The Killer Inside Me

Deputy Sheriff Casey Affleck is the softly spoken, ever polite facade of a Texan small town. This gentle example of Southern wholesomeness conceals a brutal, corrupt and murderous inner nature in 'The Killer Inside Me'.

On the one hand, this film is a throwback to 1940s film noir with it's stylish representation of 1950s small town USA and it's operatic soundtrack. On the other hand it contains sickening images of brutality which had me, and others in the audience when I attended, averting eyes from the screen. I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised given the film's title.

A very confronting film.
