I will be the first to admit I have not yet read the book by Ted Dekker, but I heard about this from a church I once attended. This was a very unique movie, I actually have a copy of this in my library. I was intrigued by this, because I have seen a sample of Christian movies, but many I've seen do not involve the thriller element and so the concept in itself made me curious.
Thr3e is about a seminary student by the name of Kevin Parsons who after finishing up a school day starts driving home when his phone rings. When he answers the phone an unfamiliar voice threatens him and after getting out of the car in a panic the vehicle explodes. Police tell him that he may have encountered a serial killer known as "the riddle Killer" and he is the only one out of all the others to survive_ but why? Why does this unknown man threaten him, keeps demanding for him to "tell the truth", and how does he know him?
I honestly did not expect for the ending to turn out exactly as it did. It's a bit scary in how evil can be so unique yet so familiar at the same time. Overall I liked watching this and hopefully those who read this also enjoyed the novel too. It could have been a little less weird though with "Princess", I get the idea she was a bad Auntie, but yeah weird stuff like that kind of reminds me of some of the mainstream horror films out there and as a personal preference I'm not much of a fan of those. I also think maybe the antagonist said the word "Puke" a little too often, I mean I understand it's a Christian movie and those avoid swear words for good reason of course, but there are other insults that could have been used; unless that was how Dekker originally wrote it then it's good to be realistic to the book I suppose. I also liked how there is a bible study guide attached to the inside of the movie relating to anger and the flesh.
The plot of the movie is good, I expected more suspense. The movie did not come through for me. Maybe I will have to try his books, books are usually better where ones imagination will take over for what is left out of the movie.
I watched this movie and it was good bt a little freaky. It was not what i expected it to be. It was a good movie but it was kind of sad in a way. I am 16 and i enjoyed but the crazy aunt really freaked me out.
