Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People, Made in Heaven) stars in the direct-to-video psychological thriller The Kovak Box. He portrays David Norton, a novelist and control freak who builds his life around the strategic manipulation of his characters and storylines. But suddenly, Norton watches his own life spin rapidly out of control when he is plunged into a bizarre series of events. Upon arrival in an exotic Mediterranean locale for a business conference, Norton receives the devastating news that his wife just received a mysterious phone call and subsequently threw herself from the balcony of their apartment building. One at a time, each of Norton's friends and family members suffer from the same inexplicable fate.

Top Critic

A straight-faced and reality-based piece of "old-school" science fiction, the kind that's more concerned with concepts like mind control and the power of suggestion than it is flashy chases or explosions.

Audience Reviews for The Kovak Box

A slow and confusing long burn that pays off a tad in the end but there's a lot of wasted effort to get there,if you get there.

(** 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] A bit too silly for me, but I can't deny it kept my attention throughout. A near-miss.

Alot of people didn't appreciate the ending of this movie...But let's face it people... Does the good guy always have to win? This movie was unique in that sense. I mean... The dirty old bastard got what he wanted and the movie kept you locked and in suspense. The girl in this movie is hands down gorgeous and to think she actually didn't know an ounce of English before this role. Great acting all around. Great story. Hands down the most unique movie I've ever seen.
