Mr. Nobody walks into a small-town police station on Christmas Even and begins confessing to a series of murders. Refusing to provide his name or any other information, the cops are confused. The bigger problem is that the murders haven’t happened, yet.

Mr. Nobody walks into a police station on Christmas Eve, confesses to six murders, and is immediately arrested. Initially refusing to talk, the police find Mr. Nobody has no fingerprints, no identification, and they have no clue who he might be. As the yet to happen murders begin to take place, the cops realize Mr. Nobody has brought them a lot more than a simple confession.
Acting was mediocre in this one with Kilmer only presenting well because he wasn’t required to say much so the dark, brooding role fit him well. Neal overplayed his part repeatedly while feeling mismatched at the same time. McGillion and Cassini did somewhat better but it wasn’t quite enough and the acting overall felt shallow.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were pretty solid yet simple and fit the film well. Effects were well done, had a realistic feel, and helped perpetuate the somewhat supernatural feel of the film. Dialogue was okay but not exciting. Sound and soundtrack were okay.
Overall The Traveler feels like an entry level supernatural horror movie, focusing more on the story and suspense than the horror which is used primarily for punctuation. Kilmer fans, or those who enjoy light horror with suspense will enjoy this the most.
With violence, mild sexuality, and some gore this should be fine for older teens and above.
The Traveler is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 3 out of 5
