The premise of Killer Therapy is quite simple… It’s We Need to Talk About Kevin minus the magic. I wrote that line, about 20 minutes into the film, and it is broadly true but, having got an hour in, it seems churlish and unfair.

It is really disappointing to say that, because right up to the end of the film, this was going to be an extremely positive review.
