Reviews:

” …Killers Anonymous isn’t strong with twists, growing more convoluted, not mischievous, as it unfolds. Performances are less disciplined as well, making growing hostilities difficult to enjoy, as most of the cast is engaged in some type of overacting gamesmanship. There’s little momentum to the endeavor, which transforms into a Tarantino-esque collision of bad attitudes and drawn weapons.” Blu-ray.com

” …Killers Anonymous just doesn’t make sense as a throwback to MTV-friendly sensibilities. It’s also not inventive, funny, or energetic enough to warrant its creators’ vague ideas about deceiving looks, moral relativism, and, uh, girl power? I couldn’t even coast on this movie’s slick surface given how thin its plot and characterizations are.” RogerEbert.com 

“The look-at-me stylistic flairs constantly in your face work all too hard in trying to keep this a kind of weird modern fantasy, and while sometimes that has its favors, there is no escaping a contrivance to it that saps some of the potential drama. There’s some fun with a few of the characters and if you can settle into the confinement of the mostly one-setting approach, it has some good moments.” That Moment In
