Storyline

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. Written by Andrew Lauer

Very discreet slow thriller cooked on low heat.
23 November 2018 | by MplusA92See all my reviews

The movie starts with a memorial event about victims who got killed by The Clovehitch Killer, a voice of narrator started to tell us about the story but then it disappeared for the rest of the movie.

The events follow to discover the life of a family who lives peacefully, then the son discovers a clue that leads him to investigate the crimes of The Clovehitch Killer.

The main suspense arises from knowing the killer in first hour of the movie, and then the suspense continues to know how our main characters will deal with the real killer.

Everything in this movie is discreet, even the killer, you may get the feeling that he already did horrible crimes but you see none, this can be a good thing for people who hate bloody wild movies.

The events are slow and can be boring in some parts, even in the most crucial situations, you will not be motionally involved, as the rhythm is really steady without real excitement.

The characters are well written, background to everyone is enough, and most of their reactions were suitable to the theme of the movie.

The plot is good, everything is explained in a good way. The music is not really felt and it didn't have special identity.

Finally, it's an average drama thriller, very comparable to "The Stepfather", but much less tense than it. You can feel bored easily if you are not excited enough to know the fate of the killer.
