  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Ignoring the advise of the prison warden (Hopper), psychologist Diana Purlow (Meyer) delves into the mind of serial killer Jesse Mowatt (Grover) to try and discover what makes him tick. But when an unexplainable event occurs and Mowatt avoids death by electrocution, Diana witnesses something so horrific and Unspeakable that she's convinced that Mowatt isn't just your average run-of-the-mill serial killer. (Tricia Littrell)
