Fifteen-year old John Cleaver is dangerous, and he knows it. He’s obsessed with serial killers, but really doesn’t want to become one. Terrible impulses constantly tempt him, so for his own sake, and the safety of those around, he lives by rigid rules to keep himself “good” and “normal”. However, when a real monster shows up in his town he has to let his dark side out in order to stop it – but without his rules to keep him in check, he might be more dangerous than the monster he’s trying to kill.
"Could A.M.P.A.S. see past the film’s genre roots (horror rarely gets noticed) to award Lloyd, one of Hollywood’s most beloved ageing icons...?" Read the full review here: http://screen-space.squarespace.com/reviews/2016/9/9/i-am-not-a-serial-killer.html
**Knowing everything, but can't do anything about it.** The title sounds like it is a crime-thriller, that's what I was anticipating. But it was very different, especially at each stage when development takes a new facet. Totally unexpected, the character played by Christopher Lloyd. I had some doubt, but my guesses were wrong on the basis of genre. That was the best part of this film with a kind of dark comedy atmosphere. Based on the first book in the trilogy of the same name. An Irish- British psychological-thriller. Kind of like a B movie, but much better production quality. It has been weeks that I saw this film, but only now I'm reviewing it, yet it still feels like I saw it yesterday, despite I've seen dozens of films in between. It's going to be just a cult-film, not cult-classic. Because of being a non-Hollywood film, the concept had worked for me. It's about a teenager in a small town who keep witnesses strange disappearance of people. Knowing what's going on, he could not convince others about it. So he had to deal with it all by himself and how the tale ends come with a little twist. A good film, at least it would be for a few people, particularly those who like small scale suspense-thriller. _5/10_
