We believe that if you are passionate about reading up on serial killers, then you will love this horror film. Trick is the type of horror film were the audience are shown the story from the polices perspective, which adds a true crime type element to the serial killer hunt. The fact that we don’t know what is happening too makes their chase even more exciting. This is because we find out new information at the same time as the police. If you are interested in serial killers, then this is the film for you. We really did enjoy it!
