Many years ago I was given an ARC of Dan Wells’s first novel for a blurb and described it as “un-put-downable.” The film, unfortunately, is not so well paced. The setup: small-town teenager John Wayne Cleaver knows he has all the makings of a serial killer and organizes his life to avoid opportunities to act on his impulses. But then a serial killer starts murdering people in his town. Max Records’s portrayal of John is haunting. It’s a well-done adaptation of an intriguing story. Just be patient.
