- Not your usual slasher film 9/16/2020 12:00:00 AM by hampersnow-28905
This movie needs to be given credit for not going the usual route when it comes to slasher/psycho-killer films. It starts by allowing us to get to the know the killer during his formative years then takes us on a journey as he seems to meet one awful character after another. The movie in no way follows the path of most slasher films, but it also has a disjointed feel. While we get to know the lead, everyone else is pretty much one-dimensional. You can have pity for some of the victims in this , but I guarantee this movie does such a good job of making you feel sympathy for the killer that you'll be rooting for him. Michael Qeliqi is excellent (and very handsome) as the older Brian and Jonathan Tysor is great playing the younger Brian but they must have been hired on their acting abilities alone because they look nothing alike. The movie does not flow well, and some characters had me wondering if I was suppose to like them or hate them. In all, it could have been better written but I was surprised at how deeply it went into the mind of a psycho in the making. Worth a one time watch .

production do have some issues, and a very stakkato rythm, from being acdc'ed and thunderstruck by loud sound, and scared hyper due to nervegrinding kind of score, and given TIA's from the flashing lights, youll be dead meat in the end.
acting are good, especially in the child years of the story, though the casting crew has done a decent choice of actors.so to end a psycheledic story, its a recommend from the grumpy old man
