I Am Not a Serial Killer is dark, funny and disturbing gem with a genre-bending twist, about a small town teenager in the US obsessed with serial killers, who unwittingly discovers the identity of the killer who has been slaughtering residents for body parts.
Featuring a star-making lead performance from 17-year-old Max Records, and an extraordinary turn from Back To The Future’s legendary Christopher Lloyd, I Am Not a Serial Killer was a big hit when it premiered at the South By Southwest Film Festival in March, and was a must-see film at the prestigious BFI London Film Festival.
John Wayne Cleaver is dangerous and he knows it. He is 16 and helps his Mum and Aunt at the family Mortuary. John is obsessed with serial killers but really doesn’t want to become one. So for his own sake and the safety of those around him he lives by rigid rules to keep himself “good” and “normal”. When somebody starts murdering people in John’s small Mid-West town, he has to investigate and risk letting his own dark side out in order to stop the killer. But without his rules to keep him in check he might be more dangerous than the monster he is stalking. As the icy winter tightens its grip on the community a deadly supernatural game of cat and mouse ensues…
Directed by Billy O’Brien (who made the award-winning Irish horror hit Isolation) and filmed on 16mm by award-winning director of photography Robbie Ryan (Slow West; I, Daniel Blake), I Am Not a Serial Killer is release in cinemas and on demand across the UK on December 9th.
