Storyline

The only child of divorced middle-class parents Jared Dwyer has it all - a gifted mind, athletic prowess, a beautiful girlfriend called Shelby, and a brilliant future - until he and Shelby climb into a car driven by Shelby's drunken, drug-addled brother, Preston. The crash was inevitable. The brain trauma Jared sustained meant that life would never be the same again - that he would never be the same again. Six months later, Jared's body has healed but his dreams, aspirations and plans for the future are gone. His old life isn't even a memory. His only constant in this tragic new reality is his beloved girlfriend, Shelby. Working part-time at the local DVD store, Jared finds solace in alcohol and B-grade movies - until one night, glued to a B-grade classic, the images on his TV screen flicker, distort.

My Review Of "Killervision"
11 August 2014 | by ASouthernHorrorFanSee all my reviews

Dale Trott's "Killervision" follows the tragedy and disturbing recovery of a young man's life after a car accident changes everything. Leaving him brainwashed, Jared's injuries leave him somewhat disabled and deeply affected by survivor's guilt. The outcome of this very modern nightmare has a brutal and fatal resolution for Jared and everyone connected to him.

"Killervison" is a strong, creative story that pulls you into the casual, yet effective, drama. The characters are well developed and relatable. The story arch flows smoothly with very little flaw. Trott creates a dark, mature situation that is both emotional and chilling. I found the dialog to be strong, often the intensity of the scenes are histrionic and captivating. The actors do a good job of bringing believable characters to the screen with a natural tactility.

The special effects used in "Killervision" stay with a limited practical concept. A lot of the brutality is off camera, giving quick flashes of the killing sequence. Most of the deaths are tastefully done without gore, some kill sequences give the blood and gore, but for the most part "Killervision" takes a stripped down, minimalist approach to the horror elements. The cool aspects of effect comes from the visual gimmicks used. The cinematography and vision is surreal, with a blend of experimental art-house style. There is a haunting, destitution that lingers in the atmospheric effect in "Killervision" that is brought to life with chilling instrumental effects. Classic sounds, and music carry an ominous tone that is hypnotic.

Overall "Killervision" manages to create a plausible, twisted story that embraces the classic elements of horror while maintaining an original, modern concept. The film is entertaining and heartfelt, thanks to committed actors who make these characters believable. Trott's story is a strong, thought out nightmare that is disturbing and entertaining. There is some moments that fall a little flat and don't create the thrilling effect that the scene shoots for, but the momentum that builds steadily through "Killervision" is constant. I found this film entertaining, smart, and mature. The story is original, creative and comes with a twist that you only recognize as a possibility during the last act. "Killervision" is a cool, indie thriller worth watching.
