Meet Ken Boyd: small-town loner and comic-book nerd, making ends meet by pushing a broom around the local ice-cream parlour. Fresh out of the loony bin, where he spent years recovering from the horrific torture he suffered at the hands of the high school basketball jocks, Ken (Corrigan) wants nothing more than to just be left alone.

But when the lovely Stephanie (Davis) comes into Ken s life and he is reunited with his estranged, 11 year old daughter Amy, things finally seem to be looking up. Even his constantly disappointed mother (Black) and the town Sheriff (Bostwick) start to treat him with a little more respect. That is, until those very same jocks that Ken deems responsible for his ruined life start turning up dead...

Directed by Jack Perez (Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus) and executive produced by John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), Some Guy Who Kills People is screaming out to be seen.

funny, bloody, really sweet... a welcome breath of fresh air -BLOODY DISGUSTING

Great, gory, unpredictable fun.  One hell of a funny picture.  --FANGORIA

Reading the blurb and the various reviews I was expecting a bloody, black comedy; which Some Guys Who Kills People is to some extent but in the end it's far more than that.

Kevin, freshly released from a mental institution, works in an ice-cream parlour whose simple life is dominated by his critical boss, overbearing mother and constant run-ins with the now-grown-up school bullies who made his life a misery. His only friend is Irv, colleague from work, who advises Ken to stand up for himself. Of course, once Ken's ex-tormentors begin meeting gruesome endings the Sheriff and his Deputy begin closing in.

Ultimately, it's actually a rather sad film(in the true sense of the word). Ken's life is nothing to write home about though he somehow manages to keep a brave face despite being treated like dirt by family and peers. The relationship between he and his mother, and ex-girlfriend, were the focus of the film in my opinion. Emasculated, it's hard not to feel sympathy for him as he's constantly belittled and undermined.

The blossoming friendship between he and Stephanie is heartwarming and unsurprisingly awkward (given Ken's lack of social finesse); not entirely essential to the script but a nice addition nonetheless. The Sheriff and lackey are both comedy gold with their dead-pan banter as they investigate the grisly trail of dismembered limbs.

In short, a remarkably touching comedy-drama about some simple guy who dreams of revenge and a better life.

Ken Boyd is not long out of a mental hospital, and is working at an ice-cream parlour.

The people that put him in the mental hospital start turning up dead. He finds out he has a daughter while at the same time that these killings are happening in the town.

The local Sheriff is going out with Ken's mother and he starts to suspect that Ken is the killer.

All the evidence is pointing that way, and Ken's estranged daughter catches him in a compromising position. It's not looking good.....

What's striking about this film, is that it almost feels like something Terry Zwigoff could churn out in an afternoon. Its kooky, and a little leftfield, but never complicated, which is why it's endlessly watchable.

But the story is nothing original, man gets released from an asylum, and soon the people who put him there start turning up dead, the foundation for many horror movies during the eighties, except, this has a very humanistic element to it.

The inclusion of the protagonist having a daughter, and the narrative focusing on his relationships and returning to normality, rather than putting its all into the actual killings.

The lead is very endearing, and I could watch Lucy Davies read the phone book, but Bostwick steals the film with a really strange performance that grabs your attention whenever he utters a syllable.

So all in all, it'd not for all tastes, but it's very kitsch, and a lot of fun.

Format: DVD
Karen Black is back as the mother of our slasher killer Kenny Boyd (Kevin Corrigan). Kenny was tormented by a group of men early in the film. After fathering a daughter Amy, now 11 (Ariel Gade) and spending time in the "looney bin" he is back in his home town working at the local ice cream parlor. Revenge is being enacted on those who tormented him, all the while his estranged daughter is attempting to establish a relationship. The town sheriff (Barry Bostwick) investigating the murders is dating Kenny's mom. A British woman named Stephanie (Lucy Davis) has designs on Kenny.

The police officers investigating the case come across as the typical Hollywood dumb cops. The sheriff says things like, " [When I find him I will] tear his skin off and make him wear his own skin."

Karen Black gets in a few good lines:

Karen: "Kenny cooked lasagne once."
Amy: "Was it good?"
Karen: "Yes."
Kenny: "Really?"
Karen: "Don't make me lie twice."

Kenny keeps himself sheltered. His daughter is forcing him out of his comfort zone. The humor is a somewhat subtle. I am tempted to watch it a second time to pick up things I may have missed. If you enjoy quirky slashers, I suggest "Chop."

Parental Guide: F-bombs, no sex, no nudity.

Format: DVD
Ken Boyd (Kevin Corrigan- `The Departed')has the sort of life only a deranged masochist would be jealous of. He lives with his far from doting mother after being released from a mental institution or `looney bin' as he calls it. His best mate has managed to get him a job at an ice cream parlour where the boss takes great pleasure out of making him feel small. He finds it hard to sleep as he is continually haunted by flash backs to the guys that help put him over the edge.

Then he is sent to a private function where one of his prior tormentors is actually celebrating his birthday - Ken has to dress up as ice cream cone, which only adds to the continuing torture.

Then the tormentor turns up dead and enter Sherriff Walt Fuller played by the brilliant Barry Bostwick, he has a career going back to the seventies and played `Brad' in `The Rocky Horror Picture Show', so I will always have a massive soft spot in my heart for him, and needless to say he steals every scene he is in -fan,bloody tastic. He has a trusty sidekick who is more into puns than boring old detective work. We also have a love interest played by Lucy Davis who I also love and she plays it just the right side of English quirky. But just when you think things can't get any more mysterious his eleven year old daughter turns up and sort of gets things moving at a rate of knots. Meanwhile the body count rises. None of the above is a plot spoiler but more a scene setter to entice you to watch this brilliant little film.

Written by Ryan A. Levin who is better known for `Scrubs', this is one of those films that slipped under the radar and really does deserve a lot more attention. It is warm, funny, brilliantly over acted when it needs to be and for splat and gore fans, we even have some of that too, whilst it may not tick all the boxes of cult it does get remarkably close - highly recommended.
