The Alphabet Killer
The Alphabet Killer-2008, starring Eliza Dushku, Cary Elwes, Timothy Hutton, and Michael Ironside
He says- A young girl is raped and strangled, and Rochester, N.Y., police detective Dushku, who has all sorts of psychological issues, becomes obsessed with solving the case. By-the-letters thriller poses one burning question: Who let this woman on the police force? Loosely based on a series of murders that took place in Rochester in the 1970s. Scripted by Malloy, who plays officer Stephen Harper. 2 stars.
I say- I thought the same thing that Maltin thought! Eliza is constantly hallucinating, which would make me, if I was police chief, let her go immediately! Dear God! Man, this thing looks like it was shot on a cheap camera and Cary Elwes belongs in better movies. A half of a star.
