In this sci-fi thriller, child psychiatrist Catherine Deane (Jennifer Lopez) has developed a technique that allows her to travel through the minds of her patients. When Stargher (Vincent D’Onofrio), a serial killer who methodically drowns his victims and performs bizarre rituals with their bodies, falls into a coma, FBI agent Peter Novak (Vince Vaughn) asks Deane to enter the killer’s psyche in hopes of finding a missing girl. However, once Deanne enters Stargher’s mind, she finds getting out will be harder than she thought. While The Cell may not seem as if it belongs in Nü Metal Mondays, when you watch it, the trüth begins to reveal itself through ostentatious storytelling, hypnotic imagery, nihilism, melodramatics, and Vincent D'Onofrio's teeth-clenching turn as the serial killer Stargher. Turn off your brain, let your guts take the lead, and swim in the hellacious, otherworldly mindscape of Tarsem Singh's The Cell.
