In this spine-tingling and visually stunning thriller, Academy AwardÂ®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Unbreakable, Shaft, Pulp Fiction delivers a "full-throttle performance" (People) as Romulus Ledbetter, a misunderstood musician turned recluse, hiding from personal demons in a New York City cave. When Romulus finds the frozen body of a young drifter in a tree, the authorities - including his police officer daughter (Aunjanne Ellis) - claim the death is accidental. Romulus is convinced the man was murdered by prominent art photographer David Leppenraub (Colm Feore). But how can he prove he's right when everyone thinks he's insane?

Kendall I (es) wrote: This movie is exactly as I expected it to be:a gritty,zombie horror with deadpan plot. The acting wasn't all that bad as I was expecting (it was better than Secrets of the Clown). I loved the soundtrack to this,it was pretty rockin'! But overall,it's one of those low-budget zombie flicks you might catch on Sci-Fi. An ok zombie flick.

Daniel Auteuil is a great actor.....so versatile.....'Harry' in 'The Eighth Day' and 'Ugolin' in 'Jean de Florette'. In 'Le Bossu' he ends up holding the baby.....and there's a hunchback in it (again). Very good film if you like The Three Musketeer type movie.....french style.
Rick P (gb) wrote: Perhaps it's not entirely fair for me to review this movie since I walked out in disgust about halfway through and came back only for the last ten minutes. But I agree with Dennis Cooper: The literal interpretation of his book makes the film an entirely predictable exploitation flick - in terms of narrative and in the amateurish way it's all presented - instead of a compelling and artful auto-interrogation of fucked-up desire. The most damage done is by director Todd Verow's inability to transpose the colloquial first-person of the book into something that makes sense for a movie. At this point in his career, he doesn't have the skills to pull it off, which results in a decision to make the serial killing explicitly real. I suppose Verow thinks that makes his movie more transgressive than Cooper's book which only tells me he didn't understand the book in the first place. Verow can be a creative and entertaining filmmaker - his Once and Future Queen is a scream; and Anonymous showed promise - but Frisk is dull and obvious, and only a half-star away from being complete garbage.

Bruce B (it) wrote: Not a Bad Black & White Film, pretty good acting, and good story line. Maryln Monroe wasn't the main star in this one. It was enjoyable, and fun. Its always cool to see the prices of things back in the day, Like 2 Big Cans of Tomatoes for 35 cents, and rent for 65 dollars, and a plumber charging $3.50 hr for labor. But hey whats to complain about this morning gas was $1.99. This is a Sunday Night Movie, its clean
