Storyline

On the outside Adam appears to be a normal teenager, but underneath...his mind has been so rotted by trauma from his past and the gory films he watches, that he has blurred the lines between reality and pretend! This prompts Adam to start killing people in similar ways to films he watches, making sure to put his own little spin on it. Written by James Cullen Bressack

great horror movie
8 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have very High standards of what I expect out of horror movies. Anyone can make them gross and bloody. And I've seen that 5 million times. When I think about the best ones It gives me chills just thinking about them. Some (very few) have scared me for months, even keeping me up at night. This movie did a pretty Damn good job scarring me, but doing it right. I enjoyed the gross deaths and how the moan character killed based on his obsession over killers and what can happen. I think that this is good killer movie too. People who like watching killers get their pray and you seeing the build up is good too. I would like to see a part two? Or maybe even a prequel! For sure I recommend it.
