The Killer Inside Me - Movie Synopsis & Plot
From director Michael Winterbotton comes "The Killer Inside Me" which has electrified audiences at the Sundance, Berlin and Tribeca Film Festivals. Based on the classic novel by legendary pulp writer Jim Thompson, "The Killer Inside Me" tells the story of handsome, unassuming small town sheriff's deputy Lou Ford (Casey Affleck). A quiet charmer of his idyllic West Texas town, Ford has a simple life and a pretty girl (Kate Hudson) to come home to. But when the job brings him face to face with a gorgeous prostitute (Jessica Alba) on the edge of town, Ford's fragile world cracks – unbridling his own dark urges. In "The Killer Inside Me's" blacker–than–noir universe, nothing is ever what it seems. From the acclaimed director of "A Mighty Heart" and "24 Hour Party People," "The Killer Inside Me" is a thrill–ride that Stanley Kubrick called "the most chilling and believable first–person story of a criminally warped mind I have ever encountered."
