Don't let the title put you off. This offbeat horror movie based on the cult YA novel by Dan Wells is as much a subtle psychological drama as it is a gory chiller.

Co-writer and director Billy O'Brien does a masterful job of building up the creep factor but gets too ambitious in the second half of the story.

It's true that there may be moments in which the evolution of the story gets stuck but Christopher Lloyd's surprising work and the great chemistry established between him and O'Brien makes it worth watching it. [Full review in Spanish]

I Am Not a Serial Killer is Dostoevsky in Minnesota. Spiritually if not literally.

[Sinks] its storytelling teeth deep enough to draw blood, while still retaining the flesh-wound frivolity of cackling morbid fun.

A sour, wicked film that neither looks nor feels like the rest of the busy sub-genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 8, 2016
Originality is hard to come by, especially in horror films, but there's a good dose of it in this stylish and beguiling little chiller based on the first book in Dan Wells's YA book series.

I Am Not A Serial Killer may have some gloopy, gory moments but rather than the full-on chiller you might expect, it is slow and brooding, gothic and decidedly odd.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 8, 2016
A pleasingly macabre study of a mixed-up teen who could be a Dexter-in-waiting.

Christopher Lloyd delivers his creepiest performance since Roger Rabbit's Judge Doom in this intriguingly off-beat indie thriller.

An alternative, subversive thriller steeped in cinematic tradition.

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.

There's a touch of 'Stranger Things' about this lo-fi indie horror.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 5, 2016
The strong screenplay demonstrates such an intuitive understanding of human emotion and despair that it elevates this genre gem into something strangely tender.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 5, 2016
Intelligent, original and committed, it's also a little meandering. But Records cuts a strikingly amoral figure, and the sight of Christopher Lloyd intoning poetry over dying embers reminds us what a wonderful actor he is.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 4, 2016
Appropriately unnerving yet searching, dark yet cheerful.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
