Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Jeff Fahey, best known as the star of The Lawnmower Man, headlines director David Fairman's supernaturally-tinged psychological thriller Messages. The actor stars as Richard Murray, a forensic pathologist in charge of the local mortuary, who lost his wife in a tragic road accident. When a series of bodies turns up - all women, and all brutally murdered - the Los Angeles Police Department assigns a detective to the case; meanwhile, Richard grapples with both troublesome memories of his late wife and the discovery that mysterious messages are cropping up on his email server, all apparently originating with the murder victims. As he delves ever deeper into the case, he arrives at the sudden, shocking conclusion that he knew each of the women, and worries that he might have rubbed them out in a drunken state, as he concurrently (and paradoxically) makes valiant attempts to reach the next victim before the killer.
