    Sadly "The Killer Inside Me", despite its few impressive tensions the movie creates, is your average sadistical porn horror.

    By the treatment from the film, i thought it will be good one.... But it was disappointing.... Its an OK film in the sense that you can sit around most of the time during the movie (at times it gets dull and boring) cz there are on suspense which suppose to be psycho thriller movie! The film doesn't take into so much consideration about the reason why the protagonist is like that except for some flashback shots.... Totally disappointing.... Acting was superb.... I should have given it atleast only for the acting but the story telling is so bad that i want to give it 0.... Jessica alba and kate hudson has done a decent job.... Casey affleck was noteworthy.... P.s. You can follow the story only if you have read the novel before hand.... Otherwise it is hard to understand whats going on, why is it happening.... Etc. Expand

    The Killer Inside Me was offbeat, odd, vulgar, with a pinch of good acting. The storyline was stellar, and the acting was beyond my expectations, but the movie is only good for the first twenty minutes. After Jessica Alba "died" I knew I was in for a slump.

    The Killer Inside Me had the potential to further jumpstart the careers of both Casey Affleck and Kate Hudson; however, the film takes a fine script and turns it into a bland and depressive dark world.

    Thompson's brutality and misogyny are on full display, but it is too slick, there is little suspense or energy, and the whole affair has a curiously embalmed quality.

    A streamlined script might have helped. Curran and Winterbottom lose themselves in the soupy business of union shenanigans, an internal investigation and Lou's intervention in a troubled boy's life, but the added complications -- and the talk, talk, talk they require -- take away from the disquieting core of Thompson's story.

    Winterbottom's adaptation of the novel is spellbinding cinema, with all the atmosphere, technical excellence and expert pacing the British director is known for.
