This week we have what I consider to be a way under appreciated little thriller. In spite of script work by J.J. Abrams, the direction of John Dahl (who made poker cool with Rounders almost a decade before it's current popularity), a decent cast (including Buffalo Bill himself, Ted Levine, as the voice of "Rusty Nail") and a fairly positive critical response, it's still never seemed to find much love from the horror loving audience. Pretty sad since it's funny, well made, has a very decent mean streak, and best of all, unlike many (some would even say most) modern thrillers, it manages to be chock full o' white knuckled, steering wheel gripping, teeth-grinding suspense.

Alright, people, warm up with some Duel or The Hitcher if you wanna. Hit the bathroom, adjust your mirrors, buckle up, and get ready because at 7pm Pacific, 8pm Mountain, 9pm Central, and 10pm Eastern...

I don't think I'm going to be watching anything. Seems to be just you and me, Luna and I take it you don't have the movie.
