November 15, 2018
The Clovehitch Killer is the biggest and best surprise so far in 2018. Intelligent, engrossing, and chilling.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
November 15, 2018
An excellent McDermott embodies Don with just enough strangeness to keep audiences from knowing precisely where The Clovehitch Killer is heading.

What occurs in this movie isn't a means to expose those "accomplices in silence" as wrong, though. No, The Clovehitch Killer seems to be condoning them.

McDermott is admirably unsettling, and Luke McCoubrey's artfully sterile cinematography adds an air of suffocating wholesomeness that can make you squirm.

This is a really slow burn...too slow, in fact.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
November 14, 2018
First-time feature director Duncan Skiles brings some spooky atmosphere to a smart script by Christopher Ford.
November 13, 2018
McDermott's matter-of-factness during increasingly disturbing behavior is skin crawling, made all the more eerie set in Skiles's depiction of small town virtue.

The Clovehitch Killer is one of the best horror films to come out this year. It's intelligent and subversive, and it captures the banality of small-town life perfectly.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10

It's not only a realistic portrait of a conservative Middle America but a devastating portrayal of what happens when a family goes murderously awry.

Skiles' direction and Plummer's performance, plus the focus on darkness permeating a small town suburbia, lends the film a My Friend Dahmer-esque vibe that will undoubtedly attract a sizeable following

October 1, 2018
By The Clovehitch Killer's tragic finale, we're able to forgive any sort of experimental misfires since it sticks the landing so well.
September 27, 2018
Offers an intriguing perspective on the darker side of American values, but lacks the conviction to entirely expose the cultural contradictions that often enable compulsive murderers.
September 27, 2018
This atypical serial-killer thriller distinguishes itself in resisting thrills - let alone any actual violence - till well past its halfway point...
