Seven deadly sins. Seven ways to die.
Psychological thriller about two detectives on the trail of a vicious serial killer who chooses his victims according to the seven deadly sins. The killer plans each murder down to the finest detail and as the detectives close in he patiently awaits the final confrontration.

"A nerve-jangling thriller with a gut-wrenching climax!  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Editor's Note
Gluttony, greed, sloth, envy, wrath, pride, and lust--these are the seven deadly sins that are being punished with unimaginable cruelty and calculation by an enigmatic killer in David Fincher's bleak thriller SEVEN. Set in a perpetually gloomy unnamed city, the film follows Somerset (Morgan Freeman), a retiring police detective, as he experiences his final week on the job, reluctantly working with assertive newcomer Mills (Brad Pitt). When an obese man is found brutally murdered in his home, the seasoned Somerset realizes this is no ordinary killing--someone tortured him because of his appetite. Slayings that reflect the sins of greed and sloth soon follow, leading Somerset and Mills on a desperate search to find the mysterious John Doe, who is responsible for these methodical murders. As the case builds to a startling conclusion, both Somerset and Mills become more involved than they ever could have imagined.

After a brief opening scene, SEVEN immediately cuts to a highly stylized title sequence. An intricate collage of books and photos, scissors and razors, and blood and skin eerily captures the dark, graphic tone of Fincher's intriguing mystery. The film cleverly avoids depicting most acts of violence onscreen, focusing instead on the cryptic remains of the crimes, allowing viewers to investigate along with the detectives. An example of nearly flawless filmmaking, the movie features a meticulously crafted screenplay, brilliant photography and design, sure-handed direction, and excellent performances from the entire cast. All of these elements combine to amazing effect in the film's unforgettably stunning finale.

"If we catch him and he turns out to be the Devil, I mean, Satan himself, that might live up to our expectations. But he's not the Devil----he's just a man."----William Somerset to David Mills about John Doe

"Why do we gotta sit here rotting, waiting till the lunatic does it again?"----Mills to Somerset |"It's dismissive to call him a lunatic. Don't make that mistake."----Somerset |"Come on, he's insane. Look! Right now he's probably dancing around in his grandma's panties, yeah, rubbing himself in peanut butter."----Mills

"This guy's methodical, exacting, and, worst of all, patient."----Somerset

"I admire you. I don't know how you found me but imagine my surprise. I respect you law enforcement agents more every day....I'll be readjusting my schedule in light of today's little...setback. I just had to call and express my admiration. Sorry I had to hurt one of you, but I didn't really have a choice, did I? You will accept my apology, won't you? I feel like saying more, but I don't want to ruin the surprise."----John Doe to Mills and Somerset over the phone

"'About the only thing we know about that guy right now is that he's independently wealthy, well educated, and totally insane."----police captain to Mills and Somerset about John Doe

But when this is done...when it's finished...it's going to be...people will barely be able to comprehend it, but they won't be able to deny."----John Doe to Mills|"Could the freak be anymore vague? I mean, as far as masterminds go..."----Mills to Somerset|"I really can't wait for you to see. I really can't. it's really going to be something."----John Doe|"Well, you know what? I'm going to be standing right next to you. So when this big thing happens, you be sure to let me know, because I wouldn't want to miss it."----Mills|"Don't worry...you won't. You won't miss a thing."----John Doe

"What do you got?"----Mills to Somerset as they scan the area|"A dead dog."----Somerset|"I didn't do that."----John Doe

"Ernest Hemingway once wrote, 'The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.' I agree with the second part."----Somerset in voice--over

Professional Reviews

Premiere
"...[Combines] furious action with an intelligent meditation..." - Recommended 04/01/1996 p.129

Rolling Stone
"...[A] nerve-jangling thriller....Envy and wrath are paired up for a twisted, gut-wrenching climax..." 10/05/1995 p.76-7

Sight and Sound
"...The most complex and disturbing entry in the serial killer genre since MANHUNTER..." 01/01/1996 p.49-50

Entertainment Weekly
"...[An] alluring aura of doom...[and] an apocalyptic fable for the milllennium..." -- Rating: B 03/29/1996 pp.71-2

Variety
"SEVEN is dark, grim and terrific. An intensely claustrophobic, gut-wrenching thriller....[With] a fine script, striking craftsmanship and a masterful performance by Morgan Freeman..." 09/25/1995

Chicago Sun-Times
"...A dark, grisly, horrifying and intelligent thriller....SEVEN is well-made...and uncompromising in the way it presents the disturbing details of the crimes..." 09/22/1995 p.35

Total Film
5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] thriller steeped in a decaying atmosphere of fear and loathing that even a filmmaker as consummate as Fincher will struggle to surpass." 11/01/2010

James Berardinelli's ReelViews 8 of 10
...It's refreshing to find an intelligent maniac who is not undone by a moment of sheer stupidity. From beginning to end, Seven's murderer has the situation under control. The police are his pawns, not the other way around... Seven may always be grim, dark, and rainy, but at least there's a little substance beneath the atmosphere.

Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide 7 of 10
...Exceptionally well-crafted, intelligently written, and well-acted thriller... but also extremely unsettling, almost oppressive at times.

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
Seven, a dark, grisly, horrifying and intelligent thriller, may be too disturbing for many people, I imagine, although if you can bear to watch, it you will see filmmaking of a high order... Seven is well-made in its details, and uncompromising in the way it presents the disturbing details of the crimes. It is certainly not for the young or the sensitive. - Roger Ebert
