Brian is a disturbed child with sociopath tendencies dealing with a father who doesn't love him, a mother unconvinced of his violent nature, and a newly adopted sister he believes is there to replace him. After a series of escalating violent incidents, he is bounced around from failed therapist to failed therapist, maturing into a young man still unable to escape his anger issues. When his life eventually falls apart by his own choices, Brian blames his series of failed therapists, embracing his dark nature and taking his revenge on everyone who ever wronged him - one by one, finally understanding that accepting who you are inside can be the best therapy.Written by
This movie needs to be given credit for not going the usual route when it comes to slasher/psycho-killer films. It starts by allowing us to get to the know the killer during his formative years then takes us on a journey as he seems to meet one awful character after another. The movie in no way follows the path of most slasher films, but it also has a disjointed feel. While we get to know the lead, everyone else is pretty much one-dimensional. You can have pity for some of the victims in this , but I guarantee this movie does such a good job of making you feel sympathy for the killer that you'll be rooting for him. Michael Qeliqi is excellent (and very handsome) as the older Brian and Jonathan Tysor is great playing the younger Brian but they must have been hired on their acting abilities alone because they look nothing alike. The movie does not flow well, and some characters had me wondering if I was suppose to like them or hate them. In all, it could have been better written but I was surprised at how deeply it went into the mind of a psycho in the making. Worth a one time watch .
