Elevator Pitch The disappearance of a young married woman in a small community focuses attention on the local clairvoyant, to whom, in a sequence of macabre revelations, the location of her body, and the identity of the killer is revealed.
Content Scenes of domestic violence, some extreme. Some sexually explicit phrases and some nudity in an extremely unpleasant context. Also images of a decomposing body.
A View It seemed as if some attempt had been made to “sex up” the script – literally, but it rolled along OK, and the cast did their best with it. It was nice to see Gary Cole in a minor role.
