One day in a town somewhere, a young woman named Jessica goes missing, presumably murdered.

|Although it's sometimes labelled as horror, this is basically a crime movie with some supernatural elements. Set in the Southern US, the story depicts a few peculiar characters which are mostly clichéd, but the cast is impressive and I think all the actors did a good job, so the result is pretty enjoyable.|
Keanu does not have that much screen time even though his character is pivotal. He still looks damn fine, in spite of his character's despicable attitude. I think it's fun to see him play the bad guy for a change, after all he sure knows how to hold a gun and fight!
