In his sophomore directorial work, Jay Baruchel stars in this film about comic book creator Todd Walkley (Jesse Williams) who becomes popular due to his R-rated comics. His inspiration is from a real-life serial killer who committed gruesome acts of violence two decades ago. When he, his girlfriend Kathy (Jordana Brewster), and producer Ezra (Baruchel) travel back to the killer’s town, they discover new crimes being committed recently. But what’s scarier is how the new crimes look exactly like the scenes Todd drew in his comics. Based on the comics created by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray.~Olivia Cantor
I didn't know this was based on a graphic novel until I saw the credits. The guys who wrote the comic worked on Jonah Hex and other comics I've read over the years. They never disappointed me. The movie was interesting and took to comic roots. Definitely the usual slasher, but also tries to be more than it is.
I knew there was more to Jay Baruchel than meets the eye! This Shudder movie really took me on one heck of a ride! It is bloody, interesting, bloody, hilarious, and bloody! This was definitely not a mainstream title but should be recognized. Jay did an amazing job and should be celebrated! This was an incredible horror movie and I really hope Jay makes more.
Who knew the guy from She's outta your league, and the comedic side kick in a dozen more. Not only could write and direct a comedy like The Goon. But could direct the heck out of an awesome horror movie. RAOV, brings the gore, suspense. AND a movie where Jordana Brewster does drive a car or just looks overall concerned. She finally goes back to her horror roots and that she's more than a pretty face. Excellent flick!
