Primal Fear

"Sooner or later, a man who wears two faces forgets which one is real."

An arrogant, high-powered attorney takes on the case of a poor altar boy found running away from the scene of the grisly murder of the bishop who has taken him in. The case gets a lot more complex when the accused reveals that there may or may not have been a 3rd person in the room. The intensity builds when a surprise twist alters everyone's perception of the crime and what happens next...

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In one of the first scenes in Martin Vail's office, he uses the word "illegibly" instead of the correct word "allegedly."
  • When trying out for the role of the altar boy, Edward Norton went into the audition in character, complete with stutters and all, and this won his role.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The blood at the scene of the murder (where Mr.Vail comes in some days after the murder), and the blood on Aaron's sneakers, shown in the court, should be brown, because some time has passed and blood coagulates. When blood coagulates it turns from red to brown.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The video recording of both psychiatrist's interviews with Aaron do not match the meetings we originally saw.
