Blurb from IMDb: Deep in the English moors, a sociopath preys on innocent people, until one day his secrets are finally revealed and an inevitable confrontation is at hand.

Selina’s Point of View:
I really don’t have much to say about this one.

The plot had promise. According to Hulu, it should have been about a girl finding out that her father is a serial killer after she saves one of his victims. IMDb’s explanation was much closer to the truth. You don’t really see things from the girl’s perspective. I wish the movie matched the Hulu description more.

I didn’t see much merit in it otherwise. It was such a recipe film that the pieces strung together didn’t even feel like they should be there. It was like someone had a list of movie ingredients and shoved them all together randomly with no actual harmony involved.

I liked a piece here and a bit there… but everything felt so forced that I never wound up liking anything for more than a couple of minutes.

They could have done a lot better with this idea. Hopefully someone will in the future.
