Killer Movie 2008 R

Amazon Instant Video

(40) IMDb 4.7/10

Television director Jake Tanner is out of a job. The reality show he was working on has been cancelled, and now his agent has landed him a job as replacement director on yet another reality show -this one tracing the unlikely winning streak of a North Dakota high school hockey team. The first order of business for Jake is to contend with demanding celebutante Blanca Champion, who has been hired as a production assistant. But Blanca doesn't take the job too seriously; when she's not taking cat naps or hitting on the local boys, she spends most of her time researching an upcoming film role she hopes will be her breakthrough. Later, when crew-members start disappearing, Blanca proves to be the least of his worries. The body count is piling up fast, but who could be responsible: the bible-thumping ex-convict from the backwoods, the short-fused hockey coach, or perhaps the producer with an unhealthy fixation on ratings?

It looks like other reviewers here are probably involved with the film. I am not; I just watched it. This movie is the average slasher fare with a reality show spin on it. Even though the storyline is not so original, I still found the movie likeable all the way to the end. It has the cheesiness but doesn't look cheap, some humor, decent kill scenes, and good music scores. Slasher movie fans would particularly find this film entertaining.

I saw Killer Movie in a film festival a couple of months ago. It was so funny at times, and really creepy at others. The acting was great, and the characters were so interesting and multifaceted. The dialogue was witty and fresh, and Kaley Cuoco's one-liners had me laughing out loud. But even with all the humor, you never forget that you're watching a horror movie. The gory details are horrifying and the murders creative and original. I won't spoil anything, but it'll leave you thinking, "I never would have thought to kill someone like that." You really have to see for yourself. I strongly recommend this movie for any horror or comedy fan.

KILLER MOVIE is the silly, creepy, gory tale of documentary film-making gone horribly awry. We follow a film crew as they work on a doc about a small town's high school hockey team. Of course, there's a masked maniac at large, and people begin dying awful, squishy deaths. Said maniac is an interesting fellow, w/ his own unique take on reality TV. KM has gallons of blood and several dismemberments, yet manages to remain fun and interesting. The characters are solid, especially Kaley Cuoco (tv'S BIG BANG THEORY) as a total wench of an actress who gets a much needed attitude tune up by movie's end! So, if you enjoy comedic horror w/ extra sauce, KILLER MOVIE should slake that thirst...

If you want a good suspensful horror movie then look no further than Killer Movie. This movie will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat until the very last scene. This is a different type of horror movie as it is about a group of people making a documentary/reality tv show and things go really wrong in the process. This is a movie within a movie so thats pretty different than most movies today. There is some gore in the movie but it's not overly done which I like. There are also some funny parts in the movie so you get horror and comedy in the same movie. This movie has a great cast as well including Kaley Cuoco (8 Simple Rules and The Big Bang Theory), Jason London, Paul Wesley (The Vampire Diaries), JC Chasez (he makes a cameo), and so many more people.

If you are looking for a different movie then look no further than Killer Movie.

Although billed as a slasher movie satire I didn't seen any satire while watching it. This aside, it's actually not a bad movie. I enjoyed watching what turned out to be a well-played tale about small-town murder involving the hapless members of a reality TV crew and their accompanying Z-list hopefuls.

Despite the routine scenario and, with one or two exceptions, a cast made up of actors who aren't particularly well-known, they all produced entertaining work from an only average script. Although Leighton Meester has done quite a lot of film work, the best known name in the cast is probably Kaley Cuoco, who maybe took this on as a useful addition to her résumé. What other admirers of Kaley's characters in 8 Simple Rules and The Big Bang Theory make of her portrayal in this movie of an unpleasant, somewhat desperate wannabe, struggling on the fringes of recognition in the acting business, isn't for me to say, but I think she's made a professional job of it. On the strength of this movie I'd like to see what she does with a much bigger budget thriller.

Recommended with beer and pizza. Quite acceptable for an evening in.

A slasher gem for the new generation. A very good direct to dvd movie. I would kind of compare it to the scream movies just a little for its comedy moments but just your typical slasher movie, a good plot, good acting, and good kills. I would recommend it to slasher fans.

Predictability factor aside, pretty darn good. Usual cast of characters, some you like and some you don't. Some you want to get butchered and some you don't. (oh no there is a dog!) There are intentional laughs and they are fun. They cast does a good job especially Kaley Cuoco as the spoiled actress and Paul Wesley as the embattled director. TV crew goes to White Plains Minn (I think) to film a failure to success high school hockey team and get involved in....murder...duh, duh duuuuuuuh! Of course you have the hateful lady producer, the jock, the spunky girl, the sweet locals the dastardly killer. I love that they don't take themselves too seriously. Fin and entertaining and you should get "who done it". I do love Paul Wesley.

I'm not much of a scary movie person. I actually avoid them at all costs. The only reason I ordered this one was because it had Paul Wesley in it. I must say for a scary movie it was actually really good. I watched it twice in one day with different family members and both really liked it as well.
