Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Inspired by true events, this tense and haunting thriller follows Detective Souder (Sam Worthington), a homicide detective in a small Texan town, and his partner, transplanted New York City cop Detective Heigh (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as they track a sadistic serial killer dumping his victims' mutilated bodies in a nearby marsh locals call ''The Killing Fields.''

Though the swampland crime scenes are outside their jurisdiction, Detective Heigh is unable to turn his back on solving the gruesome murders. Despite his partner's warnings, he sets out to investigate the crimes. Before long, the killer changes the game and begins hunting the detectives, teasing them with possible clues at the crime scenes while always remaining one step ahead. When familiar local girl Anne (Chloë Grace Moretz) goes missing, the detectives find themselves racing against time to catch the killer and save the young girl's life.

Directed by Ami Canaan Mann, Produced by Michael Mann and Michael Jaffe, Texas Killing Fields also stars Jessica Chastain (Tree of Life, The Help), Jason Clarke (Public Enemies, FOX's ''Chicago Code'') and Stephen Graham (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, HBO's ''Boardwalk Empire''). Executive Produced by Bill Block, Paul Hanson and Ethan Smith, with music by Dickon Hinchliffe.

4.0 out of 5 stars YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU ARE AT, RIGHT HERE November 12, 2011
The film opens with the over used phrase, "Inspired by true events." Sam Worthington and Jeffrey Dean Morgan play two detectives in Texas City, Texas. They are investigating a murder of a young female while having to take care of domestic cases as a subplot. Jessica Chastain (The Help) plays CSI Det. Pam Stall. She is the ex-wife of Sam Worthington and investigating a disappearance in the "Killing Field." She requests the assistance of our two Texas City detectives who initially refuse because it is out of their jurisdiction. She is a "Dirty Harriet" type. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is from New York and plays the "good cop" as opposed to Worthington's "bad cop" role. Later we see their roles reverse. There has been 50 unsolved murders involving the Killing Field. Once a girl goes missing there, they are never found alive.

ChloŽ Grace Moretz plays a young troubled teen, taken in by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. When the killer decides to play a cat and mouse game with the cops, ChloŽ Grace Moretz becomes a missing pawn. The acting was excellent, even Worthington who I don't normally like. I enjoyed the steel guitar soundtrack. The plot lacked a good twist and needed a little more depth. If you enjoy a police crime drama, check it out. As a mystery... there are not enough characters for that.

F-bomb, no sex or nudity. Adult sex talk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best serial thriller since SEVEN February 4, 2012
This movie was a total shock for me! I read some of the reviews, and expected it to be a throw away. This movie is inspired film making. The acting is great. Everybody fits their part. The actors make their characters totally believeable.
Writing and directing are really inspired. This movie is NOT fact based, it is absorbing as a serial killer thriller however.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Truth is more horrid than Screenplay June 10, 2012
There is an area known as the "killing fields" in Texas, where 30 girls and young women have turned up dead since the 1970s. This stretch of land runs along I-45 between Houston and Galveston, Texas and is the bloodiest stretch of highway in America. Here are the basics on the murders that have haunted the area for decades. Just 50 miles long, over the past 38 years nearly 40 women and young girls have been murdered or vanished along this highway. Their bodies have been dumped in fields, parks and the many bodies of water in the area, usually in a sickening state. As of today, the killer is still on the loose. And detectives admit, they're no closer to catching him--although scientific advances could finally end the macabre dance of death. He first struck June 17, 1971. Colette Wilson, 13, had been dropped off from school band practice by the conductor at a bus stop. The young girl seemingly disappeared from the face of the earth. Five months later her nude body was discovered 40 miles away. She died of a single gunshot wound to the head and her flute was never located.

The story is grim and unfortunately so is the film version written by Don Ferrarone, a federal agent who investigated the slaughters, who has said `If you can just imagine having one of these little girls out of these young girls out here...and there's no chance for them to be rescued, to be helped. And they're on they're own.' It was the haunting faces of the lost that inspired Ferrarone to write the screenplay for the film.

The story for the film changes the names of everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is no Field of Dreams February 2, 2012
I had been waiting for this to be released and saw it on demand on Fios so I rented it and I'm very glad I did.I don't know which genre it actually fits in but I would put it under thriller/Mystery seeing as there is a mystery involved and it does thrill.
Sam Worthington and Jessica Chastain are great as ex spouses who are both detectives working on murder cases but work in different jurisdictions,Worthington's partner played by Jeffery Dean Morgan is much more sympathetic to Chastain's character 'CSI Det,Pam Stall' and starts to help her work the killing fields while still trying his best to help Worthington in there jurisdiction.Chastain gives a tough as nails performance that is both believable and fun to watch.
Everyone is amazing in this film including ChloŽ Grace Moretz who plays the daughter of a poverty stricken mother who likes to party and pleasure the local men so her daughter has to roam the streets most of the time.There are some disturbing scenes and images but nothing over the top or gory.
I don't want to give anything away but it's very riveting and memorable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspired By a True Story January 10, 2012
Loosely inspired by actual events, TEXAS KILLING FIELDS starts off rather slowly, but evolves into an engrossing crime drama with some excellent, shocking action sequences. Its major problem is that it presents viewers with more questions than it ultimately answers.

Apparently, over many decades, there has been a series of unsolved murders on a large piece of swampland, located between Houston, Texas and the Gulf Coast. The killings remain unsolved, in part, because police departments in different jurisdictions, for whatever reasons, did not share information. [I gleaned this data from the Internet, because it is not made clear in the movie.]

In this fictional screenplay, written by Donald F. Ferrarone and directed by Ami Canaan Mann (director Michael Mann's daughter), small town Texas cops Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Jessica Chastain are after a serial killer who is murdering young women and dumping their bodies in the swampland. Unlike with the real life homicides, they do solve their case, but there are a couple of intriguing, quite surprising "red herrings" along the way.

The performances in TEXAS KILLING FIELDS are first-rate, even if some of the character's motivations are not apparent in the script. What the film really lacks is some backstory, particularly for the detective played by Morgan, as well as a scene in which everything is put into context.

The DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment contains audio commentary by Mann and Ferrarone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting movie. Would recommend watching.
Moody and interseting story. I really enjoyed the acting and the story line. Not run of the mill. It is not non-stop action but the character development and intertwined stories... Read more
