Movie: The Traveler

Director: Michael Oblowitz
Actors: Val Kilmer, Dylan Neal & Paul McGillion
MPAA rating: R
Running time: 96 mins
Tagline: How do you catch a killer you've already caught?

On the Christmas Eve in a small town, a stranger enters in the precinct and tells the Desk Sergeant Gulloy that he had murdered six people. Detective Alexander Black arrests the man in a cell and Deputy Jerry Pine, Deputy Jane Hollow, Deputy Toby Sherwood and Deputy Jack Hawkins are not able to identify him since the stranger does not have fingerprints. They call him Mr. Nobody and Deputy Hawkins recalls that he resembles the haired drifter that they had arrested and tortured one year ago, when the daughter of Detective Black had vanished. Along the night, while Mr. Nobody confesses each murder and whistles Lacrimosa from Mozart's Requiem, and the murder occurs.

I picked this movie because Val Kilmer is in some of my favorite movies

What I liked the Most? The ending

What I liked the Least? It was really graphic

Review: Ok so this is a bloody B movie and yes I mean bloody. With awkward effects and stilted acting – but hey it’s still meant for entertainment. Bunny will enjoy this one.

I will say that I enjoyed the confessional style of the murders.

Recommended to: Only fans of campy gore

Best Quote: It's ironic, isn't it? The old testament had a wrathful god, but people became uneasy with the concept and needed a best seller, so they came up with a new testament; suddenly god was loving and forgiving. I'm old school, myself; I prefer the old testament. I mean you've gotta love a god who's unafraid to mete out a little vengeance when the need arises.
