Methodic tells the story of a boy who becomes demonically possessed by an ominous presence known as "The Dollman". Forced to obey his dark half, the boy ultimately murders his parents on his birthday and is sentenced to a life under a microscope at the state mental hospital. But evil cannot be contained so easily. Instead, "The Dollman" simply bides his time, dwelling within the boy- waiting for the day when he will become powerful enough to completely take over his human host. And when that day comes, god help us all. Written by Chris Notarile

Did You Know?


For her fall in the climax of the film, Niki Rubin refused to have a stunt double. She rehearsed the fall twice then did two takes of it. See more »


Colin McDermott: ...so after I managed to somehow soak up all of the fucking water in the kitchen and in the empty space under the sink I put three or four fans in the dining room to try and dry up the carpet and air the place out. It smelled like Goddamn sewage which I kept thinking was probably loaded with all of the shit that my neighbors had to flush down the toilet every time someone called the cops on them for playing their music too loud at 2 AM every fucking Thursday morning. So anyway what, I dunno... ...

I Want More Methodic!!!
29 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

I was invited to see a private screening of Methodic the other day and WOW, what a cool idea for a movie. I've read what everyone else has posted and I think they're pretty spot on with how the movie was. It's no joke that it starts out as a slow place, but it totally pays off in the end. Chris Notarile and Brandon Slagle wrote the script which was based on a remake script Chris had made for Halloween. And when you watch the film, at first you're thinking to yourself "okay, where is he going with this?" Then about half way in, you think you might have figured it out and are calling how it will end. Yeah, that's when the film takes a crazy left turn and totally throws you off track. What starts out like a Halloween movie completely becomes something entirely different, and it works. The 3rd act is what makes this movie so fun and original. The Dollman is more than meets the eye as is the story. And it really makes you think. So yes, watch this movie. Its worth it.
