Kurt Baker - Age 8


Pat Baker is a small town sheriff. His son, Kurt, is a deranged young man with a dark secret. Sheriff Baker's worst nightmare comes true when Kurt escapes from a psychiatric hospital where he was locked away for the brutal murder of his mother thirteen years earlier. Gary, a hospital security guard, sets out into the woods to stop him, but soon finds himself relentlessly hunted by the deranged psychopath intent on killing him and anyone who crosses his path. Sheriff Baker launches an intense search to find his son, only to discover that his daughter, Sara, and her friends are camping in the same woods where Kurt has escaped. Kurt's psychosis escalates, as does his vengeful killing spree, culminating in a terrifying, climactic confrontation with Kurt, the sheriff and his family. Written by Lock It In Entertainment

Fresh film, definitely worth watching!
17 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thank god for a film that doesn't treat the audience like they're idiots, and really went the extra mile to make it interesting. AWESOME PLOT. How often can you say that about horror flicks?

I decided to watch this movie with some friends this weekend on Netflix instantly and I have to say, we were so impressed. We're all big horror film buffs and we honestly got this not thinking we'd have to pay attention and possibly make fun of some bad acting. Completely wrong.

We were all dead silent and really getting into the plot - by the time it ended, we talked about it forever. I would recommend this to any horror film buff who is searching for something fresh and interesting. The acting is decent, of course you have the pretty average characters involved and some of the normal scenes you'd expect from any horror film.

The twists, turns, surprises, flashbacks, and especially the acting done by a few of the actors is above average, way above average. Seriously impressed. It's always nice to see something new and ACTUALLY be surprised. This movie makes you think and really go over the ending to understand again and again. I would tell anyone to watch this movie, SERIOUSLY a fan.
