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.

An unusual movie with a decent premise. And it does work. The acting was good and the story line was good. It did not surprise me that it was a mystery until the very end. I'm sure that this movie will appeal to a wide audience.

For a film that seems to be very hard to get a hold of, I'm so glad I saw "The Clovehitch Killer" when it came out. Like so many other thrillers, it's an odd one, and one that appeals to the gawky, where the plot drags, and the movie becomes a tedious, slow, downbeat bore. However, when the story doesn't drag, the film is almost perfect. As a film, the story moves along, without too much of a hitch. It's a nice "twist" ending, which I don't think I've ever seen in a film. The acting was okay, and the direction was average. The movie just had too much going on. It's a shame that a great script was not made into a better movie. What saves the film are the photography and music. I felt like I was in the heart of the movie. The photography was stunning, with the music blending with the film, and all the actors gave solid performances. Even though the plot is a bit too complex for my taste, I really like the film, and would recommend it to anybody. 8/10

The Clovehitch Killer is a very good film. However, as with any film it doesn't make a great sense. It is worth watching because of the strong performances by all the cast members, but as a movie it is flawed.

I was very impressed with this movie, very disapointed that there is no one else to give it 10 stars. A very good movie, very bad critic (critics) I guess. Don't get me wrong, I like directors and I don't like movies that were already made, but it was very good. I did like the ending, it was sad but what the. A great director of a great movie.

This movie is a good remake of an old thriller. It's a little bit cliche and predictable but still, its better than most movies of this genre. It's very creepy. I like how the actress play a double role. The police detective (one of the main characters) is very convincing. The writer has a good idea of writing a movie about the world's way of secrets. The way she chooses to develop the story is very brilliant. The story makes you to think about society and what's the meaning of being a secret. My vote is 8. For me, its a nice movie to watch.

This film is interesting from start to finish, it starts of with a weird sonia ville character who has a few scenes with her ex boyfriend who has some additional scenes with some other girl friends. The girl friend who is in the group who get kidnapped is a normal girl and a big fan of Sonja ville who is just being a normal girl and the boyfriend and this girl friend together are all along very funny to watch. There are some scenes with both male and female gang members who are not involved with the kidnap but make fun of them. In this movie, there are many twists, turns and endings that i don't want to give away. For those who have seen this movie, the only thing I have to say is that it is not perfect, it could have been better. The plot and the way they were portraying the characters could have been better, the characters themselves were way too developed, they were over the top to the point where I couldn't relate to them. I also liked the acting of this film because it is different and unique, not only that but the direction is not that good, but still the actors are good. The actress who played the lead role did a good job. It is good to see Sonja Ville in a movie, she is just very good at her job. Overall, the ending of this movie is good, but I think it is too over the top and it could have been better. There is a lot of twists in this film and it is hard to explain, but it is interesting and if you like Sonja ville you should watch this film.

Saw the film the other night and had a great time. There were some great scenes and very chilling ones. My wife and I both felt the need to turn the lights on in our hotel room at night as we were going to be on the opposite side of the country to see this film. It is a very good movie, but it can be watch in a different way. I liked the movie because of the actors, the way the story is told, the direction, and the camera angles. The ending is great and it is kind of a twist at the end, but that could be seen as a problem, because the ending is one of the best ever. I have read the book and am a huge fan of the book and was a little disappointed with the movie. I did not like the movie, but enjoyed it. My husband thought it was good. The bad reviews are more from fans of the book than from those who actually read the book. The book is a book for everyone and I think that is what the movie is. It has its fans and it has its haters. It is not for everyone, but the movie was great and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good horror movie. It is a very good movie and I would give it a 8 out of 10.

A film whose main goal is to shock the viewer with twists and turns, a film that manages to draw the viewer in and keep the viewer wondering what's going to happen next, and yet, the film is completely clear and predictable. OK, the film's "twist" is laughable, but the film is so well executed and suspenseful that the film should be an instant classic. The writing is great. The film's script is compelling and the script is well-written and well-paced. The film is well-acted. The photography is great. And most importantly, the film is one of the best filmed thrillers in the past decade. It does everything right. This film is NOT some boring "dramatic" film that tries to shock the viewer and leaves the viewer confused. The film is purely a thriller with a "dramatic" ending. The film is a thriller with a twist. And what a twist it is! So, even if you can't figure out the twist, it's still a great film. I recommend this film. And if you can't figure out the twist, watch the film again, and see if the twist is clearer and you can figure out the twist. The film has twists in it, so this film is not for everyone. But it's a must-see, and a thriller. This film was so well-written and written so well that it could only be a thriller and not a dramatic film. The film will be a classic in the future, and will be the film to watch for a good decade. I rate this film 8/10. Rating: 8/10.

