The Clovehitch Killer Has Been Influenced by a Real Life Serial Killer: First Trailer

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
IFC Midnight will release the horror thriller The Clovehitch Killer. This film stars Dylan McDermott as a potential serial killer, discovered by his young son. This title had its World Premiere at the LA Film Festival, where it was mostly positively reviewed. Now, The Clovehitch Killer is set to show in theatres and on Digital platforms, this November. This suspenseful thriller also stars Charlie Plummer as the son, along with: Samantha Mathis, Madisen Beaty and Brenna Sherman. The film's first trailer is available here.

Dennis Harvey, at Variety, has already reviewed the film. He says of the film's narrative structure: "the movie takes a structural risk, diverging from its hitherto straightforward chronology to backtrack and re-tell part of the story from a different perspective." The Clovehitch Killer does not play out as one might expect. Harvey also mentions that this is nearly a bloodless film and not really for the horror crowd. Instead, this is a film full of tension: "editors Megan Brooks and Andrew Hasse’s careful pacing builds considerable nervous anticipation." This title is a slow burn, with some conflict and should not be missed by those favouring more thrilling fare.

The Clovehitch Killer will be available soon. The release date has been announced as November 16th. On this date, U.S. citizens can see the film on the big or small screens; this film looks tense. And, based on a real life killer (the BTK killer), this title is sure to bring a satisfying time, this Fall season.

Release Date: November 16th, 2018 (VOD, Theatrical).

Director: Duncan Skiles.

Writer: Christopher Ford.

Cast: Charlie Plummer, Dylan McDermott, Samantha Mathis.
