Movie Info

At first glance, Ken Boyd may seem like an average comic enthusiast, living with his mother and working to make ends meet as an underpaid, underappreciated ice cream parlor attendant. But Ken has a dirty little secret: he fantasizes about killing people. After being released from a stay in the loony bin for severe mental trauma suffered when he was beaten and tortured by a gang of high school thugs, Ken's repressed anger suddenly reaches a boiling point. He begins to hunt down his tormentors, one by one, and exacts his bloody revenge - all the while forming an unconventional bond with his estranged 11-year old daughter.

  • It has a good cast, some funny lines and a tone that's more original than most.

  • In the sober light of day, the flaws here seem to glare and screech; under the right conditions, this is cheery genre fun.

  • Cutesy & slight, but also at times very funny, Some Guy Who Kills People sees its director advancing in leaps & bounds from his previous feature Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, while scaling monstrous mayhem and murder back down to a very human level.

  • Antagonists are entertainingly offed, but the violence is all too cartoonish to ever feel relevant. Furthermore, dramatic moments are often clumsily handled.

  • An amiable little indie flick with some memorable cameos and a few splatters of graphic gore thrown in for good measure.

  • It's a slasher you can take your mum to.

Audience Reviews for Some Guy Who Kills People

    Fairly entertained by Kevin Corrigan's performance in this small indie movie. I've always enjoyed his acting in TV or small movie rolls, but finally a chance to see his dark humor blossom. Barry Bostwick as the small town sheriff really heightens the comedic value as well. Ariel Gade's performance is pretty decent as well as the daughter. The plot doesn't stray too far from your typical suspense or killer movie, but there's a twist of comedy added in. They don't jump too deep into characterization outside of Corrigan, but you'll still laugh you're way to a "twist" ending that won't surprise too many people if you've been paying attention.

    Not quite as quirky and funny as I had hoped. Not really horror either, more like a drama with a bit of gore.

    It starts out as a very funny dark comedy with buckets of gore and surprisingly still delivers a nice character study, very well acted, giving room for every actor to shine. That town sheriff is hilarious and the lead portrays really well with small nuances this troubled character. It's a shame that once the novelty is gone, the movie doesn't offer much else. It's still fun while it goes but predictable and a tad too slow. And obviously, there's a twist by the end, which is a shame. Most modern horror/thrillers to stand out lately, usually offer a fantastic blend of genres to be original, finding balance between them. Some Guy Who Kills People has excellent writting, great humour and interesting characters but needs a spark to make it truly shine. A bit of a missed opportunity but worth a shot.
