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

Trivia

The plot appears to have been heavily inspired by Dennis Rader, an infamous serial known as the "BTK killer". Like the character in the film Rader was a Boy Scout leader, and known as a devout leader of his church. He had a seemingly normal family life all while terrorizing a community for over a decade. Much like the character in the film Rader had a hobby of creating pornographic collages which his son accidentally stumbled across (though never suspected his murderous secret). Rader was obsessed with extreme bondage pornography and violence. See more »

NOT ''Boooooooring''... unless you're prepubescent.
28 November 2018 | by p_ferlandSee all my reviews

People should have to state their age group when posting comments here. I'm in the 50+ group and loved the slow burning tension of this movie. Most teenagers will post things like ''Boooooooring'' and I understand. No gunfights, no blood and gore, no supernatural mumbo jumbo, no superheroes. Just a glimpse inside the minds of ordinary people living extraordinary events.

Really more of a psychological suspense than a killer-thriller.

Excellent cast, some additional intensity would've been good here and there, but I respect the director's vision of this story.

So many bad movies out there... this is not one of them.
