The Frozen Ground (2013)

An Alaska State Trooper partners with a young woman who escaped the clutches of a serial killer to bring the murderer to justice.

Basically OK crime drama with some good performances doesn't add anything new to the genre.

Maltin**: "Sordid, fact-based account...well made and well acted, but it wallows in graphic depictions of the worst kind of violence against women that it claims to be condemning. This is entertainment?"

The Lovely Bones (2009)

A young girl is murdered and watches over her family - and her killer - from purgatory.

Although obviously made with a lot of talents involved the director overdid the phantasmagorical elements on the verge to kitsch.

On renewed viewing: I still think this movie could have been better.

Maltin **1/2: "Well-made, well-acted adaptation of Alice Sebold's bestseller suffers from overabundant, heavy-handed images of an Edenic afterlife that don't connect with the rest of the film."
