What would happen if someone like Ed Gein or Ted Bundy were to have children and raise them to follow in their bloody footsteps? KateBird Wilkens, brought to life with unnerving depth and believability by horror veteran Helene (My Bloody Valentine) Udy explores this very question in a chilling and graphic testimony of family tradition, emotional confusion and complete insanity.

I usually complain about the pathetic state of the contemporary horror movies.But,there is a positive effect in there:the economic success of craps like Hide and Seek,White Noise and The Messengers allows the blossoming of a rich harvest of independent cinema maintained by distributors who always are in search of the following semi-success of ticket office, or of the following film director who will rescue the genre.It's difficult to find excellent independent horror films,so a big research for that movies must be done.Katie Bird *Certifiable Crazy Person is one of that brilliant films which is much better than commercial horror craps and also better than the 95% of independent films made for DVD.The story may sound simple but I have to say that it's complex on its tone and message.Thanks to Seven and The Silence of the Lambs,the serial killer became on a typical cliché in Hollywood,so the genre lost a lot of credibility with pathetic movies like Twisted,The Bone Collector and Taking Lives.So,it's a pleasure for me to say that Katie Bird *Certifiable Crazy Person takes an original new focus on the serial killer subject.The actors are unknown but they bring extraordinary performances.The movie uses the split-screen method but that's not a forced trick.That effect helps to show us the sick mind of the main character.Katie Bird is not a movie for everyone(it can easily disturb sensitive people) but it's a fascinating experiment that I recommend,not only to the aficionados of horror movies,but also to the aficionados of the good cinema.Katie Bird is a spectacular film that is sadly occult in the shadows.But I recommend you to look for it,unless you are a sensible person.
