Freeze Frame ★★ 2004 (R)

Sean Vail (Evans) was accused of multiple murders but released on a technicality. Ten years later, Sean's paranoia is in full bloom and he obsessively videotapes every moment of his life so he will have an alibi if it's ever needed, which happens when a new victim is discovered. But Sean can't account for his whereabouts because the tapes of those specific hours are mysteriously missing. Brit Evans is best known for his comedy so this psycho-thriller is a real departure. Strong visually, the flick falls apart at the end. 90m/C DVD . IR GB Lee Evans, Sean McGinley, Rachael Stirling, Ian McNeice, Colin Salmon, Rachel O'Riordan; D: John Simpson; W: John Simpson; C: Mark Garret; M: Debbie Wiseman.
