Same, Same but Different Scenes
Think watching the same scene in the same room will suffice?
Think again! Audiences are advised to watch scenes even if they seem to be in repeat mode. This gives clues to solving the mystery. After all, the serial killer could be mentally unstable and have varied recollections of the same events!
Themes of Family Tragedy, Murder and Revenge
Crack the Case: Mind Hunter is suitable for adults and youths ages 16 and above as the themes revolve around family tragedy, trauma and murder. Scenes are set around a university where the university students experience “friendship” issues.
Clues Aplenty, if You Know Where to Look
Apart from watching the actors, audiences will also need to search for clues in the many props displayed. In various rooms and spaces, there are displays of bulletin boards, personal items, books, and snack boxes all intentionally placed to give us a glimpse into the lives of the characters. So keep your eyes peeled to decipher the mystery.
We love the opportunity to get into the mind of a serial killer. What topped it off was the brilliant cast that gave us the creeps. To avoid giving too much away, the encounters with each character were memorable and spine-tingling.
Fret not – there are no elements of horror, gore or blood. There are no corpses or skeletons. However, the actors convincingly played their parts and gave us a closer glimpse into the psyche of a troubled youth, one who pines for true love and another who attempts to be an average university student.
Our Thoughts After Watching Crack the Case: Mind Hunter

The experience lasts for 1.5 hours.
