Great chilling entertainment! I'd read the book if I wasn't such a lazy person.
I just watched this mini TV-series a few days ago. A friend of mine recommended seeing it. So I did. And I wasn't disappointed.

The story was pretty ok, but what really caught my eyes were the two main characters: Chyna (the heroine) and Mr. Vess (the bad guy). Chyna is insecure but determined young woman who has been neglected as a child and thus she suffers from recurring nightmares and repeating flash backs from her miserable past. Mr. Vess on the other hand comes from a good loving family or so he states when Chyna tries to use inversed psychology with him (with no obvious luck) when she's being held captive at his house of horrors, aiming to save a missing girl named Ariel.

Well coming from a good background or not, Vess is not the man you wanna mess with. But what we also get to know very soon after seeing Mr. Vess for the first time in action, that he is in fact a genuine psychopath who likes to hunt not just game but also people during his morbid little trips on the road with his big bad VR in order to bring home some trophies to 'his' sweet Ariel.

He's handy with his knife and careful with his life... But not enough that his extremely sensitive senses and trained dogs will get him of the hook this time. _Intense_ suspense. Thrilling moments guaranteed and even some mysticism. I especially liked Mr. Vess' performance. Particularly his facial expressions and deep sighing and quiet murmuring when playing with his knives added some chilling effects on the character.

Now it's my time to recommend this great mini TV-series to all you people who haven't seen it. It's based on Koontz novel, but I can't make any comparisons with the book and the TV-series since I have never read any of his books. Maybe I ought to...
