Alcoholic detective solves murder mystery. What more could one ask for? Loved it. Based on a book series also so the fun need not stop here.

Topher Grace is rarely in bad movies. I liked the suspense, the premise of scripture being used in the murders ( I'm so not Christian) and the characters were not typically boring. Reminded me of Fargo.

The worst movie I have ever seen with Susan Sarandon, Ellen Burstyn & Donald Sutherland. With actors of their calibre I would have expected more than this movie gave. I gave it a fair chance and only FF near the end because I couldn't stand it any longer. Would not recommend this movie.

Rated 4/10.

Not an action movie--it is a look at deeply flawed characters who want to do something right. A little predictable, but sort of gives one hope.

This was filmed mostly in Dundas and Hamilton and I got a kick out of seeing the familiar places. Other people commenting here said the movie was slow but I disagree. I'm also happy to see a Canadian film.

Pretty slow movie. I thought I would fall asleep. Anyway it was a So-So-movie.

Entertaining, but a little bit slow. Sarandon was good in her role as the alcoholic, small town police chief.

Another crazy religious movie, claiming to bring back somebody through some illicit acts of horrendous killings based on some ancient Latin formula, not at all biblical, just entertaining enough.

Taut thriller involving a mysterious serial killer. Better than average movie.
