The Cell

Enter the mind of a killer…

The Rio Theatre‘s Friday Late Night Movie series continues on January 21 with director Tarsem Singh‘s stylish, sexy psychological thriller THE CELL. Jennifer Lopez stars as psychotherapist Catherine Deane, who has developed a technique to enter the unconscious mind of another. Now, in a desperate attempt to save an innocent life, she enters the mind of a comatose serial killer to find his latest victim–a young woman whom the maniac has kidnapped and imprisoned in a torture chamber.But once inside the killer’s subconscious, a terrifying maze of horror, can Deane return with her life–and her mind–intact? Also starring Vince Vaughan, Vincent D’Onofrio, Colton James, Dylan Baker, Marianne Jean-Baptiste.

“Like [anyone’s] imagination, the movie’s landscape is littered with half-remembered pop artifacts… what’s different is that Tarsem, a commercial and video director here making his feature debut, sticks the protagonists in a garden of unearthly delights.” (New York Daily News)
