Born to Kill (2017)

2017 | UK | Kate Ashfield & Tracey Malone | ★★★★

Kate Ashfield and Tracey Malone's stylish and gripping Born to Kill is a genuinely disturbing yet surprisingly sympathetic portrait of a budding serial killer (the remarkable Jack Rowan), featuring strong production values, insightful scripting, and excellent performances.


"This edgy, cinematic drama is a haunting exploration of the mind of a 16-year-old boy on the brink of adulthood and of the fears of his single mother who's keeping a traumatic secret from him. Sam is embarking on his first romance with fellow teenager Chrissy, who's moved to the area with her grief stricken father. But things are about to take a much darker turn. Beneath the surface of his charismatic persona, Sam is experiencing more than the usual teenage angst - a psychopathic urge to kill. His family and friends have no idea what he is capable of. Only his victims know the chilling truth. And they're not talking any more." 2entertain
