Fifteen-year old John Cleaver is dangerous, and he knows it. He’s obsessed with serial killers, but really doesn’t want to become one. Terrible impulses constantly tempt him, so for his own sake, and the safety of those around, he lives by rigid rules to keep himself “good” and “normal”. However, when a real monster shows up in his town he has to let his dark side out in order to stop it – but without his rules to keep him in check, he might be more dangerous than the monster he’s trying to kill.

Just watched this movie and I'm in love! It was so amazing and it had a twist that you will not see coming! This goes in one of my top films! It's a horror/thriller more on the thriller side with a horror twist!
You can only rent this right now on iTunes but I will buy it as soon as it comes out! The acting was phenomenal! I am so surprised that an IFC Midnight film could be this good! I hope they adapt more of the books!
Please watch this and support this movie! It deserves higher ratings than what some of these people are claiming. We need more films like this!
I would say the main character is similar to a teenage version of Dexter. The film has some jump scares and some really good tension in it. I really hope you enjoy this as much as I did and will do as I watch it over and over again!
