First off let me start by saying I have not read the book 'I Am Not a Serial Killer' is based on, so I can not comment on how faithful the movie is to it. I can only judge this as a film by itself. Secondly, let me say, I think this would have been a much better film without any supernatural element. What did it add? It had a great story already going for it. A story about real issues and real things that can happen in people's lives. And yet all that goes out the window the second you through a supernatural element into the mix.
The acting was great, particularly from the star Max Records. He gives a very mature and captivating performance that carries the film in a lot of areas. Christopher Lloyd also impressed me. He still completely commits himself to every role he takes on and his screen presence is a wonderful thing in any film he's in.
Had they kept the story grounded and realistic I think I could have found myself really enjoying this. America has a tremendous amount of active (and human) serial killers, so having one in this small town wouldn't have been pushing belief much at all. Nor would it have effected the story much, barring a few easy tweaks. If it added something positive for other people people that's great, but to me it was a waste of an opportunity to turn in a fine film.
