Audience Reviews for Edge of Madness
Edge of Madness (Anne Wheeler, 2002) Historical drama/mystery set in nineteenth-century frontier Canada about a woman (Devil's Caroline Dhavernas) who walks into a sheriff's office and confesses to murdering her husband (Final Destination's Brendan Fehr), and the investigation that follows. Enjoyable, if somewhat slight, and most of the relationships never quite rang true for me (the exception is that between the alleged murderess and the lead investigator); how much you can overlook that likely determines how much you'll end up liking it. Would have been better with a slightly less predictable ending, but you can't find many of those these days. ***
This movie is very slow-moving, but also quite interesting. I never quite decided exactly what happened, and most of the characters didn't come across as trustworthy or honest, but that was the basis of the movie's appeal. I just wish it hadn't dragged so much, because otherwise it would have been a great film.
Not much of a mystery despite being labeled as such, a period drama would describe it better. Solid acting and cinematography, everything in this movie looks authentic. Unfortunately the story seems to get a bit muddled towards the end.
