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?
