Offers an intriguing perspective on the darker side of American values, but lacks the conviction to entirely expose the cultural contradictions that often enable compulsive murderers.
This atypical serial-killer thriller distinguishes itself in resisting thrills - let alone any actual violence - till well past its halfway point...
McDermott's matter-of-factness during increasingly disturbing behavior is skin crawling, made all the more eerie set in Skiles's depiction of small town virtue.
The Clovehitch Killer is a truly scary and surprisingly thoughtful flick which transcends the trappings of its genre roots with sterling direction and a minimalistic approach to horror.
The Clovehitch Killer is one of the best horror films to come out this year. It's intelligent and subversive, and it captures the banality of small-town life perfectly.
It's not only a realistic portrait of a conservative Middle America but a devastating portrayal of what happens when a family goes murderously awry.
Skiles' direction and Plummer's performance, plus the focus on darkness permeating a small town suburbia, lends the film a My Friend Dahmer-esque vibe that will undoubtedly attract a sizeable following
By The Clovehitch Killer's tragic finale, we're able to forgive any sort of experimental misfires since it sticks the landing so well.
