"The Richest, Most Provocative Serial Killer Movie In Cinema History" -Kenneth M. Chanko, Newark Star-Ledger
From the award-winning director of The Sweet Hereafter comes "one of the year's riskiest yet most effective films" (Los Angeles Times). Academy Award-nominee Bob Hoskins plays his role like "a sadist with a schoolboy's heart" (Time), creating a powerful, deeply passionate thriller that pulsates with heart-pounding suspense at every turn.
Joseph Hilditch is an eccentric chef who lives in a large country manor. He befriends a young woman named Felicia who has come to town searching for her boyfriend. Felicia is attracted to the seemingly harmless and extremely helpful Hilditch, trusting him, entering his home - and his life - only to discover too late that she is not the first woman this man has taken in - although she may be the last.
