Secret Window

secretwindow“The only thing that matters is the ending.” Mort Rainey

(2004) starring Johnny Depp and John Turturro, directed by David Koepp (also wrote Panic Room). The story is based on the book by Stephen King.

Johnny Depp stars as Mort Rainey, a reclusive heartbroken writer suffering from writers block who is being terrorized by a menacing stranger accusing him of plagiarism.

Secret Window is one of my all-time favorite psychological thrillers. It is a terrifying edge-of-your-seat story that will keep you guessing until the very end. I picked this movie for this weeks review because it is timeless and its a clear example of what can happen to the mind when one traumatic event changes the course of your life. I always say, ‘there is a fine line between truth and reality.’ We are all capable of unspeakable terror when we are pushed to the limit. No one is exempt!

Stephen King is a genius at bringing the literary world to life. Johnny Depp truly captures the essence of suspense in every scene. His performance is classic! John Turturro also gives a lot of depth to his passion for writing. So the question is: Is his character “Shooter” just a wild figment of Mort’s imagination or does he really exist?


His strength is made perfect in weakness.
