10 To Midnight   Offscreen 2015 mini logo thriller reviews reviews drama Hey Charlie, what time is it?

Charles Bronson, Mr. Merciless Vigilante himself, as a rough veteran cop obsessively chasing a psychopath who is some kind of deranged, schizophrenic hybrid between real-life serial killers Richard Speck and Ted Bundy? Well, to me that pretty much sounds like a cinematic dream come true, even more so because the film – especially during the first half hour – has the allure of a typically early ’80s, vile teen-slasher movie!

Crime does not pay. Or, well, it might for a while, until your money’s gone. Then you’ll get your wife back. In pieces.

Unlicensed private detective Matthew Scudder (Liam Neeson) has been through some rough waters of his own. His reputation draws the attention of a drug trafficking kingpin, who wants to hire Scudder to track down the people responsible for kidnapping his wife. Against better judgement, Scudder accepts the job, leading him onto the trail of two misogynistic serial killers targetting women across the city. When things become more bleak in the process of bringing the culprits to justice, Scudder has the choice to make it a federal matter or join forces with the lesser of two evils: the aid of wealthy criminals, a drug addict and a young vagrant.