I remember this movie being on TV when I was younger. I've never seen it since then, but I remembered that it was a real killer mystery. I've always thought this was a great movie. I'm not even sure if I liked it or not. I was just wondering what everyone thought about this movie. Anyways, this movie is a pretty good movie. It's got a lot of stuff going for it. It's interesting because this is an actual serial killer killer that is on the loose. The movie is based on the novel by Hugh Fairbrass, who also wrote the book that made him famous. The story is based on a murder case. The real killer in this case is a psychopathic man who does weird things to young people. The killer also has a lot of people around him who think he's funny. This movie is good, I have to say, but it's not really worth watching.

I'll start with the fact that this movie is entertaining, entertaining enough, entertaining enough. The acting is great and believable. The suspense is very good, as is the atmosphere. There is a sense of mystery in this movie that is worth the price of admission. The ending, of course, is a surprise, but it's well-done. This is a good movie to see on a Sunday afternoon, when you don't have to think too hard about what to watch.

I went into this film with some reservations. I didn't know what to expect. I thought it was going to be a straight up slasher film. Well, I'm glad I didn't listen to the critics and went to see this film. I'm glad I saw this film. I found it to be quite entertaining. The only bad thing about the film was that I thought the characters were not all that likable. I thought the father was too cool and had a nice voice. I thought that the daughter and son were two very stupid people who kept on going on and on about nothing. I thought the daughter was too annoying. She was too entitled and wasn't able to have any control over herself. She also thought that her father was a jerk. I really like the character of Rachel. She is an inspiration to me. I don't know what her father was like, but I can tell you that his personality was very weird. He was very arrogant, very strong, and very very creepy. I was thinking that he was some kind of super villain. I don't think that he was a super villain at all. He was just a very obnoxious, bossy, crazy guy. I liked the film a lot. It's better than a lot of the other slashers out there. The story was good, the acting was great, and the score was great. This movie is a little different from the other slashers out there. It doesn't seem like it's trying to be a horror or slasher film, it's just a very interesting story about a serial killer. It's really a good film and I recommend it to anyone who likes a really good movie.

This is one of the best movie I have seen this year.I was born in 1972, I was born in 1980. I am old enough to remember the days of the X-ray movie in my neighbourhood, I remember the X-ray movies were a major thing in the 70's. I loved all the movies that was made in that era. I really enjoyed the movie.I have also been born in 1985, I remember the same X-ray movies were really popular, the movie is a combination of several movies, one of them is the X-ray movie.The movie has several things in it, the first thing is the "black widow", a woman who kills the people who are involved with her husband and this is done by making the victim walk across a stream to find their killer.I think that the movie is a really good one.This movie contains all kinds of crimes that were really funny.You can find the movie in cinemas, I watched it on DVD.I liked it very much, I recommend you to watch it, you will enjoy the movie.In the movie it is told in the most beautiful way,it really makes you laugh and cry.I think that it is a very good movie.I really recommend you to watch it,you will enjoy the movie.A very good movie.

Clovehitch, who doesn't have the finest delivery, can only muster a poor performance from other actors. The film is a smart thriller, the best of it's genre. It has great ideas, dialogue, and script. It's a must see film, especially for the movie industry. Rating: 8 out of 10

Okay, the acting was top notch and some of the characters were oddly fascinating, but the whole thing felt like a sequence of images rather than an actual narrative. Even the characters were ambiguous in their motivations and the way that the movie ends doesn't make much sense. The idea behind the movie was appealing but as a whole, it felt like a stretch. Still, the performance of William Forsythe was very good and he is a talent to be reckoned with. I would suggest you see the movie, but don't expect a dramatic piece or you will probably be disappointed.

This movie has been mostly ignored by the Academy, because of it's obscurity. But its quality alone should warrant an Oscar. The acting is good. The dialogue is original. And I thought it was entertaining.

I recently saw a film called The Clovehitch Killer which starred Mark Wahlberg, and I really enjoyed it. Mark Wahlberg has the ability to pull off his part in The Clovehitch Killer, he does a good job, and I can't believe that he doesn't get a nomination for his performance in this film. There are many things in this film that are just unbelievable that you wouldn't see coming. One of the things that is unbelievable is the fact that Wahlberg, who has played in some fantastic movies, likes to sing. One scene in the film where Wahlberg is singing a song is in my opinion one of the best scenes in the film. Mark Wahlberg's character is just crazy, he is also an incredible actor, and he does a good job in this film. I really enjoyed the acting in this film, but I really liked the story, it was a really good story. The story in this film is really well written, and I really like the characters that are in the film, especially Mark Wahlberg's character. There are many things in the story that I really liked, such as the fact that the actor that plays Mark Wahlberg's son is really funny. There is a scene that is a little bit strange, I mean if you're not a fan of music you might not like this scene, but it's worth seeing, as it is just amazing. The characters in this film are all really good, especially the voice actors, as they all really do a good job. This is a really good movie, and I think that it is definitely a movie that should have been nominated for an award. I would have liked to see Mark Wahlberg win an award for his performance in this film, and I would also like to see a movie that was nominated for an Oscar. It's just a great movie, and I give it a 7 out of 10.

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
