Movie Details

A troubled cop makes a discovery that really has him worried in this thriller. Mickey Hayden (Kiefer Sutherland), a police detective, is ordered to take a new look at a case he'd worked on ten years ago. A brilliant but demented serial killer known as Jabberwocky went on a killing spree before dropping out of sight; Hayden was never able to track him down, and the disappointment has left Hayden with more than his share of emotional scars; the detective has since become an alcoholic in a failed attempt to cope. After a decade of silence, Jabberwocky strikes again, sending the police a note suggesting Hayden be put back on his case. But this time around, Hayden notices something different as he investigates the killings; when he comes in contact with the evidence, he has troubling psychic visions that tell him more about the murders than he ever wanted to know. Originally produced for the premium cable network HBO, Eye of the Killer also stars Polly Walker and Henry Czerny. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
