And Now This: Pruitt Taylor Vince Creeps Me Out

“His irises tremble violently as the camera fixes on his glassy gaze, and before you know it, you've once again been entranced by the character with whom you're unsure if you should fear or sympathize.”—Actor Bio on Blockbuster Online

I just got finished watching Captivity, one of the After Dark Horrorfest films starring Elisha Cuthbert as a kidnapped supermodel with Daniel Gillies and Pruitt Taylor Vince as her captors.

Vince gives an unsettling performance as the psychotic Ben Dexter, who owns his own catering business to finance his and his brother's hobby of capturing young women and keeping them in the basement. Vince’s roles always leave me with a feeling of lingering creepiness, so I thought I’d do a brief review of the weirdos he’s played in the past.

Monster (2003) Vince plays Gene the stuttering "John" in Monster, one of the many victims of Aileen Wuornos, a prostitute from Daytona Beach who became a serial killer.








Identity (2003)
Malcolm Rivers is sentenced to death for several vicious murders carried out at a motel. His execution is halted when a diary is discovered that reveals the one responsible for the murders is one of Malcom’s many multiple personalities.




Constantine (2005)
Father Hennessy is a man of the cloth who is plagued by drinking problems and hears voices or “soul traffic.” He wears a protective amulet to ward off evil, but is deceived by a demon into literally drinking himself to death and drowns.


Dead in the Water (1991)
In this made for TV movie, Lou Rescetti is an unscrupulous ex con who helps Charlie Deegan off his wife and then seeks revenge when he gets double crossed.
