We get a glimpse of the ultimate love of the O’Ryan character, complete with a sacrifice theme and the foretelling of that event. And we see a concept generally accepted within Christianity -- the indwelling of the Holy Spirit

It's 4 AM and torrents of rain pour down on a dusty roadside New Mexico diner. Inside, an innocuous looking salesman sips coffee while catching up on his fishing magazines. After the front door creaks open, an unusual looking man startles the salesman by sitting down at his table and displaying frightening drawings that send the salesman fleeing for the safety of his car.

We meet Agent Thomas Mackelway on his first day of work at the Albuquerque field office of the FBI. Mackelway, wrestling with secrets and demons from his past, is plagues by headaches and feels that he is being watched. And in fact he is... but by whom?

Mackelway finds himself mysteriously drawn into a bizarre series of murders: the salesman from the diner found dead in his car on the deserted New Mexico border; a sixth grade teacher from Boulder, Co. discovered in an abandoned vehicle in the diner parking lot; and Mackelay's own personal nemesis, killed while attacking a young girl. Mackelway's former partner, Fran Kulok, who knows Mackelway's deepest secrets, is sent to Albuquerque to assist him on the case. Together, they set out to solve this lethal puzzle. What do these murders have in common?

The case becomes increasingly personal as Mackelway's determination turns to obsession. The killer seems to be taunting him, faxing him hundreds of maddening, chilling clues, all of which point to a cunning renegade named Benjamin O'Ryan. Trained in a secret government remote viewing program which enabled five elite agents to get into the hearts and minds of killers and their victims, O'Ryan became consumed with tracking the ultimate manifestation of a killer -- Suspect Zero.

Click to enlargeSome movies seem to split the moviegoing audience as wide apart as the election process in America. You either love ‘em or you hate ‘em, and it seems as if there is no in-between. The recent release -- Suspect Zero -- is just such a movie. For some strange reason, many within the moviegoing audience have found a niche in “serial killer” themes. The success of the Silence of the Lambs Trilogy with Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, and Red Dragon, (preceded by Manhunter), along with such films as Seven, has helped give credibility to the genre. Suspect Zero falls into the recent serial killer format, but with its own distinctive twist.
