The Alphabet Killer

Not the usual movie I would watch: a straight to DVD thriller which I had never even heard of until it got chucked on the new release wall as a money waster. I had pretty low expectations for this movie, and it just managed to reach them.
Megan Paige (Eliza Dushku) is investigating a case of double initial killings in Rochester, New York. However, while she is doing this she becomes attached to the case, and starts to see things that others believe are a little far fetched to be true. She deals with hallucinations, and ends up going crazy and is sent to a hospital. All the while, the case is closed but she wants to do more to help.
Definitely not one of the greatest movies I have ever seen. It follows the lead of most thrillers, but is like a a re-work of a film like The Silence of the Lambs made on unfinished paper...very so-so. Eliza Dushku was pretty good, but her character was really annoying and I got sick of her half way through the movie. Just like this movie. Half way through, I got sick of it. It was like the first half of the movie had been copy and pasted to the second of the movie. Very disappointing.
However, The Alphabet Killer was quite interesting and intriguing. I liked the intensity of this movie, and it was an alright watch compared to the other straight to DVD thrillers there are.
Alright, but not amazing.
