Alphabet Killer

Alphabet Killer

Directed by Rob Schmidt

A ten year old girl is found brutally murdered outside the small blue-collar city of Rochester, New York, and obsessed police detective Megan Paige (Eliza Dushku of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and DOLLHOUSE) suffers a mental breakdown while trying to solve the crime. But when the child-killings resume two years later, Megan’s return to the investigation also brings back her own horrific hallucinations. Even if she can prove a ‘double initial’ connection to the slayings, will she hang onto her sanity long enough to catch a psychopath?

A ten year old girl is found brutally murdered outside the small blue-collar city of Rochester, New York, and obsessed police detective Megan Paige suffers a mental breakdown while trying to solve the crime.

I sort of liked and sort of hated this. The acting is solid, maybe the best Dushku outside of True Lies and Buffy. That said, it was confusing and not satisfying. I know part of that is driven by the facts behind the case, but it nonetheless made me wonder if I'd sit through it again. Still--worth a watch if you're a fan of psychological thrillers.

Dushku makes this film not suck, which it otherwise would. She is sympathetic and believable, and communicates distress and mental illness convincingly without it seeming ridiculously fake. What a Frankenstein of a plot full of unconvincing coincidences and an ending that left me feeling like wtf is even the point here.
