Once upon a time, the James Brothers, Odessa (Dave Larsen) and Kyle (David Gunn, VAMPIRE JOURNALS), murdered their parents in their own beds. Now they've escaped from Death Row and are on the run on a stormy night, looking for a place to hide out. They invade the home of the Ryans, who seem like a typical American family and should be easy to control. But there's something not quite right about this brood--the women seem more attracted than frightened by these notorious murderers in their house, and Dad (C.T. Miller) has secrets of his own. Things get violently out of hand as the James boys find the night not going as they expected...and there are even more surprises waiting in the basement! The directorial debut of modern cult-favorite filmmaker Mike Mendez (BIG ASS SPIDER!, THE CONVENT), KILLERS is a highly stylized crime/horror hybrid that also puts a darkly satiric spin on America's obsession with violent perpetrators. After a brutal, hypnotic opening set to Iron Butterfly's "In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida," the script by lead actor Larsen and Mendez begins as a traditional hostage drama, before the twisted nature of the James brothers' "hosts" starts to reveal itself. It all leads to eruptions of gunfire and gore, and a shocking finale that was toned down in previous releases; now it can be seen in its full uncut glory in the unrated director's cut, available for the first time on disc in high-definition!
