Sanctimony (2000)

Film details


Thriller. Detectives Jim Renart and Dorothy Smith are under pressure from their supervisor to solve the grisly case of the so-called Monkey Killer in a small American town. The unknown killer appears to be adhering to the adage `See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil', and has mutilated his victims accordingly by removing their eyes, ears and tongues. The two detectives get a break when a young stockbroker, Tom Gerrick, agrees to questioning having discovered the latest victim, and it becomes apparent to Renart and Smith that he is very probably the killer. However, they only have around two days to prove it before federal agents take over the case.
