An excellent movie that fans of David Fincher's Zodiac will love.

Beautiful scenery, great music and good acting. I have seen it twice now and it was just as good as I remembered it. Some really funny moments and a few thrills and chilling moments. But the way the movie is crafted and cut is just beautiful. Love the ending immensely, and since it's based on a true story - you can't really complain about it.

It was really good. Almost perfect, everything about it was great. I give it 9/10. All the actors were incredibly transparent, there was a good amount of humor through the movie to lighten the load of the more depressing parts, and you were able to connect with the characters pretty well with little back story.

The scene where the killer pops up behind the woman in the bushes in the back of the shot was one of the most horrifying scenes in any movie I have ever seen. It made my skin crawl. The shot was done in a way where it wasn't obvious to the audience at all, just a small figure in the grass that made the imagination run wild.
