This feature doesn't have much up its sleeve other than low-budget gore, pointless structural zig-zagging, and trite, overwritten cleverness.
A blood-soaked American recreation of a summer camp slaughter - first to arrive adult counsellors only - that hits all the genre's marks even as it drily sends up the masked killer, his archetypal victims, and harried target.
Probably better than any movie adapted from a string of tweets ever should be.
You Might Be the Killer can't quite match the greatness of Cabin in the Woods or the heart of The Final Girls, but it's a solid if slight piece of slasher comedy that's made with love, for the people who love the genre.
Anyone who has seen a few horror films will most likely feel talked down to by some of the jokes in the film.
...a progressively repetitive midsection that highlights the decidedly one-note bent of the movie's storyline...
You could have made a movie about the genuine tragedy of a man realizing he's become an abuser (you could have made a comedy about that!), and instead you totally made a movie about how a man's violence is a woman's fault.
This isn't challenging filmmaking, but for what it is - a shared social-media joke turned into a shared cultural joke - it's a pretty diverting way for horror fans to spend about 90 minutes.
You Might Be the Killer isn't perfect by any stretch, but it'll do the trick if you're looking for some lighthearted slasher fun.
Twitter inspired films might just be a new ground for hive brainstorming and vetting ideas. If both YOU MIGHT BE THE KILLER and TUSK are indicative of what can be brought together through this platform, then I say keep it up.
A (very) slight diversion for casual horror fans.
The film's methodical deconstruction of slasher tropes quickly proves mechanical.
