A mysterious drifter blows into a small own on Christmas Eve, and sets off a string of gruesome events that threaten the lives of six police officers in this thriller starring Val Kilmer. As the townspeople settle in for the holiday and darkness washes over the town, a man (Kilmer) enters the local police station and confesses to committing multiple murders. Now, with each new detail the stranger reveals, it becomes increasingly clear that the real nightmare is only beginning. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film seems to be straining at times for an existentialism way outside of its grasp. This isn't Camus; it's Rod Serling by way of Clint Eastwood's High Plains Drifter."
‑ Brian Holcomb, CinemaBlend.com
"Kilmer's coasting, but who could blame him? 15 years ago he was Batman and now he's in the wilds of Canada surrounded by local actors forced to act menacing for the director of Hammerhead: Shark Frenzy. I'd be sad too."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"Even by the questionable standards of the straight-to-video arena, The Traveler comes off as an unwatchable and thoroughly aggravating cinematic experience..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"You know exactly what's happening about ten minutes in and how the whole thing is going to unfold."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The Traveler yet another feature film with only a half-hour Twilight Zone episode materials' worth in it. That's not to say it's not worth a look, but don't expect too much."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Sci-Fi Weekly
