An experimental piece from the heart
4 January 2018 | by TuesdayThe17thSee all my reviews

This is Mickey Keating's fifth or sixth film that he both wrote and directed. Its nice to see a director writing and directing all of his movies. It allows for a full vision into the directors mind. Mickey Keating has had a kind of amateur style in his past films, with "Darling" being his highest rated film at 5.5 which to me,is a shock because I didn't think Darling was anything special. The black and white was clearly only used because of a minimal budget and the editing is pretty bland. Keating uses that split screen technique which he led into Psychopaths as well. I went into Psychopaths excited. I seemed it out the day it came out on DVD. Although Keating's directing has been amateurish, he is still a big influence of mine as I am,working on my first feature film myself. Just looking for some people to stand behind it. Keating is a true horror fan. His shudder series is great and its cool how he shot himself up the ladder through deep passion for the genre. Psychopaths surprised me. Its his best looking film yet. That amateur directing style is gone. Besides a few minor editing blunders, It seems like he finally is really getting the hang of this. Psychopaths didnt have a legit story with a climax. It was more of like a montage of murder, or an anthology film about a bunch of different serial killers. A really cool aspect is that its a true indie horror. I LOVE Larry Fessenden. He is one of my top idols. Keating has an all star indie horror cast. Ashley Bell, James Landry Hebert, Josh Ethier, Graham Skipper, Joe Begos, Jeremy Gardener, Helen Rogers, Matt Mercer, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Padraig Reynolds, PLUS it has Angela Trimbur AND Larry Fessenden!! Mark Kassen gave a very good performance in this movie too. Very heartfelt and true. So did Gardener. Most of these people are directors and trekked a very similar path I am currently trekking. This film is truly kind of brilliant. Its refreshing and violent and dark and like a neon noir at the same time. Its a movie about the killers. Imexcited for Mickey and am excited to see what's next for him. You can tell he is happy with what he is doing.
