Short Review: How To Be A Serial Killer.

Premise: A man balances his relationship with his girlfriend while taking a video store clerk in as his protege in the fine art of serial killing.

Starring: Dameon Clarke, Matthew Gray Gubler, Laura Regan, and George Wyner.

My Reaction: This is a very dark comedy, but a comedy nonetheless. It's also in a bit of a mockumentary-type style (similar to The Office). There are some similarities with Dexter, I suppose, but Dexter's more serious in tone. I wouldn't necessarily say it's incredibly memorable considering I watched it last week and I can hardly remember a thing about it. That being said, I was rather entertained while watching it. There were three main segments of the film. There was George Wyner as a psychiatrist just talking about the nature of killers. There was Demeon Clarke as the main serial killer character talking on a big stage about the major rules and whatnot to follow to be a successful serial killer. And then there are the segments with him and Matthew Gray Gubler, who plays the protege. The highlight of the movie is definitely Matthew Gray Gubler, who you might also recognize from (500) Days of Summer. It also became easy to figure out, as you started to catch on that whenever Dameon Clarke or George Wyner would talk about something, the next "real life" segment would mirror whatever was just said. Overall, it's an entertaining movie, and it's a decent way to spend an hour and a half. It's just not super fantastic or anything.
