Featuring Keanu Reeves (The Matrix film series, Point Break, Speed, My Own Private Idaho, The Devil’s Advocate, Constantine, The Day the Earth Stood Still), and Dennis Hopper (Speed, Super Mario Bros.), River’s Edge is both very dark, and very polarizing, mainly because the monsters in the film are simply too real.
