Remember a little film that got a limited release called TEXAS KILLING FIELDS from Michael Mann’s daughter Ami Canaan Mann? No? Well the film is hitting DVD and Bluray next Tuesday so here is your chance to check it out.
I am curious to see it because I like this sub-genre, plus it has a solid cast. I can see it going either way and there is only one way to find out whether it is a success or failure. The film will come with one bonus feature – Director’s Commentary.
Inspired by true events, this tense and haunting thriller follows a local homicide detective in a small Texan town and his partner, a transplanted cop from New York City as they track a sadistic serial killer dumping his victims’ mutilated bodies in a nearby marsh locals call “The Killing Fields”.
The killer changes the game and begins hunting the detectives, teasing them with possible clues at the crime scenes while always remaining one step ahead. When a familiar local girl, Anne goes missing the detectives find themselves in a race against time to find the killer and save her life.
Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chloe Moretz, Jessica Chastain (below), Stephen Graham and Jason Clark all star in the film.
