Product Description

Identity is a daring new thriller from director James Mangold, (the writer/director of Girl, Interrupted, Cop Land and Heavy) and producer Cathy Konrad (Scream 1, 2 & 3, Cop Land, Girl, Interrupted), featuring an all-star ensemble cast including John Cusack, Ray Liotta, Amanda Peet, Alfred Molina, Jake Busey, Clea DuVall and Rebecca De Mornay. Caught in a savage rainstorm, ten travellers are forced to seek refuge at a strange desert motel. They soon realize they’ve found anything but shelter. There is a killer among them and, one by one, they are murdered. As the storm rages on and the dead begin to outnumber the living, one thing becomes clear: Each of them was drawn to the motel, not by accident or circumstance, but by forces beyond imagination, forces that promise anyone who survives a mind-bending and terrifying destiny.

From Amazon.co.uk

With an ace up its sleeve, Identity does for schizophrenia what The Silence of the Lambs did for fava beans and a nice Chianti. On the proverbial dark and stormy night, this anxiety-laced thriller offers a tasty blend of And Then There Were None and Psycho, with a dash of Sybil for extra spice and psychosis. Things go from bad to worse when 10 unrelated travellers converge at an isolated motel and proceed to die, one by one, with no apparent connection...until they discover the common detail that's drawn them into this nightmare of relentless trauma.

Even while its take on abnormal psychology fails to impress, Michael Cooney's screenplay offers meaty material for a superior ensemble cast including John Cusack and Rebecca DeMornay (who wins the Janet Leigh prize in a bitchy comeback role). Director James Mangold pivots the action around one character (played by his Heavy star, Pruitt Taylor Vince, in eye-twitching cuckoo mode) and half the fun of Identity comes from deciphering who's who, what's what and who'll be the next to die. --Jeff Shannon

Sick and tired of those ordinary thrillers that are all fluff and very little substance? 'Identity' may be the answer that you're looking for, as it is a clever and dark thriller with a solid story, a terrific cast and a great look and feel to it all. The film revolves around ten strangers who end up at a little motel due to a horrible storm. All of them have been brought there by chance... or, is it a little more complicated than that? They think they're out of the woods until people start getting butchered left and right, in a countdown fashion. What appears to be nothing more than a murderer on the loose having his or her fun ends up being something a lot more sinister and threatening. Have these ten individuals been picked at random, or have their fates been sealed from the very beginning?
When I started watching this, I thought to myself, 'Oh boy, I bet you I know exactly how this is going to end.' I was wrong. The film takes a lot of clever and unexpected twists that really goes to show you how great a thriller can really be if the right brains are behind it all. It has some great suspense and frightening moments, an intriguing plot that likes to play around with your mind, and it delivers a very confident presentation. You'll recognize a good majority of the cast, as some of them include John Cusack, Ray Liotta, Amanda Peet and Rebecca DeMornay. All are great, especially Cusack who proves that he can be a successful lead role in a top-notch thriller.
The DVD has some cool goodies to offer. You can watch it in widescreen or fullscreen, depending on which is your preference. You also have the choice to watch the theatrical cut, or the extended version (not to be mistaken for a 'director's cut'). I must be honest and admit that the extended version is really not worth it.

Format: DVD
A rich atmospheric psychological thriller directed by James Mangold ("Heavy"/"Cop Land") and scripted by Michael Cooney. In the night time Nevada desert, a heavy rainstorm floods the roads and the phone lines are down. A group of ten stranded travellers converge on a seedy motel. The isolated motel looks as if it were lifted from the set of Psycho, and the weirdo manager Larry (Hawkes) looks as if he might have a few Norman Bates type of secrets. The storyline could have been pinched from Agatha Christie's play made into the film Ten Little Indians in 1945 and 1974, even though the film had scripted several changes to the plotline. Soon after the guests arrive they are being murdered one-by-one and at the victim's side is their motel key, making it look as if their deaths might not be random.
George (McGinley) and Alice York (Kenzle) and their odd young tongue-tied son Timothy (Loehr) stop at the motel seeking medical help after Alice is accidently run down on the highway by a limo. Timothy is George's step-son, as his real father split two years ago. Ed (Cusack) the limo driver was a former LA policeman who burned-out and quit because of medical reasons. Ed is transporting a self-absorbed and spoiled fading TV actress Caroline Suzanne (De Mornay) to Los Angeles, when he took his eyes off the road to get batteries for her cell phone and hit Alice. Ed takes the severely injured woman to the motel and when he can't phone or travel for help, he sews up her neck with a sewing kit. Paris (Peet) is a world-weary sexy Las Vegas hooker who skips town after she robs her john. She's heading for her hometown in Frostbite, Florida to buy an orange orchard farm with the stolen money, but her car gets stuck in the flooded road.

What made this film so great for me was that even up until the end, you weren't sure what type of a film you were watching. As the film progresses, the viewer isn't sure whether they're watching a slasher film, a whodunnit or a supernatural horror film.
A group of strangers, through a series of bizzarre coincidences, find themselves trapped in a motel in the pouring rain. Cut off from the outside world, the group begin to discover a few more inexplicable oddities, while one by one, they die in a pre-destined order, either by being murdered or by accident. Meanwhile, somewhere else in the same storm, a midnight court trial is trying to determine the innocence of a convict who will be electrocuted in 24 hours.
The plot is designed to keep you guessing, as each plot twist throws up another series of questions and seemingly inexplicable situations. What is the relevance of the court case? How come keys are found by each body as the death toll mounts? Who is innocent and who is guilty?
Here is a thriller that not only buckles the formula, but almost completely demolishes it. Each actor does a superb job of maintaining the suspense. I still feel that John Cusack is better suited (though maybe too old)to zany comedies in high schools, but his performance here is admirable. So too, among others is Ray Liotta's cop, and Ray Busey playing a prisoner who's very presence is menacing.
Some of the set-ups are incredibly creepy, and will jangle the nerves, just like the old urban legends stories that are told around campfires.
Finally, a comment on the ending. Due to the nature of the film, the ending may be fulfilling and gratifying for some, but a dissapointment to others. As with any movie, the audience is asked to suspend belief so that the tale can be told.
