Damaged | Gianni Capaldi on the Chase of a Serial Killer

Gianni Capaldi in Damaged

There is a certain attraction to watching films of the police chasing a mysterious serial killer. It always seems like the murderer is two steps ahead of the law enforcement. In Damaged, the serial killer is a deranged culprit who is close to the police, keeping the audience guessing.

The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Vincent Cassel, Gianni Capaldi, John Hanna, and Kate Dickie.

Here is the official synopsis:

How do you catch a brilliant monster? When a sadistic murderer surfaces in Scotland, terrified local authorities call on a Chicago police detective who investigated a killing spree with the same horrific pattern five years earlier. Samuel L. Jackson and Vincent Cassel star in this shocking thriller about two detectives with tortured pasts trying to stop a merciless serial killer before he claims his next victim.
