Faces in the Crowd is a 2011 British-Canadian-American crime drama horror thriller film written and directed by Julien Magnat,[1] starring Milla Jovovich, Julian McMahon, David Atrakchi, Michael Shanks, Sandrine Holt, and Sarah Wayne Callies.[2]


Anna Marchant (Milla Jovovich) witnesses a murder by serial killer Tearjerk Jack (David Atrakchi). Jack chases and attacks her, but she eludes him by falling from a bridge. Anna wakes from a coma one week later and is diagnosed with prosopagnosia, also known as "face blindness". Able to recognize objects but not faces, she works with police detective Sam Kerrest (Julian McMahon) to stop Tearjerk Jack before he can murder her.



This movie is the second feature of writer/director Julien Magnat. Production began May 8, 2010 in and around Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and principal photography wrapped June 13, 2010.[3]
