The Clovehitch Killer Reviews
A seemingly ideal family living in a quiet little town didn't seem to be the perfect unit a boy was made to believe. This after discovering what seemed to be a nasty little secret of his father. Though quite predictable, the movie was brilliantly relayed in a nonlinear narrative.
For some critics, the fact that the script doesn't dabble in symbolism or in a deconstruction of American society is a lost opportunity. I think it was the ideal decision.
This is, in principle, a piece of entertainment based on a slow-burn, brilliantly constructed suspense. The debate will come later, for those interested. And that's what a truly good work of fiction should do.
The Cloverhitch Killer does a good job of utilizing the unsettling feeling of secrecy and fear, I wanted more out of it but that's just me, credit where credit do and this film earned its credit.
... to keep the Clovehitch Killer a secret.
