Sky Movies Premiere: PREMIERE Friday 10 July, 11.40pm

Paunchy cab driver Vincent D’Onofrio preys on his female fares, dicing them up in his dingy home. But he spares Julia Ormond’s young son Eamon Farren, who grows up abused and brutalised to be D’Onofrio’s reluctant protégé. The 2011 Austrian film Michael treated this type of deeply disturbing subject with deadpan disdain. Following her violent FBI thriller Surveillance, David Lynch’s daughter Jennifer goes all-out for skin-crawling creepiness. And to this end she’s well served by Mr D’Onofrio, a past master of evil screen portrayals. Whether playing straight (Carl Stargher in The Cell) or goofy (Pooh-Bear in The Salton Sea), there’s something innately scary about D’Onofrio. The film itself, shot in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, is simply unilluminating and unpleasant.
