It’s a dark and stormy night and 10 strangers are drawn together for shelter at a motel in the middle of nowhere. Strange things begin to happen at the motel and people end up dying one by one. Next to each body is a number and it seems to be some sort of count down. No one knows who the killer is or what will happen when the count down reaches 1?
Unlike most horror films that have cheesy deaths and a killer hell-bent on revenge, Identity relies on the unknown and the terror of the characters. They don’t know who the killer is and they are playing off one another. As more startling information is revealed about each person, it makes you more and more interested, but it’s not until the end that the true killer is revealed in a unique fashion. Appearing towards the end of my personal top 100 list, Identity always feels to me like the rest of the “horror” films out there with one unique difference, the end, and that is what makes it enjoyable. Starring John Cusack, Ray Liotta, Amanda Peet, John Hawkes, Alfred Molina, Clea DuVall, John C. McGinley, Jake Busey, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Rebecca De Mornay, William Lee Scott and Bret Loehr.
9/10 Stars – Surprised me in a big way, plus the large cast helps.
