Meet Ken Boyd: small-town loner and comic-book nerd, making ends meet by pushing a broom around the local ice-cream parlour. Fresh out of the loony bin, where he spent years recovering from the horrific torture he suffered at the hands of the high school basketball jocks, Ken (Kevin Corrigan) wants nothing more than to just be left alone. But when the lovely Stephanie (Lucy Davis) comes into Ken's life and he is reunited with his estranged, 11 year old daughter Amy (Ariel Gade), things finally seem to be looking up. Even his constantly disappointed mother Ruth (Karen Black) and the town Sheriff (Barry Bostwick) start to treat him with a little more respect. That is, until those very same jocks that Ken deems responsible for his ruined life start turning up dead...

Low budget US 'comedy horror' / slasher movie / whodunnit. Someone is bumping off old high school baseball team of recently released patient from a mental hospital. Err, that's it.
For the first 10 minutes or so I sat thinking: this is awful, I really can't watch any more of this USAnian so-called 'humor'. But it got better - and better. This really is a well acted, humorous film which touches upon bullying, family life and an assortment of unexpected subjects. And for the horror fans it has the required severed heads, slit throats, gushing blood etc.
There are some excellent actors here including Karen Black and Barry Bostwick. Despite the title and a few grisly bits it really isn't a horror film. There's a bit too much f-ing and blinding for my taste but try it - you might enjoy it. 3/5 stars.
