A tour of serial killer sites becomes a nightmare

Released in the early ’90s, when there were more psychos in movies than in Riker’s Island penitentiary, this slick thriller presses most of the right buttons.

Dominic Sena (Swordfish) tackles the ludicrous script by throwing the visual equivalent of a flashbang grenade at it, while Brad Pitt retools his Thelma & Louise charmer as a hairy, hillbilly nutter on a road trip with two killer-fixated journos (David Duchovny, Michelle Forbes).

Pitt’s showboating is so outrageous, he acts Duchovny’s one-note yuppie off the screen and into a taxi home.
