When I heard the lead character in a voice over state, “…this is the story of how my town Salem lost its m$%f**&n mind,” I knew I was in trouble.
As twisted and perverse as this film was for me, it had relevant elements around real issues like the internet, teen suicide, hacking and a little twinge of ‘American Beauty’ laced in-between the lines.
American Assassination was hands down the most violent, graphically disjointed film I had witnessed in quite some time…I was riveted!!!! All of these attributes were only enhanced by performances with some up and coming talent (Odessa Young, Hari Nef, Suki Waterhouse, Abra and Bella Thorne), as well as, some film veterans like Anika Noni Rose, Bill Skarsgard, Joel McHale and Colman Domingo.
Garnering the biggest deal of the festival of $10 Million with Neon and Born Studios, I promise you that this one will make you think twice before allowing your kids to have a sleep over…
