I Am Not a Serial Killer (Indie Film – Sort of Scary Thriller, Based on a Book)

John Wayne Cleaver is concerned that he will one day become a serial killer.  He has all the classic signs — even his therapist agrees — but he knows he doesn’t want to be a killer.  But when a serial killer comes to his small town John knows he may be the one best equipped to stop the killings, even if that means breaking some of his own strict rules.


For those who miss Dexter Morgan you will find a lot to like in the books by Dan Wells as well as this movie adaptation of the first book in the series.  I’m always nervous to see a book I enjoyed put on the screen, but this is a great adaptation.  The lead, Max Records, is a believable teenage boy fighting with inner demons and Christopher Lloyd was cast perfectly!
