I Am Not A Serial Killer trailer looks like a chilly horror gem

Christopher Lloyd might be a monster in I Am Not A Serial Killer trailer

The trailer for I Am Not A Serial Killer has arrvied ahead of its Fantasia Film Festival showing (via Arrow In The Head) and it looks very promising indeed.

The film stars Christopher Lloyd, Max Records (Where The Wild Things Are) and Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad, Neverwhere), and is adapted by Billy O’Brien from Dan Wells’ novel.

“John Wayne Cleaver is dangerous, and he knows it. He’s spent his life doing his best not to live up to his potential.

He’s 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 he’s written for himself, practicing normal life as if it were a private religion that could save him from damnation.

Dead bodies are normal to John. He likes them, actually. They don’t demand or expect the empathy he’s unable to offer. Perhaps that’s what gives him the objectivity to recognize that there’s something different about the body the police have just found behind the Wash-n-Dry Laundromat—and to appreciate what that difference means.

Now, for the first time, John has to confront a danger outside himself, a threat he can’t control, a menace to everything and everyone he would love, if only he could.”

The trailer looks excellent, and we’re hoping to see this one in the UK soon.
