Untraceable (2008)

22nd June 2020 @matcoop 0

As a a script writer for hire and UK script consultant I’m a massive Diane Lane fan boy, and this weekend I dug out Untraceable from 2008, a ‘Silence of The Lambs’ style serial killer film, with an internet slant.

As a a script writer for hire and UK script consultant I really enjoyed The Vast of Night (2019), an odd, old fashioned treat of a sci-fi film. Despite enjoying it a lot, it did get on my nerves from time to time (especially early on), and I’m not sure it’s for everyone.
