You wouldn’t like him when he’s mad.
On the surface, the small-town deputy sheriff played by Casey Affleck is a force for good.
But that surface layer is paper-thin.
Underneath it lies the rotten heart of a man who finds his only release through violence.
Anyone who gets in his way is greeted with a dose of brutality, as he lies, cheats, steals, blackmails, and kills his way through each day.
Based on a hardboiled ’50s book by Jim Thompson, Killer hits like a sledgehammer.
It’s a good ol’ slice of American sleaze and vice, served up ever so nice.
