Editorial Reviews

At first glance, Ken Boyd may seem like an average comic enthusiast, living with his mother and working to make ends meet as an underpaid, underappreciated ice cream parlor attendant. But Ken has a dirty little secret: he fantasizes about killing people. After being released from a stay in the loony bin, for severe mental trauma suffered when he was beaten and tortured by a gang of high school thugs, Ken's repressed anger suddenly reaches a boiling point. With gleeful enthusiasm Ken hunts down his tormentors, one by one, and exacts his bloody revenge.

If you're tired of formulaic fare - both at the multiplex and in the horror movie scene - this film is a breath of fresh air. Had the pleasure of seeing this at a festival last year and it's one of the best indie movies I've seen in a long while. The clever storyline seems to be a psycho thriller about a misfit's revenge then shifts into a tale about said misfit trying to find love and happiness before giving way to a third act that throws all manner of curveballs at the viewer. Great performance from Kevin Corrigan in a rare lead role plus fun supporting performances from Barry Bostwick and Karen Black, both of whom steal scenes with a veteran's skill. It's also directed with an eye for color and deadpan dark wit by Jack Perez, who also helmed the underrated LA CUCARACHA. This is a cult movie in the making - and fans of that sort of fare are advised to take a gamble on this deserving effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Laugh Out Loud Dark Comic Snarkiness! July 4, 2012
By Mark
Format:DVD
POSSIBLE MILD SPOILERS:

As a horror enthusiast, I like to see how scared a movie can make me feel. Some Guy Who Kills People is not that kind of movie.

I've never appreciated Horror/Comedy movies very much (preferring to keep the genres separate), but Some Guy who Kills People has some of the funniest lines spoken by the quirkiest characters in the Horror/Comedy ouevre I've ever seen.

The filmmakers managed to assemble a near-perfect cast of social retro-misfits in some strange and very Californian alternate '50's universe. The humour is mostly in the asides, such as when Ronald - the goody-two shoes religious boyfriend of the young leading lady's mother - says in a creepy, robotic monotone, "Lord, please send someone to aid this precious child and steer her down a righteous path Amen." while leaving the eleven year-old stabbing at some horrible TV dinner to go to a bible study group.

Barry Bostwick as the town sheriff is hilarious in several sight gags where you can't help but laugh. Karen Black is predictably creepy as the 34 year-old protagonist's (Kevin Corrigan) long-suffering mother - and so funny, too.

Somehow all the madness in this weird psycho-cosmos works its way through to a satisfactory end and everything is right again in the world.

No CG effects plus all real-time physical gags and lines make this quite a funny movie.

Not really a horror movie whatsoever but as a comedy Some Guy Who Kills People has some killer moments.

Now, let's give it the proper treatment that it deserves: add some subtitles and bump it up to a Blu-ray version.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice surprise!!! June 15, 2012
Format:DVD
I am always suspicious of movies billed as "horror/comedy", but this little gem does not disappoint! The story, characters and funny dialog makes this one of the best dark comedies I have seen in a while. Don't let the "gore" aspect scare you away if it is not your thing...there is a lot more to this movie than a few gruesome murders! It is also a heartwarming story of a man who discovers a long lost gift from his sad and haunted past. This event encourages him to get his life on the right track, even though something very sinister hangs over his head. Kudos to Ryan Levin for coming up with an original, smart, bittersweet, bloody little script! I will be watching this one again-- with friends!

3.0 out of 5 stars THIS FILM IS COMEDY GOLD June 14, 2012
Format:DVD
This is a review of the film itself and is an abbreviated version of a much longer review I've done of the film.

Going into Some Guy Who Kills People I didn't know much about the film and going by the trailer, I wasn't expecting much either. This can often work in favour of a film if the film is done well enough. When expectations are low even a mediocre or bad film can seem pretty good. But every once and awhile, a film far surpasses expectations. This film didn't just kill it's own characters, it had me dying with laughter. Don't get fooled by the trailer... you'll only end up a fool yourself.

Fans looking for tons of red stuff might be a little disappointed. While there are a few moments of bloody goodness, this film isn't exactly designed for the gore hounds out there. Sure it's called "Some Guy Who Kills People" but the death sequences don't strike me as being the sort of thing that would tickle your sanguinary fancy.

The trailer makes the film appear really low budget. And to be honest, it doesn't look much better when you actually see the film. Sure everything is in focus, the film is generally center framed and it tells the story extremely well, but nothing is going to scream out at you as being overly clever. The cinematography isn't about to blow you away. It's clean and clear but not glossy. This is what you expect your standard low budget film to look like.

Now that I've gotten the negatives out of the way let me start on the positives. First is the story. While it seems extremely simple in concept (standard high school revenge film), Ryan A. Levin has written something that is a little bit above standard fare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome indie film that should be seen by all June 13, 2012
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this film. The conversations between the sheriff and his deputy crack me up. The dialogue by all the characters is clever (and poignant when it needs to be). The actors were wonderful. An interesting story with great actors. This film is a prime example why more people should give independent films a chance.
