by solving the mystery of a high-profile crime in the national spotlight.

Critic Reviews for A Crooked Somebody

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

It's always nice when a movie with little to no buzz sneaks up on you like this one did for me.

Oct 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A Crooked Somebody is smarter than the usual thriller.

Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Sommer, who did fine supporting work on TV's "Mad Men," doesn't prove a distinctive or charismatic enough presence to carry an entire film, especially one as uneven as this.

Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Often uncomfortable and all the better for it, "A Crooked Somebody" doesn't mind watching its characters squirm a little. That's tough for them but good for us in this highly enjoyable thriller.

Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…

A satisfyingly crafted entertainment that doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, but does take a few surprising detours from well-trodden genre paths

Top Critic

While poking fun at a broad target, this thriller maintains a moderate level of suspense before falling apart in the convoluted final act.
