Waste of time
6 July 2012 | by billcr12See all my reviews

Casey Noland is a clueless high school kid who is bored with life and decides that he wants to be a serial killer. He just can't bring himself to actually kill anyone. He meets the nerdy Sasha Fitzgerald(Lisa Loeb, the singer), and she wishes to commit suicide and asks him to assist her in the act.

Noland has the ambition to be a famous, Ted Bundy like murderer but when someone else steals the spotlight, he gets jealous. Thomas Haden Church plays Vince Grimaldi, the rival for media attention. Church is fine, as always, but the film is neither funny or scary and I was bored to death, excuse the pun, by the time Serial Killers for is over, you will feel like a dummy for wasting 89 minutes watching this garbage.
