The Killer Inside Me is the latest film from Michael Winterbottom and since its screening at Sundance it has picked up a lot of criticism for its violent themes. The film is based on a book of the same name by Jim Thompson and stars Casey Affleck in the title role.

The film looks like it might be really interesting and I have a lot of faith in Michael Winterbottom to bring depth to this lurid noir tale.

The film is released in the UK of June the 4th and you can check out the synopsis and trailer below.

Based on the novel by legendary pulp writer Jim Thompson, Michael Winterbottom’s THE KILLER INSIDE ME tells the story of handsome, charming, unassuming small town sheriff’s deputy Lou Ford.

Lou has a bunch of problems. Woman problems. Law enforcement problems. An ever-growing pile of murder victims in his West Texas jurisdiction. And the fact he’s a sadist, a psychopath, a killer. Suspicion begins to fall on Lou, and it’s only a matter of time before he runs out of alibis. But in Thompson’s savage, bleak, blacker than noir universe nothing is ever what it seems, and it turns out that the investigators pursuing him might have a secret of their own.
