Storyline

Aaron Schwartz has one big dream...to become famous - REALLY famous so he's figured out the surefire way to achieve his dream, becoming an infamous serial killer. The one big problem is: he can't kill a fly. After years of failed attempts, Aaron surrenders into a comfortable marriage and the obligatory doll drum job, steadily losing hope for his lifelong aspiration. But with news of a real serial killer on the loose in his hometown, Aaron sees a unique opportunity and his final chance to make his childhood dream into a reality. Perhaps he can use his obsessive knowledge of serial killers to track down the local murderer and learn from the best. Then again, maybe some dreams just aren't meant to be achieved.

"21st Century Serial Killer"
26 May 2015 | by ASouthernHorrorFanSee all my reviews

"21st Century Killer" is a very strange, twisted tale that isn't completely Americana psychotica but the attitude and possibly inappropriate nature of this little indie film is completely Americanized satire. The film starts a bit more like some black comedy melodrama with more in common with films like "Pecker" and "Dollhouse". It has an atmosphere that is totally quirky but completely entertaining. I mean come on- a movie about a guy who has dreamed since childhood of becoming a serial killer! That is good stuff there! The actors are great on camera and as the story begins to pick up, and the mental state of these bizarre creatures start to unfold, the real fun, completely black satire kicks in. It makes the picture one really punk-rock, offbeat joyride. Plus Joy Von Appen is hilarious against Patrick O'Driscoll character.

"21st Century Serial Killer" is a cool film with some very funny moments. The social commentary, of our odd celebration of killers as icons, is weaved well within the plot in a devilishly delicious way- that isn't preachy or uppity. There is gore and blood in the film, but it isn't the focus, which keeps the film a little lighter than it could have been-it isn't "American Psycho" but then again it isn't trying to be. Some effects moments are notably on the cheap side but the film is so much fun to watch that I wasn't really put off by it. Over all "21st Century Serial Killer" is a great little dark indie flick that I enjoyed.
