At first glance, Ken Boyd may seem like an average comic enthusiast, living with his mother and working to make ends meet as an underpaid, underappreciated ice cream parlor attendant. But Ken has a dirty little secret: he fantasizes about killing people. After being released from a stay in the loony bin, for severe mental trauma suffered when he was beaten and tortured by a gang of high school thugs, Ken's repressed anger suddenly reaches a boiling point. With gleeful enthusiasm Ken hunts down his tormentors, one by one, and exacts his bloody revenge.

The above synopsis is about all you need to know going in, knowing more about the plot would only ruin the film. The story is pretty basic, Ken has these flashbacks about the time he was tied to a chair and beaten by students at his school and it causes some anger issues to say the least. Ken also gets a surprise visit from his daughter who is cute, smart and the polar opposite of her dad. When people start getting murdered and the local Sheriff zooms in on Ken as the prime suspect but there's a problem, he's also dating Ken's mom.

"Some Guy Who Kills People" is a unique horror in that it combines plenty of humor as well making it one of more enjoyable film's in it's genre to come out in some time. This is an intelligent film with lots of witty and clever dialogue that had me laughing the entire time. There's also a major twist late in the film which is the reason I said the little you know about the film the better. It's a twist a didn't see coming till the last minute and it really provided for a great ending.

Another reason the film was so much fun was it's cast, Kevin Corrigan is perfect as Ken and Karen Black is her usual amazing self as his over-bearing mother. But for me the real star of the film was Barry Bostwick as the Sheriff, he stole every scene he was in with his amazing comic ability. I also have to give a lot of credit to Writer, Ryan A. Levin and to Director, Jack Perez who did a terrific job mixing the two genres into a very entertaining film. Available on DVD, the disc comes with Special Features that include:

Director, Writer/Producer Commentary

Short Film, "The Fifth," That Inspired The Feature

'Making Of' Featurette

I highly recommend this little gem to fan's of both comedy and horror and for those that don't normally have the stomach for horror I can tell you the film is not that gory so do yourself a favor and check this one out.
