88minutes (US movie 2007)


synopsis : The film opens in 1997 with a scene of an unknown assailant breaking into the home of two sisters. After one goes to sleep, the attacker subdues one of them using halothane and murders her after raping her and torturing her by hanging her upside down with latches and rope. The assailant then rapes and tortures the other sister when she wakes up but she is not killed. After police questioning, the attacker, Jon Forster, is convicted by a jury after forensic professor Jack Gramm testifies against him in court. As Gramm leaves, Forster taunts him, saying "Tick tock Doc."
Nine years later, on the day Forster is to be executed at midnight, several similar torture murders with very similar modi operandi occur. Gramm is questioned but released. On the way to his class, he receives a threatening phone call telling him that he has 88 minutes to live. He reports the threat to Shelly, his secretary, and brushes off the threat. He receives another call while teaching, and he becomes suspicious of the students. A dean, Carol, enters the classroom and warns of a bomb threat, telling everyone to leave. Gramm finds written threats in the classroom. He goes to the parking lot to see that his car has been vandalized with a similar threat.click here for complete info.the link is the original source of the synopsis article,I just want to share it with the reader aside to my personal comment.
