About the Film

“In the Eyes of a Killer” is the chilling story of Jack Newman, a lecturer at the local University living a happy life in a small coastal town in the South. Jack is preparing for a new life with his fiancée, Gwen, and has finally adapted to the challenges of a sudden accident that left him blind several years ago.

An opportunity arises for Jack to become the first patient of an experimental eye surgery. After regaining his sight, Jack begins to slowly take on the characteristics of the eye’s late donor, a state executed psychopath. As Jack begins to lose the psychological battle being raged in his mind, Gwen uncovers some startling information and is faced with the most difficult choice of her life. Which will prevail, true love or the primal instinct to survive? The startling conclusion will leave viewers stunned.
