KILLER CONCEPT (2021) Review and overview of comedy horror


Killer Concept is a 2021 American comedy horror film about three creatives writing a screenplay chronicling a string of murders in their town. However. one of the three may be closer to the story than the others realise.

Directed by Glenn Payne (Driven) from a screenplay written by and co-starring Casey Dillard. The Dead Leaf Productions movie also stars Cody Bishop and Coley Bryant.


Mark is at first reluctant when aspiring producer Seth and writer Holly want him to help them make a movie about a local serial killer: after all, they might figure out that he is behind them, but figures it could be interesting.

However when rivalries, crushes, and outside influence begin to cloud his mind the harder it is to tell if he’s in his own story or theirs. And who knows what direction the story will go in next?


“Overall Killer Concept is an enjoyable darkly humorous look at both making movies and killing people. Don’t expect a lot in the way of actual horror and enjoy the laughs. It’s just a shame the film stumbles a bit at the end, but it’s still worth seeing.” Voices from the Balcony
