I Am Not A Serial Killer will have its world premiere in the prestigious SXSW Film Festival on March 13th and will screen in the festival until the 19th of March. Fifteen-year old John Cleaver is dangerous, and he knows it. He’s obsessed with serial killers, but really doesn’t want to become one. Terrible impulses constantly tempt him, so for his own sake, and the safety of those around, he lives by rigid rules to keep himself “good” and “normal”. However, when a real monster shows up in his town he has to let his dark side out in order to stop it – but without his rules to keep him in check, he might be more dangerous than the monster he’s trying to kill. This deliciously dark tale is directed by BAFTA nominated Billy O’Brien who also adapted the screenplay from the novel by Dan Wells. The Grade, Sound Design, Sound Mix, VFX and Online were all completed here at Egg.
Max Records (Where the Wild Thigs Are) plays the lead role while Christopher Lloyd (Back to theFuture, The Adams Family) and Laura Fraser (breaking Bad) also star. The film is being produced by Nick Ryan, Robbie Ryan, and Billy O’Brien of Floodland Pictures alongside The Tea Shop and Film Company’s (Tower Block) James Harris and Mark Lane.
Funding is provided by the Irish Film Board, Quickfire Films and The Fyzz Facility.
