Storyline

The James boys, two of America's most media-oriented killers, Odessa and Kyle have escaped from San Quentin's Death Row. In the midst of a fierce storm and pursued by law-enforcement officers, they find sanctuary by bursting in on and taking hostage the ideal American family, or so they think. After they discover that the daughters are two of their biggest fans, the mother isn't quite what she seems, and the father is perhaps more than their equal, the killers realize the cops are the least of their worries. And as the rain pours down and the dragnet moves closer, the question that emerges is, "Will the killers ever see the light of day?" Written by Ryan

The absolute Cult Movie
1 February 2003 | by (Frankfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

In my opinion Mike Mendez' Killers is one of the greatest Films ever made. It might be low Budget and sometimes disturbingly freaky, but exactly that's what makes it the absolute Cult Movie for me. The Camera shots, the Music, the Actors, the Dialogues (Monologues) are totally awesome and make a weaving Atmosphere (i don't know if you say so, i just mean that it f***ing kicks a**). It's a must see for Fans of Crime and Suspense. It will jump on you, Baby, and it will stay in your Clothes!
