A wild ride inside the mind of a serial killer, The Cell is a movie that leads viewers on a strange visual and psychological journey.

Catherine Deane (Lopez) is a child therapist working on an experimental new technology that allows direct access into someone else's mind. However, the benefits of the technology are still unproven.

Meanwhile FBI Agent Peter Novak (Vaughn) is hard at work tracking down a serial killer who traps women in a small glass cell and drowns them.

Novak is able to identify the killer as Carl Stargher (D'Onofrio), but before he can be arrested, he falls into a coma.

The only way to rescue his recent victim is for Catherine to enter his mind using the experimental technology.

However, Stargher's mind is so warped and frightening, there's no way to know what Deane will encounter inside it.

A must-see for fans of dark psychological thrillers
