I Am Not A Serial Killer


SYNOPSIS

John Wayne Cleaver is 16. Puber en sociopaat in de dop. Geobsedeerd door serial killers. Af en toe helpt hij in het mortuarium van zijn moeder en tante en om zijn bizarre trekjes in bedwang te houden, legt hij zichzelf strikte leefregels op. John lijkt dus wel normaal, maar is het allesbehalve. En wanneer zijn kleine dorpje in de Midwest ten prooi valt aan een seriemoordenaar, schakelt hij zijn unieke skills en wereldvisie in om het mysterie te ontrafelen. Terwijl de ijzige winter neerdaalt over Clayton, knoopt hij een unieke band aan met "zijn" verdachte...

I Am Not a Serial Killer werd door gerespecteerde media als Variety en de LA Times de hemel ingeprezen als een unieke, traag smeulende thriller en een horror-dramedy met paranormale elementen, een snuifje Dexter en fantastische vertolkingen van o.m. Max Records (Where the Wild Things Are), Christopher Lloyd (Ghostbusters, Back to the Future) en Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad, The Missing).


REVIEWS

  • Lees hier een uitgebreid interview met regisseur Billy O'Brien.
  • Kermode en Mayo vinden het een klapper, zie http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04kvhcv
  • Empire: Breathing new life into the overfamiliar terrain of the serial killer, Irish director Billy O'Brien here both successfully reintroduces Max Records to the world, and elicits Christopher Lloyd's best performance in a long time. His film deserves cult classic status at the very least.
  • Sight & Sound: a truly superior genre offering from a filmmaker of genuine class and ambition. Lees de raving review hier.
  • Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival: I Am Not A Serial Killer is gebaseerd op het gelijknamige boek van Dan Wells uit 2009 dat meteen een hit werd in de VS. De film gaat niet uit van standaard horror en zogenaamde 'jump scares' maar is een mooie cross-over geworden; een intelligent thriller/drama dat geregeld flirt met bovennatuurlijke en sci-fi elementen.
  • Variety.com: Max Records gives a sharp performance in this endearing first adaptation of Dan Wells' YA series. The tale of a likable teenager, raised by a mortician family, whose own nascent sociopathic tendencies make him a perfect amateur sleuth when a serial killer strikes his folksy Midwestern town, director Billy O'Brien's film adaptation strikes a tone that's far more unique and endearing than that premise might imply, helped in no small part by a sharp-witted performance from former child star Max Records.
  • NYTimes.com: Mr. Records (the child actor in "Where the Wild Things Are") is nimble and unsentimental in playing a character who is playing at normal, supported by a solid cast in a well-filmed indie that doesn't let its low budget get in the way of some true chills.
  • Bloody-disgusting.com: A Moody and Creative Thriller!
  • Screenanarchy.com: I Am Not a Serial Killer morphs comfortably from teen fiction to a murder mystery to a cagey thriller, all with a wry sense of humor. It's modest and fully engaging, and smart enough not to overplay its hand.
  • Thefilmstage.com: dark and dangerous, suspenseful and unique.
  • AVClub.com: Psychopaths are people too in the nuanced I Am Not A Serial Killer! What sets Billy O'Brien's sharply observed indie horror-drama apart from other takes on this "killers hunting killers" concept (Dexter, anyone?) is its naturalistic, character-based approach.
  • Undertheradarmag.com: I Am Not a Serial Killer shines in its exploration of what it is like to live with inclinations you wish you didn't have but find it increasingly hard to fight.
  • LATimes.com: The surprisingly warm and fuzzy horror-dramedy wonders "can serial killers love?"
  • Efilmcritic.com: Underneath it all, though, is the idea that being human and being a monster are fundamentally connected, and that the struggle is what makes people interesting and worth examining. That may not be an uncommon thought, but O'Brien and company handle it with unusual skill for a thriller aimed at young people, to the extent that giving someone like Lloyd what may be one of his best parts is something of a bonus.
  • Influxmagazine.com: Am Not a Serial Killer is a very slow and deliberately paced film. I am telling you this up front so that you know that it's well worth sticking with this one...please resist your urge to try something else because of this! The payoff is well worth it and the film is well made and I honestly can say I've never seen anything like it in my life!
  • Wegotthiscovered.com: At its best, this is a film that keeps tension tight and anticipation on edge. Maybe John's a serial killer, maybe he isn't – each decision pushes Records' performance closer to the brink, and we never doubt his capabilities. You think you know, but you don't. Or you might? That's the beauty of it all, never providing answers until the final, shocking turn.
  • Culturecrypt.com: Max Records somehow makes magnetism out of teen angst. And though it may be clichéd to say, this is co-star Christopher Lloyd like you've never seen him before. Lloyd flips an expectation of his often-comedic presence on its ear by managing to make the warmth of an elderly neighbor sinisterly chilling. Ice the cake with a terrific monster design from Toby Froud and "I Am Not a Serial Killer" combines dark family drama, creature feature, and serial killer thriller into one uniquely entertaining package.
