The Investigative Support Unit ("Mindhunters" is slang for the ISU) is the FBI's special force that has assisted state and local police in cracking some of the United States' most notorious serial murder cases. Mindhunters specialize in understanding and profiling the chemistry and mechanical workings of the brain in these serial criminals. Mindhunters train in a multidisciplinary capacity, including highly demanding field training and research of such murderers as Charles Manson and David Berkowitz (the Son of Sam). See more »

One of the best of its kind.
17 June 2004 | by (Flensburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

No Spoilers Ahead

I saw the movie last night in the "sneak preview". I had no idea what kind of movie it was, except for the genre "thriller". Thriller is not right. It is more a "Thriller/Psycho/Horror Movie"

Most of the movie you had no time to get breath. It has a really good atmosphere and good actors. You never know what will happen next and you are really shocked the whole time.

Thats what my experience with that movie was, but i have to say that i did not know anything about the content of the movie, i did not see one trailer of it and i read no comment of it before watching it.

I have to admit, that there are several parts which are not logic or seems to be not logic, but it doesn't destroy the atmosphere, because you have no time to think about it during watching the movie.

I would not watch it a second time, because the shocking effects would not work anymore, but i give this movie 7 points.

By the way: there are really morbid and cruel scene's in it, i hadn't expected that.

I can't understand "illegal alien51"'s comment. I liked it!

( I hope my English is not so bad, because i am not used to write or speak English a lot )
