The Ugly (1997)
THE UGLY is a interesting little nugget. A female psychologist is allowed to interview a convicted serial killer. Her study looks into the killers mind as she tries to sort out who he really is and what's going on in the dark space that is his mind. I'm not sure she likes what she finds.
This is a New Zealand production with some fantastic acting and truly creepy subject matter that may appeal to the SILENCE OF THE LAMBS set. No, it's not SILENCE, but it's similar in many ways. Learning about the killer through the interview process was interesting and seeing what is going on in his head is scary and jarring.
Take a look - I think you'll dig it.
