    I Am Not a Serial Killer

    ★★★★

    I Am Not a Serial Killer isn't an especially original film-- it shares its "maladjusted teenager contemplates murder" focus with a multitude of other movies-- Thoroughbreds, Stoker, et cetera. The film's sort-of twist (which is visible almost from the beginning if you pay attention) leads to some interesting visuals but certainly doesn't qualify the movie as especially innovative.

    ★★★

    This movie never fucking stops, for better or for worse. Everyone shouts and talks quickly, all the while racing around and getting into drug-and-alcohol-fueled shenanigans. Two brothers (Zac Efron and Adam DeVine) have a rightly-earned reputation for ruining every family party with the aforementioned shenanigans, so their parents insist that the pair bring dates to calm them down. This shows a lack of insight on the part of the parents, who should understand that young hellraisers attract enablers at least…
