Movie Info

Jeff Fahey, best known as the star of The Lawnmower Man, headlines director David Fairman's supernaturally-tinged psychological thriller Messages. The actor stars as Richard Murray, a forensic pathologist in charge of the local mortuary, who lost his wife in a tragic road accident. When a series of bodies turns up - all women, and all brutally murdered - the Los Angeles Police Department assigns a detective to the case; meanwhile, Richard grapples with both troublesome memories of his late wife and the discovery that mysterious messages are cropping up on his email server, all apparently originating with the murder victims. As he delves ever deeper into the case, he arrives at the sudden, shocking conclusion that he knew each of the women, and worries that he might have rubbed them out in a drunken state, as he concurrently (and paradoxically) makes valiant attempts to reach the next victim before the killer. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

It's easy to see why this piffle had to be independently financed - no film company executive in its right mind would have touched it with a barge pole.

The horror, the horror: this Brit chiller is a strong contender for worst film of the year.

Quite the worst supernatural thriller ever made starring Jeff Fahey. This is saying something.

It's lit and shot disastrously and, most problematically, it's completely devoid of scares.

If it's spine-chilling horror you're after, move along, but if you're looking for unintentional laughs then this'll take some beating.

A catalogue of horror cinema crimes.
