Blood Relatives and Mr Brooks

Two unusual films, both ending with unexpected twists and with more than a hint of film noir...

Donald Sutherland, as Inspector Carella, has to find the killer of a young girl whose cousin survived the attack.  Their family's wholesome public image hides a very different reality, and Carella slowly untangles a complex web of incest and ugly fantasy in Blood Relatives.

Kevin Costner, in Mr Brooks, plays restectable and highly successful businessman.  He has an invisible friend with whom he shares the hobby of murder.  They were about to call a halt to their activities when they acquire an unwanted side-kick (played by Dane Cook.)  Demi Moore excels in her role as a detective faced with a string of artistically-arranged corpses.
