Beware This Traveler

CAPTURED by DEATHZ HEAD A.K.A. THE CHILLER on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 3:37 PM

Here's a movie I would describe as very different. "The Traveler" was a film that I thought would be about time travel. But nope, it wasn't. Was it about a guy traveling? Kinda. A guy was traveling but only passing through town to go to the local jail. Val Kilmer does a good job of playing this creepy guy from out of nowhere. What does he want? Why go to the jail? He says he wants to confess a murder. He looks like a murderer honestly. His demeanor is that of some possessed possibly. You really can't tell at this point. The cops obviously aren't going to be afraid at this point so naturally they lock him up in...


Here's a movie I would describe as very different. "The Traveler" was a film that I thought would be about time travel. But nope, it wasn't. Was it about a guy traveling? Kinda. A guy was traveling but only passing through town to go to the local jail. Val Kilmer does a good job of playing this creepy guy from out of nowhere. What does he want? Why go to the jail? He says he wants to confess a murder. He looks like a murderer honestly. His demeanor is that of some possessed possibly. You really can't tell at this point. The cops obviously aren't going to be afraid at this point so naturally they lock him up in a cell and try to figure out what to do with him. We get flashbacks of agonizing scenes of torture and learn that they all maimed a guy as a group, all the cops on duty that night. That's messed up. They thought a guy in the past was a kidnapper and killer of a young girl. Slowly they start to think this guy resembles that other one. Was he here for vengeance? Revenge? They really didn't figure it out too well so the suspense is intact there. One by one they die at the hands of an unseen killer. I do they they deserved what they got so you don't know what to think at this point. This is where I started to suspect time travel as a possibility because I thought "How could he talk about a murder and have it happen at the same time?" and then it became clear. Well, sort of. No I take that back, it really wasn't that clear. If there's one thing this movie did a good job of it was suspense. It keeps you wondering what's really going on? Is it time travel? Is it a ghost? It's really hard to get into it without giving something away so I hope you don't mind. It later turns out that the guy was the murderer they were after. So why would his spirit want vengeance if he was bad? Well, they did torture him in a very gruesome way so maybe they all deserved punishment. A demon maybe? If it were maybe it took them down with it. No matter how you look at it they did deserve what happened to them, even if the guy was a very, very bad man. It's a strange movie because it comes off like a ghost tale about a murderer wanting justice and it never really explains what he was. Maybe the point is they were no better than him in the end for turning into such ugly people. They could have just shot him if they wanted vengeance but they weren't even sure if he was the right guy. That's where I think they crossed the line. Not only that, but torture instead of a quick gunshot. They all doomed themselves and in the end when they're all dead nobody would know what happened but those sort of forces never reveal themselves.A supernatural occurrence that vanished. It's not your run of the mill movie but it isn't quite what you'd imagine either. No time travel. Possible moral issues. I liked how he confessed at it happened at the same time. That was very cool. It would have made more sense to me if he were innocent maybe. And if there was a cause, whether it be an apparition or some other. He may have been bad but those cops were bad. So in the end I think it works well enough though it does have some room for improvement. It would make a good late night rental. It can make you think if you let it I suppose.
