Identity (2003)

Strangers from all walks of life: a limo driver (John Cusack) escorting an 80's movie star (Rebecca de Mornay), parents with a young son, a cop (Ray Liotta) transporting a convict (Jake Busey), a prostitute (Amanda Peet), newlyweds (Clea Duvall and William Lee Scott) are caught up in a nasty rainstorm, stuck at a motel in desolate Nevada, run by a nervous manager (John Hawkes). Soon they realise they may be at the motel for another reason when they're being killed off one by one. As tensions flare and fingers are pointed, they have to get to the bottom of why they're there. Meanwhile in an undisclosed location, a psychiatrist is trying to prove the innocence of a man accused of murder in an eleventh hour trial. Directed by James Mangold from Girl, Interrupted.

The film starts off as a classic "whodunnit", then flips and twists many times.

Rating: 2/5.
