Editorial Reviews

Fresh out of College, Heck Prigusivac (Jonathan Tucker) finds himself stuck in his hometown, where the biggest industry is the local jail. As a result of the Prigusivac predisposition for murder - Heck's late father called Death Row "home", and now his estranged brother Chick (Jeremy Renner) is behind bars- finding a "proper" job proves difficult. Desperate, Heck takes a job known as a "Closer" at the prison. Only after he falls for Chick's ex-girlfriend, the convicted murderess Dori (Walk the Line's Ginnifer Goodwin) also on Death Row, does he realize: he is the Executioner! Now, caught in a lustful, twisted love triangle, Heck discovers that perhaps he isn't so different from Chick. After all, the only way he can get the girl is if one of them winds up dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Really Twisted Dark Comedy (In A Good Way) May 15, 2006
By Rusty
I saw this at SXSW, last year and just found out it's available. Very sick and funny!

Essentially, the hero just graduated from college with a degree in Classical Languages. He wants to teach high school Latin but ends up being a prison executioner in the small town where he grew up.

Complicating matters, his big brother's on death row (for trying to kill him) and so is his brother's ex-girlfriend. Creating a uniquely hilarious love triangle.

I found out that the lead, Jonathan Tucker, actually took Latin in high school. Making his scenes trying to teach Latin to the prisoners even funnier.

If you like Monty Python, Harold and Maude and Grosse Point Blank, you'll like this.

Kyle Bergersen wrote and directed this very strange comedic film noir, a movie that didn't get a lot of attention in its theatrical release but that is gaining a following in the DVD format. It is smart, clever, weird, and very well made. Bergersen has the ability to take a rather silly story to reveal a lot of important questions about education, capital punishment, prison life, and the delicate balance between humanity and inhumanity! LOVE COMES TO THE EXECUTIONER works.

Heck Prigusivac (Jonathan Tucker) is a fresh graduate form college, having majored in Latin and Romance Languages, who returns to his small hometown where his ditsy alcoholic mother Miriam (Christine Ebersole) struggles with her addiction and with the fact that her son Chick (Jeremy Renner) sits on Death Row in the neighboring prison. Heck lands a job teaching Latin to the inmates, but with the proviso that he also accept the job as Closer (or Executioner). Heck adjusts to the strange situation and manages to learn the trade of capital punishment by lethal injection. He confronts his estranged brother Chick on death row and the two have word battles about their relationship AND the fact that Chick's ex-girlfriend Dori Dumchovic (Ginnifer Goodwin) is the first female to sit on death row a few cells down form Chick. Heck and Dori flirt and Heck 'falls' for Dori, actually impregnating her in the confines of the prison. Heck manages to become a popular Latin teacher with the inmates, but has some psychological stress as the Closer - especially as the time for Heck to execute Dori approaches.

I thought this movie was okay but if you are a big Jeremy Renner fan than it is worth buying.

The shipping was fast and very reasonably priced, and the DVD came in great condition, just as was advertised. The region coding looks to be as advertised too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not good... But, not bad. September 7, 2013
By D Tally
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I only watched it because Jeremy Renner was in it. You will know the plot after watching just a bit of it. It's absurd and mildly funny...which I think is what the filmmaker intended... It just doesn't quite hit the mark. Ginnifer Goodwin and Jeremy Renner are good in their roles, as is Jonathan Tucker. And, there are a couple of funny scenes, one with the mother... Watch it, don't watch it...

Really not my movie of preference, but you can't deny the acting was good. Again, was interested in seeing some of Jeremy Renner's early performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE!!! March 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this movie!!! I loved the relationship between the two brothers and all the characters had their shining moment. My very favorite moment was when Chick sang American Pie :-) I recommend this film to people who like dark comedies. It was not too dark though...just a little bit. Jeremy Renner is a phenomenal actor-just in case you hadn't figured that out! lol

Another Renner Movie that I can watch 100 times or more. It doesn't hurt that I may have a small lady crush on Ginnifer Goodwin. But both were excellent in this movie. Also. Read more
