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

My Pure Joy... (seriously)
18 November 2013 | by critzer13See all my reviews

I'm not gonna sugar-coat this for ya'll

I LOVE this flick!

James Bressack knocked it out of the park with this film. I'm not giving ANY spoilers.

Don't listen to the negative reviews, this is a true indie classic!

Filled with blood, nudity, and Well, PURE JOY!

Do yourself a solid and scoop this as well as his other flicks (To Jennifer, Hate Crime, 13/ 13/13, etc) GREAT TIMES ARE WAITING!

Seriously!

(Man! Now I gotta watch it again lol)
