Jack Perez, 2011, USA, 97 mins
Toronto Premiere, One Screening Only
Sunday, Oct 23 2011, 1.30pm, Toronto Underground Cinema
$13, Age 19+
From executive producer John Landis (AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) comes a hysterical cult horror comedy about a serial killer and the inept police officers trying to track him down. Stars Kevin Corrigan, Karen Black and Barry Bostwick.
“A sharp little genre-blender that somehow manages to deliver character-based comedy amidst a mild pile of carnage.”
“Perfectly mixes splattery goodness and hilarious character interactions… violent gore with light-hearted family moments makes for a very unique comedy that you aren’t likely to get anywhere else.”
“A double scoop of gruesome delight!”

This Film’s Screening at Toronto After Dark had MANY REVIEWS, read them here.
Who can resist a title like that! The ‘guy’ in question is none other than Kevin Corrigan (PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, FRINGE), one of those actors you know from so many fantastic smaller roles, now thankfully put in the spotlight as Ken Boyd, a mope of a man recently released from an institution after being mercilessly tormented in high school. His new life isn’t exactly stellar either, as he suffers the ridicule of his own mother (Karen Black), works a thankless job, and discovers that he has a pre-teen daughter. On the bright side, his high school bullies are being violently dispatched with gusto one by one, and he’s met a lovely girl (Lucy Davis from SHAUN OF THE DEAD) willing to take a chance on him. Executive produced by John Landis, who knows a thing or two about horror comedies, SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE is a quirky black comedy in the truest sense of the word, filled with surprisingly operatic displays of bloody carnage, and a hilarious turn by Barry Bostwick (THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW) as The Sheriff.
