Number 23, The: Unrated
Jim Carrey and Virginia Madsen star in the year's most "mind-bending" (Pete Hammond, Maxim) psychological thriller directed by Joel Schumacher.
The nightmare begins when Walter Sparrow (Carrey), a mild-mannered dogcatcher, begins reading a tattered, used book called The Number 23. Obsessed by the countless similarities between the degenerate main character and himself, Walter plunges headlong into the same dark, seductive world. When the book's main character commits an unspeakable act, Walter is terrified that he's destined to follow the same twisted path.
