Revenge can be a very powerful device that some people are able to harness to its full extent. Although it is said that being that person who is seeking it, it can ruin your life once it is accomplished. Revenge may not be for everyone, but if the chance presents itself, you could be left asking yourself will it be worth it in the end?
On a stormy Christmas Eve night, the highway in front of Detective Alexander Black’s precinct is being shut down. Expecting a quiet night as it is that time of the year, a stranger enters the building and confesses to murder. Although the stranger does not have any blood on his hands, Black and his officers bring the man into the interrogation room and try to figure out what is going on with his claim.
Nobody believes the stranger at first as he fails to cooperate with the people that are detaining him. Not allowing anyone to know his name, the stranger goes by Mr. Nobody and that seems fine for the officers as they are trying to focus on the night in front of them. When Mr. Nobody starts to talk, he says that he has killed six people on this night and will confess to each murder individually. When the confessions start, the officer's past are called into question and whether or not they are innocent themselves.
A year earlier, a drifter was found around the area where Detective Black’s daughter was last seen alive. With a very aggressive interrogation which left the drifter in a coma for a year to the day, no resolution was found as the man would never confess to the murder of the little girl. All of the officers in the station tonight were involved in this event and all of the officers will have to face their past once again as Mr. Nobody confesses to each one of their murders. Being killed off one by one in the same methods they used against the drifter one year earlier, the officers have to find a way to stop Mr. Nobody from his confessions as they all cling to a small chance they can make it through the night.
The Traveler keeps an unblinking eye on Mr. Nobody as he has admitted to killing six people on Christmas Eve. Although none of the officers on duty tonight believe him, they are willing to listen to his confessions. One by one, the past of the officers is called into question as they all had part in an interrogation that went wrong when almost killing a drifter they believed kidnapped and killed Detective Black’s daughter. Everyone in the office is guilty on this night as Mr. Nobody confesses to killing each officer one by one. Each guilty party is killed in the manner they beat down the drifter one year prior and the only way to stop this supernatural killing spree is to find out who Mr. Nobody really is.
A very cold and disturbing look at how a group of people in a position of power take full advantage of it while trying to find out the truth. Thinking that it will not come back to haunt them in the long run seems foolish but since they were the only ones involved and knew what actually happened on that night, they felt as they were in the clear. Watching as each officer is judged in the same manner with the role they played in the interrogation is just genius. Even if The Traveler is not one of the scariest movies ever made, it will leave you wondering about the choices you have made in the past and if they will ever come back to face you again. Stay Scared.
