'Killer Therapy'
(Michael Qeliqi, Elizabeth Keener, Thom Mathews, PJ Soles, Adrienne King, Daeg Faerch, Javon Johnson, Ivy George, et al / DVD / NR / (2018) 2020 / 4Digital Media)

Overview: After a series of escalating violent incidents, Brian is moved from failed therapist to failed therapist, maturing into a young man still unable to escape his anger issues.

When his life eventually falls apart by his own choices, Brian blames his series of failed therapists, embracing his dark nature and taking his revenge on everyone who ever wronged him, one by one, finally understanding that accepting who you are inside can be the best therapy.

DVD Verdict: Brian is a disturbed child with sociopath tendencies dealing with a father who doesn't love him, a mother unconvinced of his violent nature, and a newly adopted sister he believes is there to replace him.

After a series of escalating violent incidents, he is bounced around from failed therapist to failed therapist, maturing into a young man still unable to escape his anger issues.

When his life eventually falls apart by his own choices, Brian blames his series of failed therapists, embracing his dark nature and taking his revenge on everyone who ever wronged him - one by one, finally understanding that accepting who you are inside can be the best therapy.

Featuring a cast that has figuratively died oh-so many horror deaths in the lead up to appearing here in this new 4Digital Media horror/suspense movie, 'Killer Therapy' - including roles in such classics as The Return of The Living Dead, Carrie [1976], Friday the 13th, Friday the 13th Part II, Friday the 13th Part VI, Halloween [1978], and even the more recent Halloween [2007] - you could only hope to the horror Gods that their combined knowledge and perception of what makes a good horror tale work would come to the fore here in this lower market film.

And, by God, they do as from the moment it opens to the moment it closes, there isn't an actor on screen - bit part, spare part, or main - that doesn't give their all in this quite brilliant, bloody and suspenseful new film.

Filled with the aforementioned original Friday the 13th and Halloween cast members, which drew my attention immediately, this film from Barry Jay brings us, well, sure, for all intents and purposes, a tale of a troubled youth aka one akin to Michael Myers, who is bringing his dark side into the light after having been to one too many failed therapist sessions!

There is also a nod to 'The Joker' here, given our lead, Brian Langston's (Michael Qeliqi) passion for daubing white concealer on his face, rounding it off with black eye liner, but no matter how you "see" this film, the way it pulls you in, the way it creates its very own deranged and psychotic imagery, sooner, rather than later, it enables you to forgo those preconceived notions, which in turn enables you to settle in and find where it voluntarily (if not maddeningly) takes you. This is a Widescreen Presentation (2.35:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.

'Killer Therapy' [DVD] is out on VOD, Digital and DVD on September 15th, 2020 via 4Digital Media.
