Storyline

A cunning psychopath with more than an axe to grind murders the kindly Mailman in a small, placid suburban town. Darius Foxx scarred for life as a young boy by seeing his parents brutally murdered, comes back to town as the new Mailman to torment his younger brother, Daniel, and Daniel's adopted family. Daniel, a bored loner who is upset when he finds his lovely sister, Beth, has fallen for his best friend, Jay, learns of his adoption and past from the new Mailman. Upset by the news, he joins the Mailman in a string of cons and sadistic crimes before he realizes just what kind of psychopath he is dealing with, and by then it is almost too late. Can these three teenagers stop The Mailman before he kills again? Written by Todd Wade

enjoyable in a inept brain-dead sort of way
20 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the fall of 1986, Darius Foxx (Rob Arbogast) witnesses his mailman father kill his mother and her lover before shooting himself. Now as a budding psychopath, he takes over the old mailman's route to be closer to his brother, who's since been adopted. He plans to recruit the kid in on his games of opening other people's mail, practical jokes, & killing. His brother, finding out about his best friend dating his sister behind his back is eager to cut loose from his adoptive family.

This movie doesn't really make sense, the actions made by any of the character's in the film make less. Be it the sister who's eager to believe anything,the killer who lacks any true motivation, or the corrupt mayor who's plot line goes nowhere fast. However, that being said, it's still entertaining in a horribly idiotic, inept B-movie kind of way. I wasn't bored so I guess that has to count for something. But I make the bones about it, the films still horrid.

Eye Candy: Diana Kauffman, Danielle Petty & two extras get topless; meanwhile Ari Tinnen takes both a shower and a bath, but no real nudity (worst c-teases of recent memory)

My Grade: D
