This 2009 thriller stars Josh Lucas as Terry Bernard, a single father raising a daughter with a rare degenerative disease. With health issues of his own, Terry undergoes heart transplant surgery and almost immediately begins having memory flashes of the murdered donor’s final moments. When his new ticker recognizes one of the donors’ killers, Terry follows him and the vengeful heart begins to take control of his mind and body. His new heart wants revenge and if necessary, will take control to get it. Phillip Martin of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette says, “…a modern updating of Poe’s canonical short story, Tell Tale is an ingenious step up from the usual genre suspects…Possibly Josh Lucas’s best performance to date.”
Bob Ackerman will facilitate the post-film discussion. [2009, US, Runtime: 93 min, Rated R]
