As Good as Dead Details


Three members of an extremist cult kidnap and torture a prominent photojournalist who they believe murdered their revered leader in this twisting psychological thriller starring Cary Elwes, Andie MacDowell, and Frank Whaley. The widow of late cult leader Reverend Kalahan, Helen (MacDowell) is determined to seek revenge against the man who murdered her husband. But in a tragic twist of fate Helen, her dangerously unstable son, Jake (Matt Dallas), and their sadistic enforcer, Aaron (Whaley), discover that they may have targeted the wrong man. The more the trio interrogates the terrified Ethan (Elwes), the more apparent it becomes that Helen, Jake, and Aaron may have escalated a situation that no one can walk away from untarnished. As Helen grows increasingly convinced of Ethan's innocence, cold-blooded killer Aaron vows to leave no witnesses, and attempts to manipulate Jake into taking his side. Meanwhile, Ethan's estranged wife, Kate (Nicole Ansari-Cox), attempts to call Ethan when he fails to pick up their ten-year-old daugther, Sarah (Emma Kantor), at the predetermined time, and drives to his apartment to confront him personally. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
