Riddle is a mystery thriller that was released in 2013. The film is directed and written by John O. Hartman and Nicholas Mross. The movie stars Elisabeth Harnois, Val Kilmer, and Diora Baird in the lead roles. The story of Riddle revolves around a small town where a teenage girl goes missing, and her disappearance causes chaos and confusion among the town's inhabitants.

The film opens with the disappearance of Holly Teller (Harnois), a popular high school student from a small town in Pennsylvania. Holly's father, David (Kilmer), is a local sheriff, and he is determined to find his daughter at any cost. David starts the investigation and soon finds out that there are no leads, and the case is going nowhere. In the meantime, Holly's best friend, Raina (Baird), helps David in the investigation.

As the investigation progresses, more and more secrets about the town and its people come to light. David discovers that Holly had some deep secrets, and she was not as innocent as she seemed. As he digs deeper, he uncovers a web of lies and deceit that leaves him questioning everything he thought he knew about his town and its people.

David's investigation takes him to the town's high school, where he meets a group of students who seem to know more about Holly's disappearance than they are letting on. The group consists of Jake (Ryan Malgarini), a loner who is obsessed with Holly; Amber (Benita Robledo), the school's popular cheerleader; Mike (Nicholas Guest), the high school's principal, and his wife, Joanna (Jackie Geary), the school's guidance counselor.

David also suspects that there is a connection between Holly's disappearance and an unsolved murder that occurred 20 years ago. He delves deeper into the past and uncovers a dark secret that has haunted the town for decades.

As David gets closer to solving the mystery, he realizes that he cannot trust anyone, and he must rely on his instincts and wits to crack the case. The twist and turns in the plot keep the audience guessing until the very end, and the climax is both unexpected and satisfying.

The film is shot beautifully, and the bleak and desolate landscape of the town adds to the overall feeling of despair and hopelessness. The movie's score is haunting and eerie, and it complements the mood of the film perfectly.

All three lead actors deliver impressive performances. Kilmer is excellent as the emotionally torn father, and Harnois delivers a standout performance as the teenage girl whose secrets are slowly revealed. Baird's portrayal of Raina, Holly's best friend, is also noteworthy.

In conclusion, Riddle is an engaging and thought-provoking mystery thriller that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats until the very end. The movie expertly weaves intricate plotlines and characters with a haunting and eerie atmosphere to create a truly unforgettable experience.
