Storyline

In a big American city, the serial killer The Picasso Killer is terrorizing the dwellers and the police department does not have lead to find him. The bartender Christie Wallace dreams on moving to the countryside with her six year-old daughter Zoe to have a peaceful life far from the violence of the city. Late night of Christmas Eve, Christie leaves the Tides Bar where she works and walks back home. In an alley, she sees a woman dying covered on blood and The Picasso Killer sees Christie and chases her. She runs to a commercial building where the night watchman Wade is reluctant to open the door and does not give credit to Christie. She calls the police and Detectives Stefan Kerchek and Lawrence Kellog attend the call. When Christie tells that she can recognize the infamous serial-killer, there is a blackout, the phones are dead and the detectives cannot call the precinct. They lock the building waiting for reinforcement but sooner they find that The Picasso Killer has broken in the ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Has Its Moments, But Mostly a Stinker
1 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A metropolitan city is in the grip of fear when rolling blackouts bring out a serial killer dubbed The Picasso Killer (Udo Kier).

The only thing that makes this film worth watching is Udo Kier, who is always a treat for horror fans. Besides that, you might enjoy the sex scene or a quick shower scene, but the story itself is completely lame.

At no point does the film explain why he is called the Picasso Killer. Now, you might say, "Well, duh, look at the artwork he creates." But we as the audience know that he is an artist. Do the police know that? If so, it is never established. He carves up his victims, but that hardly makes him unique.

Although this film was made in 2007, it did not receive a DVD release until June 2011. The reason, most likely, is because it is a bit of a stinker. They were lucky to get Image to pick it up. It is nice to see David Carradine again (since he has been dead a few years) but this role is one of his absolute worst. A deaf, forgetful old man? Really? What a waste of an iconic screen legend.

Why does it take place on Christmas Eve? This never ties in the story and I do not even recall seeing so much as a snowflake. Making this a Christmas movie makes even less sense than making "Die Hard" a Christmas movie. And why is it called "Fall Down Dead"? Did anyone fall down dead? No.

Check this out if you need a fix of Udo Kier, otherwise just run for the hills if someone tries to slip this in your DVD player.
