Editorial Reviews

Review

"Two Thumbs Up" --Ebert & Roeper

" Director Tricia Brock has captured lightning in a bottle! Killer Diller is the best cinematic homage to American music since The Commitments." --Fox TV, Kansas City

"The real thief turns out to be Black, who steals the movie and makes Killer Diller worth the time served." --STL Today

Product Description

When guitar-playing car thief Wesley Benfield (William Lee Scott) is sentenced to a halfway house in the middle of the Bible Belt, he's forced to play "church music" with his fellow convicted residents. The band's future looks bleak...until Wesley meets Vernon (Lucas Black), an autistic savant whose rocking piano skills give them the spark they need to become the red-hot Killer Diller Blues Band. But before they can take the world by storm, all they have to do is break the law one more time.
Infused with toe-tapping soul of the South, Killer Diller is based on Clyde Edgerton's highly acclaimed novel and features blues legends Taj Mahal and Keb Mo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why can't more movies be like Killer Diller? January 16, 2008
You can read the product description for a plot synopsis, I won't recap it here. Killer Diller is a wonderful surprise of a movie. The music rocks, the story is funny, sweet and uplifting and the acting is pure and completely believable. What a refreshing change from the tired, Hollywood formula movies. No ensemble cast, no overhyped overexposed actors, no phony sets. I love that it was filmed in central Missouri and I loved the reference to John Lee Hooker at the end. Perfect.

In this age of special effects, who done it's and horror flicks; this is a refreshing movie with diverse characters coming together to use their talents. The music is excellent...

5.0 out of 5 stars Give us a Sountrack April 5, 2009
This was a very entertaining movie that anyone can enjoy. The music by the Killer Diller Blues Band is the best Contemperary blues I have heard in a while. I think we are in titled to have a soundtrack from this movie. Niki J. Crawford has a tremendous voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer Movie September 4, 2010
What a great movie. Good acting, great music, easy to follow no nonsense plot and a happy ending. Wesley is arrested (again) and is sent to a half-way house run by Baptist Fred Willard, who is looking for kids who can play musical instrument so they can sing hymns. The music they sing is not very exciting (sorry Jesus) until Wesley discovers an autistic piano player (Vernon) who can wail.
Vernon has a low class dirt poor father who cares for him and doesn't want him playing in public. Vernon sneaks out to play in the band and of course trouble follows. The film moves along at a pretty good clip with no bad scenes to drag it down. For those who like good old fashion Taj Mahal blues, you won't want to miss this one.

By Laura K

I bought this movies because I am a Lucas Black fan. (Friday Night Lights, Fast & the Furious Toyko Drift). It is a great movie for the entire family, no profanity, etc. A good story with an underlying sense of humor with great music. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's For sure a killer of a positive picture. November 26, 2010
This film is breath of fresh air, a cool drink of water if you will. because the performances of the actors are great, the cast does a great job. strange but not so strange it did'nt get much press or attention(Hollywood never or hardly promotes the Good lifting ones). i really wish they would've though, because it's one uplifting picture about a guy who is a bit troubled finds redemption in a friendship of new gifted friend. i really enjoyed this film, not only because i love blues music, but because the movie had a good message to it.

It's PG-13 For Language and action scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Was July 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
A movie about youth, friendship and loyalty with an amazing soundtrack and missing graphic sex scenes and violence, those don't come along very often and when you discover one buy it and treasure it. I stumbled onto this movie as an instant watch through Netflix, so why not, what did I have to lose. I lost nothing and gained hope, joy and insight. The next day I ordered the movie and have rewatched it several times. Never a fan, I have a new appreciation for the Blues. The music alone is worth watching this movie. Set in my home state of Missouri with few well known actors, the setting is authentic and the premise that talent can be found in the most unlikely places is plausable. The family dynamics, well-meaning social programs set in a small college town and unlikely friendships resulted in a film that is hopeful and heartwarming. Killer Diller is a Killer Diller movie.

I love this movie. I figured it would be a low budget horror movie, but no. It's a heartwarming and funny tale about a group of juvenile delinquents who make good musically.
