The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) – Movie Review
Plot: 65 years after a masked serial killer terrorized the small town of Texarkana, the so-called ‘moonlight murders’ begin again. Is it a copycat or something even more sinister? A lonely high school girl, with dark secrets of her own, may be the key to catching him.
Review: Based on the true serial killings known as the Texarkana Moonlight Murders of 1946, The Town that Dreaded Sundown (2014) is the screen adaptation of the real murders told by 1976’s horror film The Town that Dreaded Sundown.
Addison Timlin plays Jami. She and her date decide to leave the drive in movie and venture off for more privacy, when they are brutally attacked by the same suspected killer that plagued the town in the 40’s. When it is evident a serial killer is once again threatening the people of Texarkana the Texas Rangers once again join the search for the identity of the perpetrator.
But will they find their killer before he hunts them all down?
Without going into details, I will only say that things are not as they seem, as this copy-cat killer hunts down his prey one by one.
Despite there being quite a number if similarities to the Scream movie franchise, this was a movie I did find compelling and will leave you wondering til the final reveal who the Slasher really is. Suspenseful and riveting.
Verdict: He slices, he dices…
My Rating: 5 out of 10
