Odessa and Kyle James were just your average American boys until the night they went upstairs and killed their parents in cold blood... and smiled.

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

An interesting piece...
9 May 2003 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

This film is not mindless dribble as some would have you beleive, yet I am sure that the same people railed on Rob Zombie's gore fest House of 1000 Corpses. Yes I will admit that the plot is slightly confusing at points, where exactly did the cannibalistic semi-mutated inbred freaks come from and how are there so many of them? Likewise the sex scene is horribly overdrawn, but holds a sort of tension with the family. As for the acting BOB should receive some sort of award for his encounter with the youngest brother. The films utilization of the heavily overplayed mega-maniacal bash-brothers receives some what of a new spin in this campy flick. The father in the film reminded me, strangely, of Bruce Campbell minus all of his good acting qualities. What was left was an over acting under thinking middle aged Vietnam vet with a hell of a chip on his shoulder...heh, just a little strange. However in spite of all of its unattractive qualities Real Killers is strangely engaging, for a hack and slash shoot 'em up, non-stop action, adolescent testasterone pumper. Any fans of vintage hack and slash flicks, or an interest in independent horror films would probably get a kick out of this flick, just don't expect to much
