A shocking revelation turns a teenage boy's world upside down in this chilling look at the evil that can lurk below even the most wholesome surface. Tyler Burnside is a Boy Scout, a volunteer at his local church, and the dutiful son of an upstanding, community leader dad. Only one thing troubles the quiet Kentucky town he lives in: the unsolved murders-in which ten women were brutally tortured and killed by a psychopath known as Clovehitch-that rocked the community more than a decade ago. When Tyler discovers a cache of disturbing images in his father's possession, he begins to suspect that the man he trusts most in the world may be Clovehitch-and that his deadly rampage may not be over. With unrelenting tension, director Duncan Skiles crafts a picture-perfect vision of the all-American family-and then piece by piece rips it to shreds.

I didn't know what to expect from this movie. It was the only film I have ever seen directed by Robert Zemeckis. I had seen his previous film "The Fog" which was also a thriller, but I didn't expect him to tackle a murder mystery. After seeing the trailer for the movie I was pretty excited. I also knew it was going to be a slow burner, and maybe even predictable. I am glad I decided to check out this movie. It was a nice change from all the action thrillers that are coming out. This was a very slow burner film. The movie kept my interest from the beginning. I think I understood the mystery pretty well by the end of the movie. It was not like any of the other mysteries that I have seen. There were no crazy twists and turns. I have always seen mystery films like "The Usual Suspects" and "The Tenant" to have some crazy twists and turns. I thought this movie was not that way. The ending was very important to the movie. I thought that Robert Zemeckis did a good job with the ending. The ending was very emotional and I felt sad about the characters at the end. I loved how the characters looked at each other after they found out the truth. It was a really good ending. This is definitely not a film that I would recommend to everyone. I think that most people are going to enjoy this movie, but people that don't like mysteries would probably not like this film. People who like mysteries like "The Usual Suspects" and "The Tenant" will probably like this film. There are a few scenes in this film that really stood out to me. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes mysteries. I think that this movie will not be a big hit for everyone. I would recommend this film to anyone that has not seen it yet.

THE CLOVESHIP KILLER is a typical early seventies murder mystery, but it's more than that. It's a very moving film, and it certainly has a very strong (and serious) message. The mystery, which involves two families who seem to have very little in common, is a little hard to follow. And it's really very funny at times, too, which is always a good thing. I loved the story and the ending, and if you have a chance to watch it, it's well worth it.

I will admit that this film is not very good, but it is pretty good. I am not sure what I like about it. But in a perfect world this film would have been great. It was certainly not great, but it wasn't terrible. I love a good suspense, and this film had that. I do not want to say that I like the ending, but it wasn't bad. It didn't leave me hanging, so it was okay. I liked the character of Dr. Merton, played by Nic Cage. He had a good performance. The only bad part of this film is the ending. I know that it was meant to be good, but the ending is just weak. I like the ending in this film, but I can not help but wonder why they did it. The ending did not make sense, and it was not a good way to end it. That being said, I recommend this film to anyone who likes suspense films, especially for the fact that the film had a good ending. I give this film a B-.

There are so many movies that we watch as a generation to update ourselves. The Walking Dead was the first one that comes to mind and any movie that's tagged with the tag of "Predator" is only doing so much to come in line with its predecessor. Why are we still getting those films? Why does every movie need to go in a certain direction? We're all over the board with what movies can be, but as a generation, it's always been so easy to get lost in a foreign language with a city or town. If you have a deep history in the genre, there is no reason that you would choose a genre that's not familiar to you. The Clovehitch Killer is a well shot, well paced film that delivers much more than the typical PG-13 horror flick. When it comes to horror, it has always been the best and this movie does it again. The Clovehitch Killer really got my attention. I love the killer in the film and the ending is really shocking. It's a film that really gets it right with a lot of murder and mayhem and that is what makes this film a true gem.

A nice, but not entirely convincing character study. The character of Mrs. "Mariel's" son "James" is brought to the screen as a result of a (mostly successful) murder investigation. There are various hints at an event that might explain this with Mrs. "Mariel" being the killer. This leads to the somewhat interesting nature of the story as the FBI, for a good part of the movie, is unable to contact Mrs. "Mariel's" son and other other people in the area for a key clue to this murder case. It seems the FBI should not be on the case when it is a pretty easy one. Instead, the FBI have hired a local investigator who also is a friend of the suspect. Mrs. "Mariel" would be suspicious of the friend's involvement with the suspect, but because he is an FBI agent, this doesn't stop him from helping in the case. The FBI's suspicion is not totally unfounded as the friend is supposed to be a friend of the suspect, but the man's alibi for the murder is an obvious lie as he never leaves his home. The FBI man is then made to stop by the girlfriend of the suspect who believes his testimony. The girlfriend and the FBI man are having problems, and the boyfriend has no choice but to hire a killer, one that may be the boyfriend's father. This gives a very interesting aspect to the film as the girlfriend gets to play a major part in the murder case and the FBI man is very nice at it too. There are many twists in this movie. This is a good film to watch for the mystery and the characters.

