A serial killer hiding in a town of village idiots ..............
12 August 2010 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

"The Barber" is an entertaining film about a serial killer hiding out in small town Alaska. The fact that almost everyone there can barely write their own name makes them easy prey for Malcolm McDowell, the town barber. Some good character development, and sharp humor help immensely. The bleak Alaskan winter provides an appropriately dreary backdrop for the strangling of several females. Friction develops between the local sheriff and an FBI agent sent to investigate. Most of the story is told from the killers viewpoint, and the ending is both unexpected and out of the ordinary. I liked it and recommend "The Barber" - MERK
