I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016)

I actually enjoyed this movie despite its nonsensical plot and unbelievable characters. As a thriller with some horror and a lot of gore, I think it’s a good choice.

Here we have a main character from Where the Wild Things Are. It was cool seeing him on screen again, though I must admit I had to run and look him up. The other astounding feature of this film is the amazing and timeless Christopher Lloyd. He has a new “Marty” in a way in this odd film.

John Wayne Cleaver is a teenager by all accounts. He broods, he yells, he laughs. We never see him doing it, but he probably smokes pot! He is a student of killers and unwittingly has to track and eliminate a killer in their town. Be careful what you study kids!

FINAL THOUGHTS
This film is not a genius piece of writing but I did enjoy it. It definitely takes one on a thriller journey through the body parts of the morgue and the knife trails of a serial killer. Remember the title though as you predict the ending! Some will be turned off by this film’s quirkiness and frankly, terrible characterization in acting and writing. Still, if you’re a horror buff and like those teen angst characters, you’ll love this give it a try. Oh yes, and then there’s Christopher Lloyd!

My Rating: 6.5 Stars (6.5 / 10)

Hopelessly devoted to movies from way back when I first saw "Pete's Dragon." In 1977, it sealed the deal when I saw "Star Wars." I write about the movies I see, whether I like them or not. Sometimes I like them more than words can express! Thanks for checking out my movie reviews!
