Tyler Burnside (Charlie Plummer) is just a normal kid. He’s in the Boy Scouts, goes to church, looks after the elderly and even has a decent relationship with his Scout Master father Don played by Dylan McDermott. One day while investigating his father’s man cave he discovers a clue about the town’s most infamous citizen, The Clovehitch Killer.
The discovery sets Tyler into detective mode to find out more about the elusive killer who was never brought to justice. Over a decade ago, The Clovehitch Killer claimed thirteen female victims but has been dormant ever since. Joining him on his endeavour is Kassi (Madisen Beaty) a girl who has long been obsessed about the murders.
The film’s creepiness really comes out in how normal Tyler and his family seem on the surface. With your internal detective kicked into overdrive, even the smallest gesture seems to have a dark undertone. These seemingly innocuous events turn crazy at an alarming rate as the films gathers momentum. It’s an unnerving ride that will keep you guessing until its ultimate conclusion.
