  • I'd be happier if I'd never laid eyes on it.

    February 21, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Although psychological substance runs slim, Akin renders most mainstream depictions of degenerate minds lighthearted.

    October 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This subject matter is of the heaviest variety, and its central character not one you're supposed to like. But it is a story with immense artistic merit and a new angle of this subgenre with something important to say.

    October 2, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A bleak, depressing attempt to remove all glorification or justification from the serial killer subgenre.

    September 27, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Another in a long line of serial-killer dramas under the impression that it needs to be as ugly as its subject in order to be authentic, ultimately serving as further proof that verisimilitude isn't a virtue in and of itself.

    September 26, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This long slog through the gutter, from the first brutal murder to [Fritz] Honka's grisly yet comedic arrest, is a tough stroll that it's hard to recommend.
