Storyline

A shocking revelation turns a teenage boy's world upside down in this chilling look at the evil that can lurk below even the most wholesome surface. Tyler Burnside is a Boy Scout, a volunteer at his local church, and the dutiful son of an upstanding, community leader dad. Only one thing troubles the quiet Kentucky town he lives in: the unsolved murders-in which ten women were brutally tortured and killed by a psychopath known as Clovehitch-that rocked the community more than a decade ago. When Tyler discovers a cache of disturbing images in his father's possession, he begins to suspect that the man he trusts most in the world may be Clovehitch-and that his deadly rampage may not be over. With unrelenting tension, director Duncan Skiles crafts a picture-perfect vision of the all-American family-and then piece by piece rips it to shreds. Written by Andrew Lauer

The neverending story...
6 April 2019 | by ollywill-08723See all my reviews

At times extremely effective, deeply disturbing & uncomfortable to watch, The Clovehitch Killer is a relatively satisfying & well made film that's worth a watch - but it's also a classic example of a movie that doesn't know when to end - dragging out the resolution until you're willing the credits to start rolling; every scene feels like it's setting up the conclusion until it's followed by yet another & you're left impatiently waiting for the crescendo, which is tedious, frustrating & disappointing. However, the performances sell the entire film & there's palpable tension between characters in emotionally charged scenes so the conflict is incredibly well done & regardless of its faults, it's still a good film - despite being unnecessarily long & drawn out.
