Here around the Dread Central office we’re big fans of films described as uber violent and chilling so we’re looking forward to IFC’s roll-out of The Killer Inside Me, and to help get you guys excited too, we have two clips for you to dig on.
IFC will release Michael Winterbottom’s The Killer Inside Me today (June 18th) theatrically in New York, and the film will be available on demand beginning today as well. A national theatrical expansion begins June 25th. It stars Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba, Elias Koteas, Kate Hudson, Bill Pullman, Ned Beatty, and Simon Baker.
Based on the classic novel by legendary pulp writer Jim Thompson (called by Stanley Kubrick “the most chilling and believable first-person story of a criminally warped mind I have ever encountered”), The Killer Inside Me tells the story of handsome, unassuming small town sheriff’s deputy Lou Ford (Affleck). A quiet charmer of his idyllic West Texas town, Ford has a simple life and a pretty girl (Hudson) to come home to. But when the job brings him face-to-face with a gorgeous prostitute (Alba) on the edge of town, Ford’s fragile world cracks – unbridling his own dark urges. In The Killer Inside Me’s blacker-than-noir universe, nothing is ever what it seems.
