Chicago's chief medical examiner Dr William Palmer (Rutger Hauer) uses his experience to pen a best-selling novel based on the grisly murders of a real-life serial killer. In the book, the culprit is brought to justice, but in real life he was never found. So when Palmer's editor disappears, leaving only a severed finger behind, it seems that the psychopath might have decided to return to his murderous ways. It is now a race against the clock, with Palmer using every trick in the book in a desperate attempt to track down the killer before further body parts start turning up.

Firstly no English subtitles---would have been helpful as some of the dialogue wasn't spoken directly at the viewer and at times sounded mumbled.The version I have is the Cinema Club dvd.
Secondly there were far too many plot holes during the film which made us ask why? how ? more than once.
Rutger Hauer has always been a favourite actor of mine and I suspect he was placed in this film to give some gravitas to his role as a former medical examiner turned novelist.There were certainly no other actors that I recognized in this.
Rutger was ok but seemed to tip-toe his way through the film without really adding much to the proceedings in my view.
Everybody to their own, this film has a preponderance of 5 star reviews from reviewers who have enjoyed it---this was just not my cup of tea and rather disappointing compared to other productions in this genre that I have watched.
Bone Daddy, is the title of a book, written by a retired pathologist within the film itself, who reflects on his days as a famous and brilliant forensic scientist. His book is about a serial killer who removes bones from his victims... while they are still alive. The son of the author of the book is also a pathologist, younger, but brilliant, and in constant dispute with his father.
With his father a prime suspect, (being the writer of the book), he sets out to find the Bone Daddy. One wonders, as the film proceded, if it is possible that the son is the killer, or his father, or both of them.....or the cop in charge of the investigation, or that creepy guy who got his copy of the book autographed in the bookstore, or that old friend of the family.
This film absorbed me, not least because it gave me all the evidence I needed, and from the begining of the film, you know who it is.......but at the same time, the film is filled with potential suspects. White males aged 25 to 45 with a morbid interest in forensics and pathology and psychology, are plentiful. Hence, we have a number of brilliant minds working to solve the case and find the killer......and consequently any number of potential suspects.
At the end of the film, I shouted "of course! I knew it!, it was him all along!"
But up until that point, I had only my suspicions. If you can figure this film out before the end, then you must either be a genius, or unhealthilly interested in the genre lol.
Probably the most intelligent mystery film ever made.
