Shades

    Director Paul Sullivan (Mickey Rourke) wanted to look behind the eyes of pure evil by filming a biographical picture about a Belgian mass murderer Freddy Lebecq (Jan Decleir). When documentation becomes exploitation, actor Dylan Cole (Andrew Howard) attempts to humanize the reviled man's life story through his performance.

     

    When this is leaked to the local media, the family of Lebecq's victims fight to shut down the already financially compromised production. Meanwhile, Lebecq escapes from prison and goes after the production with a vengeance. His hateful letters are used to stir up publicity for the film, but quickly become a real threat. No one is safe from the grip of Lebecq's terror.
