Catherine Dean is brought into an FBI investigation for which she has to enter the frayed mind of a serial killer. Catherine must find out where his last victim is being tortured and she only has 40 hours in which to do it. The only problem, once you get inside his mind you may never get out.

Director Tarsem Singh delivers this film with a visual feast of shocking and intensive imagery. Nothing is too big or too small for Singh and he accounts for everything. With his fantastic directing this film is a pleasure, even when at its most gruesome, to watch.

I really enjoyed this film and felt it was a bit like The Silence of the Lambs meets Sci-fi. All this film asks of you is that you open your mind and take a trip - nothing more.

There are over 57 minutes of extra features on this DVD and all are worthwhile. From a behind the scenes look to deleted scenes and even a mind game to play, although you have to be pretty head strong to get to the next level!

This DVD is not for the squeamish but if you like a good thriller teemed with Sci-fi then this is for you.
