Psychological thriller Twisted stars Ashley Judd as Jessica Shepard, a San Franciscan officer whose career is on the up. Samuel L Jackson plays her mentor and foster father, Chief Mills, while Andy Garcia is her new partner. When a number of Jessica's old lovers turn up dead, the police begin to suspect she is being stalked. Mills insists she remain on the case so the killer can be baited out. The film’s impressive cast and director, Philip Kaufman, whose credits include The Unbearable Lightness of Being and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, could not save Twisted from critical panning and failure at the box office.
