Kevin Costner portrays Mr. Earl Brooks, a business executive whose alter ego, Marshall (William Hurt) pressures him to commit random killings. Costner's character has been dubbed the 'Thumbprint Killer' by authorities, a reference to the trademark he leaves behind at each crime scene: the bloodied thumbprints of his victims on a lampshade.
Brooks realizes that Marshall is a figment of his imagination, though traditional psychiatric treatment is not a viable option since it would lead to self-incrimination. To compensate, he attends a 12-step program for recovering alcoholics, secretly replacing an addiction to booze with his homicidal obsession.
Mr. Brooks recuperated more than twice its $20 million budget, earning a total of $48 million internationally.
