Inside the twisted mind of convicted killer Malcom Rivers is the story of 10 strangers brought together for the consequences of an internal struggle. John Cusak turns in one of the most uncharacteristic performances of his career along side Ray Liotta, Amanda Peet, and Rebecca De Mornay.
The story and concept are more brilliant and original as the writing suggests, where we are left to psychologically examine the evidence and come to our own conclusions based on the movie's unbelievable ending. Fueled by the madness inside a crazed killer is Hughes Mearns short poem, "As I was going up the stair, I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today, I wish, I wish he'd go away." These words will leave any viewer with chills as the dramatic conclusion unfolds.
