I Am Not a Serial Killer full movie review - Original and fresh movie. Is that enough?
**** May contain strong spoilers ****
This is a review made by StoneDraim... and that means that if you want to read a probably different kind of review, keep reading....
This is my personal experience, my personal point of view/perspective and my personal opinion... and my opinion is just one of like 7 billions in this world.
Just a few thoughts about this one. An original script is followed through in this very well made low budget, indie movie. Christoffer Lloyd is the "big name" showcasing in here. And...as in some indie and low budget movies, they kind of illuminating the name of the "big star" to give the audience the feeling that that actor will fill a big part or major part of the movie. That kind of thing is twisted around here, as the pre credits puts Mr. Lloyd besides, after and below everybody else and even so, he plays a major part in this one.
Slow paced combination of thriller, drama and horror. Worth a view. A crawling danger is with mysteria filling the picture, almost throughout the entire production. Interesting tweak around a teenagers deep, dark thoughts of being a serial killer. Highly intelligent young man that is labeled (yes, I call it that as society want to put "labels" on most things) sociopath. And... further down the road, we witness these "sociopaths" being extremely successful co-workers in various aspects as "Bones", "CSI" and similar types of movies and series. People, with an vast interest of a specific topic and an extraordinaire ability of some kind, resulting in that the social skills is being thrown out the window, consciously and/or subconsciously.
If you can muster the strength and endurance to get yourself through the slow daily life parts, I can recommend this movie if you are looking for something very different. If this movie had been cut down to about 70 minutes, it could have been more than approved.
An ending that really fits and makes the whole picture step up a little. Good scene in the end... really good, actually! In fact, when it is all set and done, I am glad I watched this. A nice little horror, thriller, drama, indie flick! And... nn fact, I could see myself watching this again after a while.
Over to the movie as a product: - The production : Gives the impression of being a low budget movie. Even so, good special effects and a great monster. - The actors : I am looking forward to see Max Records in more movies. He got real potential and made this movie believable, along with Christoffer Lloyd... just watch 1 hour and 25 minutes into this one. I will keep my eyes open for Max Records. Felt nice to see Mr. Lloyd act again in a more serious matter, after seen his horrible and over acted appearance in Piranha 3DD. - Entertainment : The story itself is keeping me wondering if this is good or bad... keeping me wondering what will happen in the end. - Age : 15, due to violence and a touch of blood, gore and monster
5,7 out of 10. (The final rate is based most on my own entertainment of the movie. Short elucidation of the rating: 6 Nice production. Good movie. 5 Approved.)
