“Nefarious,” starring Emmy winner Sean Patrick Flanery and Jordan Belfi (“Entourage”), is a riveting new thriller. It will be released in theaters on April 14.

The horror mystery was directed by Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon, both of which co-wrote the ingenious screenplay.

The synopsis is: On the day of his scheduled execution, a convicted serial killer (played by Sean Patrick Flanery) gets a psychiatric evaluation during which he claims he is a demon, and further claims that before their time is over, the psychiatrist (Jordan Belfi) will commit three murders of his own.

Sean Patrick Flanery and Jordan Belfi have great feisty chemistry together, where at times, it is so intense, the energy is palpable through the screen.

Jordan Belfi is a triumph as Dr. James Martin, and he pulls off intricate acting work in sophisticated scenes.

Sean Patrick Flanery is a true force of nature, where he delivers a gripping performance for the ages. He is able to invest humanity, vulnerability, and believability in his complex title character.

It was both a physically and mentally demanding role for Flanery but he nailed it. This is perhaps his most profound acting work along with “Born a Champion.”

The screenplay allows for resonance, and it is filled with several twists and turns that the audience will not see coming.

Most importantly, “Nefarious” is a movie that will certainly spark serious conversations with viewers once its over. Grab some popcorn or a bottle of wine (if over the age of 21), and allow Sean Patrick Flanery and Jordan Belfi to lure you in. “Nefarious” garners 4.5 out of 5 stars.
