A $9,500 Masterpiece
7 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thats right, This film was made on a budget of 9,500 dollars. Shot on super 8mm film only adds to the realistic, gritty atmosphere shot in the Carolina backwoods. I originally saw this movie on late night cable television (Showtime I believe) and was highly impressed. Money ran tight and several locals were employed and a local actress was asked if she would still do a topless scene for half the pay she said she'd only show one breast instead of two. The special effects are crude but effective. Its style and atmosphere is somewhat similar to Last house on the Left (another classic)but it isn't as complex. The subsequent Elwood film Road Kill was a major disappointment. Someone on here said they liked it better than Killer and I bought it on ebay, that was a mistake. If you like simple, gritty, spooky horror movies with some black humor, excessive violence and a decent soundtrack check this out. If your into the new, commercial, high budget stuff you may not like this film. I surely liked it and give it the highest rating.
