    Trying to find words to make this movie down but berenger in it prevents my fingers to type the details. The Movie is hell of slow and lacking of plot. Seeing Tom Berenger as Serial Killer was new to me! As much as a huge fan of Berenger I am, I have to say he wasnt convincing in his role. How ever watchable. I give this movie two stars for one reason the location they filmed the Movie was Awesome since nothing special I even believe this was a very cheap mix of ted bundy and the hitcher! p.s. I m gonna kick your ass Scoop, for recommending me this Movie!

    Cruel and Unusual is very great Thriller with Tom Berenger playing a Serial Killer. I have seen couple of his Movies and I was surprised by his perfomance as a Serial Killer. Unlike other of his Movies it was refreshing to see Tom Berenger in a completely different role. And the killing goes on! Watch out why?
