THE CLOVEHITCH KILLER
"A picture-perfect family is shattered when the work of a serial killer hits too close to home."
THE CLOVEHITCH KILLER is an American thriller film loosely based on serial killer Dennis Rader directed by Duncan Skiles and written by Christopher Ford. It stars Dylan McDermott, Charlie Plummer, Samantha Mathis, and Madisen Beaty.
Dylan McDermott has proven himself to be an amazing actor. Recently he has been involved in independent projects that truly test those skills. THE CLOVEHITCH KILLER is one of those that cleaned up at Sundance and for good reason. It is an artistic yet realistic look at learning that the good God loving man that heads your family may have some demons inside lacking exercise. THE CLOVEHITCH KILLER isn't the first film to explore urban life with a serial killer on the loose, nor is it the last one on this list. But it does examine the subject much closer up than most and reminds us that the least likely of us are most likely.
