A loner kid who enjoys horror movies and is bullied at school finds out his teenage brother is a serial killer. The kid wonders if it runs in the family and tries to reconnect with his brother in hopes of getting him to stop killing.
Sometimes one watches a movie that disturbs the hell out of you. For me, it doesn't happen much. When it does, the story is almost always guaranteed to push some sort of boundaries (as excellent horror movies do). This movie really digs deep into the psyche of a young child and the family dynamic. It's a slow, engrossing movie that when it brings the gore, goes all out. It actually has one of the sicker scenes I've seen in awhile. The story (and at time poor acting) is sure to turn away many viewers, but I think this is a fantastic first effort by the director who is now on my watch list.
