Storyline

The H-61 Killer is leaving a trail of skeletons across the Northern Mid-West. With police baffled, a retired FBI profiler is called in to assist. A seer of the criminal psyche, Saul Aitken (Gabriele Angieri) detects an incipient game. Only to find himself at the center as he's abducted from his hotel. With the profiler as his captive, the killer reveals himself as a teenager named David (Joey Pollari). Ruthless, resourceful and clever, he challenges Aitken to a battle of wits; he must employ the science of profiling to stop David from killing again. Meanwhile the task force builds a trail with the help of FBI Special Agent, Rachel Cade (Emily Fradenburgh). With her own kind of ruthlessness, she fights to avenge the victims but now she must do so with a hostage in the equation. The cat and mouse reaches a climax as David lashes out at the authorities. Now facing their wrath, his game begins to unravel. But he still has the profiler as his hostage... and every game needs a final round. Written by Caspian Tredwell-Owen

Some of the worst acting I've ever seen
23 August 2019 | by andyshldnSee all my reviews

This movie is a mess right from the jump. Whoever wrote it doesn't understand how to storyboard a movie so it makes some chronological sense to the viewers. The acting is so horrific that it's comical unintentionally. The teenage killer is pathetic and totally unbelievable. The old detective must have a background of doing denture and adult diaper commercials. Not sure if there's a director involved, but they should remove themselves from the credits. Pure garbage from start till what I could tolerate as my finish point which was 38 agonizing minutes into this puddle of doggie dung.
