When I saw this sci-fi thriller a few nights ago, I had never even heard of it. However, after watching it, I’m sure glad that I took the time to.
Here’s a non-spoiling plot summary from IMDb since I’m too lazy to write my own:
John Murdoch awakens alone in a strange hotel to find that he has lost his memory and is wanted for a series of brutal and bizarre murders. While trying to piece together his past, he stumbles upon a fiendish underworld controlled by a group of beings known as The Strangers who possess the ability to put people to sleep and alter the city and its inhabitants. Now Murdoch must find a way to stop them before they take control of his mind and destroy him.
The plot is perhaps a tiny bit thin in places, but the idea of the movie and more importantly, the visual style of the movie, is awesome. It sorta reminds me of the Sin City style — very dark and artistic.
If you haven’t seen it (it’s old, it came out in 1998, so I imagine some of you have), you really should. Definetly worth your time, especially if you’re into sci-fi.
