Owen Whitmore (Sherman) has a sleep disorder and occasionally sleepwalks. After his dreams turn violent, his therapist decides to consult with Dr. Jonas Julian (Perlman), a specialist in sleep disorders and dream analysis. Things take a turn when a missing woman is found dead... in precisely the manner in which Owen described from his dreams.

Owen (Zachary Ray Sherman) is a teenage boy being plagued by vivid nightmares that usually involve random sleepwalks. They always seem to feature a young woman being drowned in a bathtub and then out comes the power-saw. Before too long the murders get closer to home and Owen soon becomes the prime suspect. His usual quack (Svetlana Efremova) brings in a different quack (Ron Perlman) and all of a sudden things start to get messy.

The film does a good job of keeping you suspecting a number of people of committing these gruesome murders. Is Owen the killer? Could it be girlfriend, mother? Or could his real father who is waiting execution for the same type of grizzly killings be getting out of his cell every night to commit the crimes himself?

Obviously the last possibility isn't quite believable but the film does make you wonder about any possibility. The story is at times flawed as is the dialogue but the cast gives it their all including Armand Assante, Ron Perlman and Zachary Ray Sherman who gives a convincing performance as the young man who is questioning his own sanity.

The story is flawed a bit but this is still a pretty entertaining thriller that keeps a nice place and has a number of good twists on the way to the end that keeps the audience engaged. There has been better films than "Killer by Nature" but I have also seen a lot worse so if you like the genre I recommend checking this one out. The clever twists and amazing cast makes this one a pretty entertaining watch.