Gavin O'Hara's first feature film, The Clovehitch Killer, is not to be missed. The title gives away the nature of the film: a psychological thriller about an elderly woman (played by the beautiful Amy Madigan) who goes to an isolated New England town to seek help for her husband's mental illness. The first thing that struck me was how dark and disconcerting the film was. Madigan plays an elderly woman who is diagnosed with dementia. Her husband, played by O'Hara, is a gifted writer. However, he has been behaving erratically, causing her to suspect he may be possessed by a devil, and he may be committing the murders. O'Hara plays his persona of an eccentric, twisted person. It's difficult to believe the husband is a person we should feel any sympathy for. I don't. I would never love to be as close to Madigan's character as she is, and it's all the more difficult for me to understand how O'Hara's performance could lead me to believe he is capable of such cruelty. Then, I read in one of the other comments that the film has a subtle but strong feminist message. What I believe is the message is that dementia is not a life-threatening condition, but it can have a negative effect on mental health. It is possible that people may be searching for help for this reason. I believe this message has an important point, but I will never know for sure. Madigan's performance is great and memorable. The film also has a great score, some good photography, and a great supporting cast. I would love to see O'Hara make a film that is better than The Clovehitch Killer. I think he has a good shot.

The Clovehitch Killer tells the story of a serial killer in the 1980's. (It's the first part of a two-part series that will be released in 2006) In the middle of the night in the small town of Clovehill, the local police detective Eddie Dee (Brian Keith) discovers a woman's body in the lake. There's something that's not right. And it's not the police investigation, which is tied up in what Eddie believes is the town's history and the tragic fate of local doctor James Alden (John Ritter). It's the killer's part of the story.and the police investigation. Lots of time is spent talking about the killer's motives. How he kills, and who he kills. And we see what's going on in his head. The Clovehitch Killer also doesn't have a lot of dialogue. Instead of having a lengthy monologue from the killer, it's more like a short, punchy script. There's no character development at all. I think it works because the film doesn't hold back. It's more like an unbroken monologue from the killer. Which is to say, the killer is never given a chance to really say anything. The guy doesn't have a voice. He just kind of speaks with a slow, deadpan style. But this adds to the scary feeling of the film. It adds to the mystery and it keeps you wondering. You want to know what's going on. And if you're ever watching this film, you'll know what I mean. There's a lot of slow-mo and close-ups of the killer's face, which give him a certain creepiness that's hard to describe. But mostly it's just a long monologue. It's really not necessary. It's not creepy. The killer's face is never on the screen. There's no creepy reveal. It's just a long, monologue. But it works. It works so well, in fact, that the killer doesn't even have a name. Instead, it's simply called The Clovehitch Killer. And that's what makes it creepy. The killer is anonymous. And that's why it's scary. It's a killer who knows very little about himself. He doesn't have any motives or any dialogue. He just tells the story. But the story is what makes it scary. It's more a character study than a serial killer piece. And it works well. There are some great scenes. The beginning is tense and mysterious. The killer just keeps talking, and you have to pay attention because he doesn't say anything. But eventually, you find out why he's doing it. It's the same sort of film that I always say that the first ten minutes are usually the best, because they are the most interesting. And this film's first ten minutes have some of the most interesting scenes. There's an interrogation scene between the killer and his lawyer (Daryl Hannah) where he tells her his life story. There's a scene where he's on the phone with his girlfriend (Pamela Reed), and she tells him about the things that he has done. And then there's the film's most violent scene. When the killer (who we don't see in a lot of the film) cuts the throat of his new victim. It's a very well-done scene. It's very effective because we don't know what's going to happen. He doesn't tell us anything. We just see his hands and his face, and we have to figure out what he's thinking. But I think that scene is the best part of the film. It's the scene that made me realize that I loved the film. There's a scene in the end that's a direct sequel to the first scene in the film, and it's very disturbing. It's just a really good scene. I would have liked to have seen more character development on the part of the killer. He doesn't say anything. And I'm not saying that that's a bad thing. It's just that you really don't know who he is. He's mysterious. And that's what makes the film scary. We don't
