Critic Reviews for The Killer Inside Me
This again-atypical film from Winterbottom, the genre-swapping director of A Mighty Heart, Genova and The Road to Guantanamo, is a much more sober affair than its early, controversial press might suggest.
Not even the offices of the excellent Burt Kennedy can save this hopelessly stodgy and psychologising story.
Anti-ingenue Susan Tyrell's performance as the feckless hooker who inadvertently unleashes a hellhound on a small mining town is so rawly effective it's painful to watch.
The just-average script and some weak supporting roles, however, ultimately limit the film.
Audience Reviews for The Killer Inside Me
Bizarre, disjointed thriller worth watching only for Keach's performance. It doesn't really get interesting until the end and by then you don't care.
