Blu-ray Review: KILLERS ANONYMOUS

KILLERS ANONYMOUS was directed by Martin Owen from a screenplay he co-wrote with Seth Johnson and Elizabeth Morris and stars Gary Oldman, Jessica Alba, Tommy Flanagan, Rhyon Nicole Brown, MyAnna Buring, Michael Socha, Tim McInnerny, Sam Hazeldine and Suki Waterhouse.

Tensions mount at Killers Anonymous, a support group for killers, as the members of the group try to unravel a mystery: Which one of them is responsible for the assassination attempt on a U.S. senator that has the police in the city on high alert?

This serial killer thriller with a dark sense of humor follows a group of serial assassins who meet up for their latest meeting where they talk about their last weak moment. Each one shares stories because it helps them vent. It’s a support group full of eccentric characters sharing their stories and on the outside looking in is a counselor/sponsor who’s keeping a close eye on what goes down at this particular meeting.

In the background is an assassination attempt on a U.S. Senator who also happens to have a stange connection to this group. There’s also this one new member who might be up to no good. This weird meeting gets even weirder because it becomes a game of who’s who and who can you trust with ample amounts of blood. In the end, every member reveals who they really are and they all get what’s coming to them as the counselor/sponsor watches on from a safe distance.

The packaging comes with a slipcover/o-card. The front features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes movie details, more artwork and list of special features. The Blu-ray disc features the movie logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this high-definition release were crisp and clear. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, Killers Anonymous is a movie that I had been looking forward to checking out but unfortunately it ended up being a mediocre watch at best. The bad thing is that it had a lot of potential because the ensemble cast was great and the plot was really interesting. There is a little twist to the story but it’s still not enough to salvage the movie. So, I have to blame it on the execution here. I mean, all we get is this group of eccentric killers sitting around in this confined setting talking about their last weak moment. Weak moment meaning the last time they murdered someone. Unfortunately, Gary Oldman and Jessica Alba are limited in screen their screen time, especially Alba who pretty much only has a cameo in the movie. All in all, I’d say Killers Anonymous is worthy enough of a one time watch or put it on for some killer-filler time while you’re doing something else. Killers Anonymous will be available on Blu-ray (plus Digital) on August 27th.
