8.30PM, ONE ★★★

A real shame this serial-killer thriller was re­leased so close to David Fincher’s su­perb Seven, for it fea­tures writ­ing and per­for­mances not all that far be­hind in qual­ity. Don’t be too dis­tracted by the against-type cast of jazz crooner Harry Con­nick Jr as a creepy con­victed mur­derer. It is re­ally the pow­er­house act­ing of Sigour­ney Weaver (as a fright­ened aca­demic) and Holly Hunter (as a sea­soned de­tec­tive) that sets this spooker apart from the pack. If you’ve passed this one over be­fore, give it a go – you’ll be sur­prised.
