Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh)
IN CINEMAS MAY 5th
RICHARD THORNCROFT is a pretentious actor in the twilight of his career. He had a brief brush with fame in the late 1980s playing MINDHORN: a maverick detective from the Isle of Man with a robotic eye, but now his star has faded, and the only parts he can get are in commercials for orthopaedic socks.
When a delusional killer phones the Isle of Man police saying ‘I’ll call the police station tomorrow at 4pm and if I’m not speaking to Detective Mindhorn in person, more people are going to die,’ the police decide they have to find the actor who played Mindhorn to take the killer’s next call and lure him into custody.
