Critics Consensus

An implausible, overheated potboiler that squanders a stellar cast, Twisted is a clichéd, risible whodunit.

Movie Info

Philip Kaufman directs the detective thriller Twisted (originally to be titled The Blackout Murders), with a script by up-and-coming filmmaker Sarah Thorp. Ashley Judd plays troubled police detective Jessica Shepard, who works under the jurisdiction of the man who raised her as his daughter, police Commissioner Mills (Samuel L. Jackson). While investigating a serial murder case, Jessica -- who is has a proclivity for dangerous, drunken one-night-stands -- discovers that all of the victims are men whom she's recently bedded. Complicating matters are her bitter ex-boyfriend (Mark Pellegrino), her very curious therapist (David Strathairn), and her odd-behaving new partner Mike Delmarco (Andy Garcia).

    Who done it? Typical in you know there is "twist" coming, but still enjoyable. Something felt very 1990s about the whole movie.

    (2004 Director: Philip Kaufman) Intense suspense thriller starring the lovely Ashley Judd, Andy Garcia, Bill Duke, Samuel L. Jackson, to name a few. Must see! Lots of eye candy and terrific suspense, if a bit of a slutty yet feminist role for Judd. Right on!

    Quite a dark psycological thriller, kept my interest I must say. I do enjoy watching Andy Garica and Samuel L Jackson in movies which is what drew me to this one. Its not the best movie in the world, but I enjoyed the darkness of the film and trying to guess who was to blame.
