Sam Worthington and Jeffrey Dean Morgan star as two police detectives investigating a series of murders in ‘Texas Killing Fields,’ which opens exclusively today at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas.

Based on a true story, the killings took place over a period from the 70s to the 90s; the bodies of the murder victims were found in a marsh outside Texas City, near Houston. Worthington plays a local detective, while Morgan essays a transplanted New York City cop. The cast is strong, including Chloe Grace Moretz as a potential victim, Jessica Chastain (with whom Worthington teamed in the recently-released ‘The Debt’), and Jason Clarke. Ami Canaan Mann directed.

Reviews have been mixed, but true crime buffs may want to check it out, and the cast certainly warrants attention as well.
