SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE (2011)
Directed by Jack Perez
Some Guy Who Kills People is about Ken Boyd, a lonely man fresh out of the loony bin, who sets out to kill those he deems responsible for his miserable life.
Ok, so I went into this film believing it to be just another fun, trashy slasher. But i was veeery wrong.
(Mind you, I didn´t even watch the trailer-the poster with the icecream was enough to sell it to me, which made me believe its a fun slasher, simple and trashy…)
Before my eyes unfolding was a near perfect combo of psycho-drama -slasher-dark comedy.
I didn`t mind that what I was watching was nothing like what I was expecting to see, rather surprised and happy to stumble upon a little gem unexpectedly once again, as it happens once in a while.
The director is known for quite some trashy stuff, only this time he got a great script and great actors together and managed to make a tight film that is funny, engaging, dark and twisted in places.
I can`t say enough good things about the actors, everybody did a damn good job, there wasn`t a single one to complain about. Kevin Corrigan, Barry Bostwich, Karen Black, Ariel Gade especially.
I haven`t seen a movie in some time-(dunno , let`s say weeks, cuz I`m watching quite a lot of stuff) that left me so satisfied like this one.
I won`t spoil anything. Just pop it into your player or watch it on netflix or wherever, if you wanna see a tense, dark, funny and engaging story all rolled into one-this is your ticket!
The poster artwork and DVD cover are both misleading I think…one hints at a fun slasher, the other one makes the impression of a much darker movie than it ends up being.
