This is based on a true story:

I gave this one 4 1/2 Stars and I found it very entertaining. A small town named Churchville (imagine that!) is disrupted by a series of disappearances of young children. During the investigation led by Detective Meg (Eliza Dushku) she notices a picture of a missing girl, and when she speaks to the girl's mother, she realizes that she always wore a medallion of St. Philomena, Protector of Little Children (Seriously?) and the medallion was missing. Apparently a "Trophy" for the killer.

Detective Meg begins to have visions and feels "touched" by the missing children. Her bosses however, think she is losing her mind. They suggest she take time off and see a therapist. Meg sees Carla's ghost and talks to her. At the brink of suicide, Detective Meg slits her wrists. She is then diagnosed with "Adult Onset Schizophrenia. She is in an institution for 2 years, loses her fiance and her career.

As she returns to her job as a hired consultant, she is given a "desk" job and her ex fiance is now the new Captain of the force. One quote during their dialogue that stuck out was when the Captain says to Meg: "That's the first dumb thing I have ever heard you say!" Her reply: "Then I guess you haven't been listening."

During the Walsh-Castillo investigations, both girls were found with traces of the same cat hair on their clothes. As a normal procedure all area pedophiles are questioned. A common thread that all the victims share is that they all went to camp and were all Catholic.

There's a few persons of interest and Carl Tamer (Bill Moseley), a social worker, is questioned. Another thread that tied the girls together was that they both had asthma and both visited the same aquarium in the past year. Bot girls are also linked to St. Michael's Church. Meg continues to have visions and so she continues with her work.

All in all, the movie is fast paced and at the end you find out who the real killer is: You will have to watch the movie to find out who it is!

      I'm sorry sophia! I guess I should put a "Spoiler Alert" at the beginning of the article. I hope that you can still enjoy the movie!
