Some Guy Who Kills People (2011)
When the bullies who tormented him in high school start turning up dead, suspicion starts to lean towards Ken, especially since he's just out of the loony bin and can't account for his whereabouts during the times of the murders. To complicate matters, the Sheriff is dating Ken's mother and is often at the table for breakfast and dinner. Plus Ken's an artist whose work consists of mostly violent drawings, which are cartoonish in nature.
I liked this one. Barry Bostwick is fantastic as the Sheriff, and was my favorite part of the film. He's got some great lines and played it perfect for the laughs. The other actors also do a great job in their roles. The dark humor works well, while Ken Corrigan's turn from depressed loner to an awkward father trying to bond with a pre-teen daughter is very effective. You'd think that wouldn't be a great part of a horror movie, but the characters and writing make it work.
