      Audience Member A slow burn thriller that is, well, slow. The music was laughable with those electric guitar riffs flowing in my TV speakers all the time. The ending got pathetic when the guy started boning his sister - all that was unnecessary. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member the cheesy guitar music in the background is annoying. very b movie. slow dull plot. yawn. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Looked like one remake of Ted Bundy. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Trying to find words to make this movie down but berenger in it prevents my fingers to type the details. The Movie is hell of slow and lacking of plot. Seeing Tom Berenger as Serial Killer was new to me! As much as a huge fan of Berenger I am, I have to say he wasnt convincing in his role. How ever watchable. I give this movie two stars for one reason the location they filmed the Movie was Awesome since nothing special I even believe this was a very cheap mix of ted bundy and the hitcher! p.s. I m gonna kick your ass Scoop, for recommending me this Movie! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Cruel and Unusual is very great Thriller with Tom Berenger playing a Serial Killer. I have seen couple of his Movies and I was surprised by his perfomance as a Serial Killer. Unlike other of his Movies it was refreshing to see Tom Berenger in a completely different role. And the killing goes on! Watch out why? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Not too bad, but a bit predictable. Decent acting, it has its suspenseful moments. Some good cinematography, okay story. Nothing special, one of those middle of the road movies. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
