Critic Reviews for The Clovehitch Killer

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (8)

  • Skiles's film doesn't care so much if you think you know how it ends, even if you're right. It's all about twisting the knife in the process of confirming those fears.

  • As good as Plummer and McDermott are here, [writer Christopher D. Ford] ultimately writes himself into a corner that requires actions in the final act that don't ring true.

    November 16, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Unlike so many recent horror movies, The Clovehitch Killer is patient with its thrills, almost excruciatingly so.

    November 16, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • An excellent McDermott embodies Don with just enough strangeness to keep audiences from knowing precisely where The Clovehitch Killer is heading.

    November 15, 2018 | Full Review…
  • McDermott is admirably unsettling, and Luke McCoubrey's artfully sterile cinematography adds an air of suffocating wholesomeness that can make you squirm.

  • First-time feature director Duncan Skiles brings some spooky atmosphere to a smart script by Christopher Ford.

Audience Reviews for The Clovehitch Killer

  • Jan 20, 2019
    You know that Rear Window parody they did in The Simpsons, where they suspect Ned Flanders of being a murderer? Yeah. Basically that. Well acted though. A very cold, methodical film.
