This movies boogie man left me asking the same question I ask immediately in real life serial killer situations; Why? With the mysterious killer who seems to pick off his victims with a realistic, yet still noticeable, power. No honky-tonk gimmicks. No bumps in the night and sharp music up-ticks meant for cheap scares and forgettable moments. No, this movie begs you to think. It wants you to question it, and it wants you to question your own little pocket of the world.
What if you were just shopping in front of the person who at some point is going to slaughter you? Killing isn't like a horror movie. The big bag monster isn't going to take a second-long cue before slicing your head clean off. He might just use the kitchen knife you were planning to use making dinner later that day. What if that person held a door open for you, but never took their eyes off of you? Questions, and some meant to stick in your mind. Not many horror movies can do that to you anymore, but one great indie-flick can.
The shots were performed with purpose and little filler. Far from feeling like a security camera, but constantly allowing you to stop thinking in a movie mind-set, you always feel like you're watching real people. Not all line deliveries are perfect, but so in life neither are ours. The most dangerous thing this movie did was to make the characters almost immediately relate-able. I saw more of my natural cadence and pandering with my significant other in one couple than I was comfortable with, so the movie became that much more disturbing. With no unnecessary score in the background, you feel more in tune with the movie because very little snaps you out of the trance it puts you in. A definite watch for popcorn lovers.
From a small town, made in a small town, built for normal people wanting to be surprised and possibly disturbed! This movie catches an easy 9/10, the 1 point loss only being nitpicking gripes. Judged knowing $50 million wasn't dropped on it. And loving it for what it is, this should be a definite buy for your Halloween season.
