Billy O’Brien’s quirky supernatural thriller finds sociopath protagonist John Wayne Cleaver trying to solve a string of murders committed in his small town while dealing with his own belief that he is fated to become a serial killer.
Based on the 2009 novel of the same name written by Dan Wells. I am not a serial Killer moves at a slow pace which allows some of the darkly comedic writing to shine, while still letting the tension build. Solid performances by Max Records as John Cleaver and Christopher Lloyd as his elderly neighbor Crowley make the movie really shine.
This is heavily recommended if you are looking for a nice slow burn that keeps it lighthearted enough to completely blindside you with good old-fashioned violence.
