American Maniacs and Staring at Monsters: A Movie Review

5 January 2012 7:30 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: a screener of this film was provided by director C. M. Downs.

**here be major spoilers.

Director: C. M. Downs.

Writer: Trent Haaga.

Cast: Aaron Champion, Amanda Culbertson, Ashlynn Yennie, Jason Curtis Miller, and John Redmond.

American Maniacs was previously titled Fetch and this film has had a recent release through Phase 4 Films on Video-on-demand (Comcast, Insight). This title was completed in 2010 and this is C. M. Downs first feature as director. From a script by Trent Haaga (Killjoy 3), American Maniacs blends all kinds of messed up characters together in what is essentially a heist or robbery thriller. However, the people eating dogs add in much horror while all the double-dealing creates some drama. Overall, this is "a dark film" as described by director C. M. Downs and this means that there is no light at the end of this dark cinematic tunnel.
