Just in case you’re looking for a dose of the old indie horror scene, and you live near one of the handful of theatres that’s showing Downloading Nancy, you may want to swing in and check it out. It’s got a really solid cast list, including old favorites like Jason Patric and Rufus Sewell, along with terror hotties Maria Bello and Amy Brenneman, the latter of which I never expected to call a terror hottie, ever.
An unhappy housewife, the titular Nancy, schedules a professional assassination on an unlikely source—herself. But when she sets it up with a guy she meets on the internet, she finds that sometimes, strange things happen as the guy she’s hired to kill her instead falls in love with her.
Not exactly the kind of thing we’re used to, huh? It could be a bit of a rom-com snooze if done poorly but if done well it could be a pretty solid suspense piece. I’m personally going to let this one pass to video, but you may find it a bit more valuable.
