A twisty thriller with an unabashedly nasty streak, and an almost theatrical taste for excess. -- Dennis Lim: Los Angeles Times

"Originally, Surveillance was about witches, But what I gravitated to were the elements of desolation and the idea of people watching each other. I also liked the idea of a thriller that right from the get-go lets you in on the fact that all these people are lying." -- Jennifer Lynch

What if nothing is as it seems? Somewhere deep inside the Santa Fe desert there have been a number of blood-curdling murders... a real killing spree.

The local police station is in disarray. Captain Billings, Officers Degrasso and Wright have apprehended three witnesses: Officer Jack Bennet, one of their own, tough, but affected by recent events; Bobby, young, high as a kite on cocaine; and Stephanie, eight years old, who has just witnessed her family being brutally murdered by two figures dressed in jumpsuits, gloves, boots, and horrifyingly disfiguring blue latex masks.

Even though everyone is ready to go, they are still waiting... waiting for the Feds to arrive. As the witnesses tell their stories one by one to the FBI agents who have now taken over, the murderous events unravel before our eyes. It becomes clear, little Stephanie knows something. And two more bodies have been found...
