The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately corrupt; who can understand it?
Jeremiah 17:9

When a serial killer targets Kevin Parson (Marc Blucas), a seminary student with something hidden in his past, he gives him a set of coded instructions that Kevin must figure out in a hurry before a bomb goes off. Each time the unseen psychopath tells Kevin that he must confess or others will die. Jennifer Peters (Justine Waddell), an FBI profiler has more than a professional interest in helping Kevin. She lost her brother to the same killer. Samantha (Laura Jordan), his childhood sweetheart also lends a hand. Through flashbacks to his childhood it is apparent that Kevin had a relationship with the killer. His abusive stepmother Belinda Parson (Priscilla Barnes) also is involved.


This is one of three films (yes, count them, three—One Night With the King, already released; and The Sin Eater, a far better film due out soon) aimed at the church market by Fox Faith, a division of 20th century Fox. The actors are all fine, but the script leaves much to be desired, and I find it difficult to believe that many church folk will want to see a horror/thriller film, even though the gore level is low and there is some discussion of faith. The climax is intriguing, even though I guessed half of the outcome about two-thirds into the film.
