BESTSELLER is a Michigan-made movie worth seeing, if only to confirm that competent Wolverine film crews and casts can come together to create high-value, high-tension entertainment. Melissa Anschutz and DJ Perry team up once again under the skillful direction of Chrissy Rohn to deliver riveting performances even if some scenes are drawn out a bit too long. Good hand-held camera work brings the viewer into the chases and establishes a voyeuristic point of view during the shower and bedroom scenes that does not exceed standards of decency. Terror grows as horror is established more in the mind than on screen but the loud echoes of Hitchcock and Stephen King were a bit overpowering in my book diminishing what was starting to be a pure white knuckles experience. My criticism here is minor in the wake of what writers Travis Goddard and Chris Knight and director Rohn have brought to the screen, As the identify of the bad guy or guys comes to light, viewers will continue to be surprised by twists and turns and left to wonder if Bestseller II is in the offing. If or when Bestseller comes to your city, be sure to see it, if only to support home-grown talent. You won't be disappointed in any case.

Bestseller is a best thriller
Remind Me To Never Be A Literary Agent
I saw Bestseller on opening night in Grand Rapids, MI starring Melissa Anschutz, DJ Perry, and Ralph Lister. Based on the novel Bestseller by Christopher Knight, I was enthralled and began squirming in my seat as the movie built to a twisting crescendo. Superbly acted by Mellisa Anshultz as Anne Harper, a literary agent based in the Chicago, the film takes you into her personal and work life and doesn't let you go until the final credits. Supported by great performances by DJ Perry, and Richard Lister, Bestseller will make you think twice before you book a cabin alone in Northern Michigan... or anywhere! In short, it was... a great movie!
Well done to everyone involved!
My wife and I saw the movie in Lansing MI on Tuesday July 21st.
Well done everyone involved.
You made my wife jump a couple times.
The acting was superb! From Melissa Anschutz, DJ Perry, Terrence Knox to Anthony Hornus any many more not mentioned.
Great job with the sound design / composing Dennis Therrian.

Wish you guys all the success with this movie.
