"I do not a serial killer"! The name of the movie and response asks 15-year-old John Wayne, a psychotherapist. John — a typical outsider in grade school: virtually no friends he does not seek them to start, most of the free time he holds the morgue, helping the mother-to the pathologist. Have here we see the typical teenager sublimation, where his desire to kill the local bullies he replaces the dismemberment of dead bodies. it Seems that that's it boy get out of control. Typical episode: the scene in the school cafeteria when John force compresses the fork and pokes her in the table at the time of the next baiting hooligans.

However, John is not breaks. In a typical small American city is declared a maniac. He cuts the bodies of people leaving at the meta of the crime drop of the mysterious black substance. The Sheriff is not understand what happens. John is not can accept attention to such events. It is obsessed with serial killers, and the film demonstrate this through the reports of John on most famous the brutal murderers of our time.

And boy do manage to track down this monster, here is just do with the information collected? Calling the police is not resulted in a good. He continues to monitor the killer, leaving him notes calling on mobile phone. In we can see a very typical example of Subversion — is a technique of cinema, in which the cliches turned inside out. In middling Thriller maniac does what makes John: watching the victim leaves a message, strongly undermines psychological balance of the persecuted.

The supernatural element of the film, my opinion, is more damaging. Whether it's story serial small megomaniac — it was the film is a must-have in the Treasury of the cinephile, but got a little worse. Mysticism in this context looks like an alien ingredient, accidentally fallen in a pot of a soup does not spoil the dish entirely, but and enjoy the taste in fully have not.

"I do not a serial killer" — all trying to prove in their daily lives an unusual young man, the strangeness of which is only his addiction to the murders, the human body of sociopathy. But all his only an unusual hobby, which he, even in a conversation with your psychologist recognize, simply chose from the thousands of other available to modern man.

John helps her mother, who works as a pathologist in a small town, to deal with corpses, enjoy the art of emitting blood and sees something beautiful in the human bodies. All the above looks like a significant mental disorder, but the film so the main character is not shows especially becomes noticeable when in a small town there is a real serial killer who kills because of his thirst.

I admit, not I expect like in the film "I do not a serial killer" — not just a Thriller, as stated in description this and in some places atmospheric horror and more — fiction. Not going into details regarding the main prankster of the entire celebration, but the authors of the tape managed to deploy a good story keeps the intrigue almost all screen time.

Unexpectedly high-quality, interesting and atmospheric film, even gives old-school features in especially in its scenery, visuals, and of course, organ soundtrack in the film.

In 2010, the years in numerous horror and Thriller became evident a clear trend — style the good old eighties. It can be direct remakes of adaptation new adaptations of king ("It", "Carrie"), attempts to revive the old classics (the prequel to "Something", the TV series "ash vs evil dead") and, finally, postmodern Hommage (TV series "Mysterious events"). On this background, the movie "I not a serial killer" is both typical and a bit original.

Many of the authors of the new horror try to reproduce the atmosphere of old quotes and references, transferring actions in the same the eighties, the use of "melodies and rhythms" of old music. It looks like this often very soundly and even fresh (as in same "Mysterious events"). But verified often an obvious narrative, though, and warms the soul of fans, not scary — copying the classics, the authors inevitably copy and familiar the story features the classics. In the result is something very recognizable, but while in bright colored wrapper of the present.

"I do not a serial killer" produces the opposite impression. Here is a "wrapper" is very old and simple, though it took an abandoned warehouse shelf — must have contributed to this small budget picture. If you don't know the film was released in 2016, you'd think watch a real movie of the era VHS. Quite pale and fuzzy mid-2010 years picture, minimalist soundtrack, unhurried narration — all even something unusual to see in the era of the "video clip" movie. Yeah and the plot is very old-fashioned: in the film works a minimum of characters in a small American town, and present this issue is that your smartphones and GPS devices.

The contents, however, are not quite standard. Horror because often assumes that we have an obvious way to fear and to worry about the main character, who is faced with evil. But the protagonist himself as it show first scenes, causing issues: a is the good side? Teenage sociopath, fascinated by the subject of serial killers and he inclined to similar to impulses, is faced with unknown maniac. The obsession with the topic makes him the hunt for a maniac that will lead to very unexpected discoveries. The pensive spectator is not time to ask the question: there are evil it looks for the main character?.. and maybe it just it fantasy?

The filmmakers do not trying to scare us forwards because of the angle of killers with a knife, and of the cries of the victims we do not hear. Scary because don't know — what is going on? This approach struck me as much more interesting than trying new bright colors to describe the obvious confrontation between the "good" characters with  the"evil" monsters.

Summary: a simple execution low-budget, but interesting old-school horror story 2016.

Definitely recommended to view.
