Identity, a 2003 serial killer thriller directed by James Mangold, has gained cult classic status over the years. However, the movie’s entire narrative is so reliant on the third act twist that it doesn’t have any rewatch value whatsoever. The movie is loosely inspired by Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, where 10 strangers end up in a remote motel to ride out a nightmarish storm. However, the bodies start dropping, leading everyone to turn on each other as suspicions deepen over who the real mass murderer is before things get so heated they end up saving the killer some trouble until there’s only one of them left standing. Suffice to say, you don’t find out until the end, and it certainly isn’t who anyone was expecting.
While Identity earned its status as an enduring favorite for a reason, it’s also fair to say that it doesn’t have any rewatch value whatsoever. Either there’s a lot of people in disagreement or the film is finding a brand new audience, though, seeing as FlixPatrol has named it as one of the most-watched titles on Rakuten.
