Product Description

Forget everything you've ever seen in a serial killer movie and get ready for the chiller that stunned festival audiences around the world: notorious murderer Garrick Turrell (AJ Bowen of House Of The Devil and Hatchet II) has escaped from police custody and resumed his killing spree. His former girlfriend Sarah (Amy Seimetz of Alexander The Last) is a recovering alcoholic trying to put her life back together in a new town with a new man (Joe Swanberg of Nights And Weekends). Her past continues to haunt her. And now her ex-boyfriend is leaving a trail of slaughter in his hunt to find her. From Adam Wingard, the director of the award-winning film Pop Skull and screenwriter Simon Barrett (Dead Birds) comes the movie experience that is emotionally raw, disturbingly graphic and brutally real. Prepare yourself for A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE.

3.0 out of 5 stars AND THE WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE 6 July 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
The movie opens with a murder during the cold of fall. A man wakes up from dozing off in his car. He gets out and opens the trunk and removes a bound and gagged woman. He apologizes for having nodded off, assures her everything is going to be alright and then kills her. Note when he gets out of the car, the door does not chime, i.e. keys are out of the ignition, but then when he gets back in it chimes, i.e. keys are somehow in the ignition. I hate it when a movie does this. Is this by design a clue or stupidity on the director's part?

We switch to a dowdy looking blond (Amy Seimetz as Sarah) is at an AA meeting. She is 3 months sober. Some guy hits on her and they go out, and we discover that alcoholics are socially inept.

Meanwhile the subplot continues with a prisoner looking like Zach Garifalakis (AJ Bowen as Garrick Turrell ) is being transferred in a police car under guard and carefully watched. Garrick espies a small screw rolling around on the floorboard...

Sarah is a nurse, who happens to be Garret's ex-girlfriend in hiding. Got the plot figured out yet?

But things aren't that simple.

The mystery of the movie is what twist is this thing setting us up for? There are clues along the way as things don't fit. The car door chime wasn't one of them, that was just poor editing.

Clever? yes. Entertaining? Not really that powerful. The movie didn't feel like a slasher film. It felt more like a mystery or drama. The stabbings, wounds, and blood appeared realistic enough, which means bright red liquid doesn't squirt 3 feet into the air.

I think they could have done better on the title.

F-bomb, near sex scene, brief nudity.

1.0 out of 5 stars pathetic 25 Mar 2012
this film is an abomination to say the least! shoddy cheap rubbish camera work, wooden acting that would give the garden fence nightmares and as for the ''strong bloody violence'' logo on the cover.....forget it....none to be seen! what a waste of money this was, money that i could have spent on a chalkboard to scrape my nails down!

1.0 out of 5 stars RUBBISH 7 April 2012
This must be the worst film I have seen for a long time, looks like the camera was operated by my 90 year old granny, it was all over the place and made me feel sick at some points. take my tip and save your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please Don't Ever Rent Or Buy This Film 22 Mar 2012
Banal, immature and more disposable than a box of bics, this pathetic effort is beyond a joke. The camerawork has to be seen to be disbelieved and the useless semi-improvised dialogue wouldn't even make it into your average school play. I've seen 1970s office health and safety training videos that were better directed. Trust me, this isn't one of those films that's bad in a trashy and entertaining way. No folks, it's bad in a very very very bad kind of way.
