Sam Reide has the ability to travel back to any time or location within his own lifetime. His sheltered sister, Jenna, monitors him while he lies in a bathtub full of icy water. He first went back in time to save his sister from a fire when, but he ended up changing the timeline as his parents die in the fire.

Sam's girlfriend, Rebecca, was murdered a few years before and her sister, Elizabeth, believes that the killer is still out there, which means Rebecca's murderer, that is behind bars and is going to be executed within days, is innocent.

Sam goes back in time to the night of Rebecca's murder, just to see who the killer is, but then he tries to stop her death, only resulting in her being murdered in a different manor. When he returns back to the present, things have changed and he is now a murder suspect in not just Rebecca's death, but in a string of murders. Each time he goes back to find the murderer he changes his current timeline, and one by one his most trusted allies are being murdered.

I have never seen the previous films in the series and after a quick Google search, I was surprised to learn that each movie has a different main character and plot. I only watched The Butterfly Effect 3 because it came in a two disc set with seven other After Dark Horrorfest III films. The movie started out a little confusing for me with all the flashbacks, but once I figured out what was going on I was glued to screen. There is a lot of blood/gore throughout the movie, not to mention the graphic sex scene, but deep down there is an intriguing plot that keeps you guessing who the killer really is. Honestly, I didn't have a clue who the killer was until he or she pulled off the mask, which reminds of Jason's feed sack from Friday the 13th, Part 2 (Deluxe Edition). For a low-budget horror film, the plot was never predictable and the majority of the acting was decent. Now, I'm interested in watching the first two movies.
