One day in a town somewhere, a young woman named Jessica goes missing, presumably murdered. Possibly the only person who can help - apart from the culprit willingly turning themselves in - is the local psychic, Annie, because clairvoyancy is useful that way. She helps the police, they arrest a probable suspect, but she continues to get visions that suggest they might have got the wrong guy...

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 clich├ęd, 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!
