Movie Info

A shocking revelation turns a teenage boy's world upside down in this chilling look at the evil that can lurk below even the most wholesome surface. Tyler Burnside (Charlie Plummer) is a Boy Scout, a volunteer at his local church, and the dutiful son of an upstanding, community leader dad (Dylan McDermott). Only one thing troubles the quiet Kentucky town he lives in: the unsolved murders--in which ten women were brutally tortured and killed by a psychopath known as Clovehitch--that rocked the community more than a decade ago. When Tyler discovers a cache of disturbing images in his father's possession, he begins to suspect that the man he trusts most in the world may be Clovehitch--and that his deadly rampage may not be over. With unrelenting tension, director Duncan Skiles crafts a picture-perfect vision of the all-American family--and then piece by piece rips it to shreds.

    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.
