Before you figure out what is going on, we are already down to one victim left who is soon chased. She is our heroine of the story. We don't know this at the get-go because not one moment has been spent on getting to know anyone.
The ending is a bizarre twist of things which I wont reveal here, but certainly makes you shake your head and wonder what has really happened.
I did not like the film. Although I give it props for maybe changing up the patterns a little, in the end, I dont think it works. There is no set up, no character development, no location to identify, and no motivation or morality to adhere. There is nothing from a narrative point of view that adds up to anything worthwhile.
Technically speaking, I think it is well produced with good direction and camera work. The acting leaves some to be desired, but given its generally a low budget film, it is permissible on some level.
But all the technical merits I might garnish it does not save it, but if anything, makes it a little more watchable.
With that said, I did see the whole thing because of its uncharacteristic structure, I was curious to see where it would go. It seems the surprises that happened initially did not do anything for the plot, just seemed to make things happen faster. Critically, this film needs to be reworked, even if in a cliche slasher film format, it might be creepier. As it stands, it has no emotion and no intensity behind it leaving it flat and uninteresting.
I was ready to turn this off when I realized we were down to the last girl and still had a half hour to go. There'd been no thrills, a bit of gore, a bit of nudity but really nothing to write home about.
But then, with about 30 minutes to go the movie abandoned the formula. The killer "Big Stevie" breaks character and starts chatting, and things get weird.
It's not enough to redeem this by the numbers slasher flick, but at least it's something.
The story is not an unfamiliar one, as five friends arrive at an isolated house in the wilderness for a weekend of fun, and almost immediately, bad things start to happen, as they fall victim to a mysterious stranger, who brutally begins to eliminate them, one by one. With the action tightly crammed into a small two storey dwelling, the feeling of danger is all around, and the suspense quickly builds to a peak. Soon, one young woman is alone, matching wits against a resourceful killer.
The cast may not have any big names, but the performances are not bad for a film of this type. Allen Andrews has the movie's key role, as the strange, detached killer, `Big Stevie'. What drives him is a mystery, but he has no problem with dispassionately slamming a meat hook into the back of a neck, hanging the body up, and doing a little butchery. He is also a very neat fellow, quickly tidying up the mess after a kill. Stevie undergoes several personality shifts, which radically changes the tone of the film, setting the stage for a dramatic finish. The other outstanding performance is by Christine Haeberman, who is very believable as Aggie, the last survivor. Although terrified, she manages to keep her head clear. She makes some questionable choices, that nearly seal her fate, but luck is with her, as Stevie gets careless. Although she really should not be wearing glasses in the final scene, most everything else about the character is spot on realistic.Read more ›
He captures her, but of course she escapes- after all, she's about 90 lbs. to his 240 lbs., so it's a no-brainer. He gets her again, knocks her out, throws her in his car trunk (the one no one was concerned about earlier), drives home to his pathetic life, cheating wife and nerdy daughter, goes to bed, gets up the following morning, has breakfast and heads off to work, and for some reason decides to open his trunk, and viola! The titmouse kills him in his driveway - the end.
I can't begin to tell you how tired I am of seeing the tiny, fragile little titmouse female victim in a movie suddenly find the `inner strength' to rise above impossible odds and overtake her attacker when no one twice her size or strength could. Killers who do these crimes by profession and/or birthright and then get killed off stupidly at the end of these ridiculously bad horror flicks - it's the cinematic equivalent of a hamster overcoming and decimating a saber-tooth tiger... it's so friggin` far-fetched it makes my blood boil.Read more ›

I suspect that those giving this five stars were part of the production team. There is nothing about "Murder Loves Killers Too" to make it something to seek out or to avoid. Read morePublished on September 2, 2010 by Only-A-Child
A very low budget thriller that reminds us of horror movies that were made in the 80s. The movie apparently had such a low production budget that the movie turned out to be only 70... Read morePublished on May 22, 2010 by Amit Talpade

In the grand scheme of things the film by itself probably rates 3 or 4 stars. But for what it is attempting and how well it achieves it I would give it 5. Read morePublished on September 5, 2009 by T. Vaughan
