Director: Billy O’Brien (2017) BBFC cert: 15
There’s a beating heart full of love within this off beat and disturbingly entertainingly horror.
Young actor, Max Records, is terrific as John Cleaver, a bullied high school student works part time at the family mortuary and believes himself to have the potential to be a serial killer.
Veteran Christopher Lloyd has fun as his elderly neighbour and only friend.
But when John believes he’s discovered the existence of a real serial killer at large, his life takes a doubtful turn.
Due to the smart writing, assured direction and performances of rigid conviction, this is a macabre, small town joy.
