We’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled music programming today in favor of something a little different. From Dark Knites Entertainment, we were recently introduced (via Bongo Boy Records) to the feature film The Covid Killer. Directed by industry veteran Jeff Knite, this indie flick aims to bring you an all too familiar setting for the next big horror film, telling the story of a serial killer on the loose during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Following Detective Will Jordan (Mike Benz), we go on the hunt for the vicious serial killer terrorizing NYC in what is already a time of crisis. Wearing a mask as mandated by the state, the killer is able to obscure his identity as he executes his unwilling victims in varying horrifying fashions. Incorporating real-world events into the story, The Covid Killer seems to capture a moment in time with its storyline, preserving the unforgettable elements of these past few years alongside a fast-paced, hair-raising journey through attempted justice. The director keeps the viewer on their toes with a number of unexpected twists and turns that will keep your eyes glued to the screen throughout.
Gripping from start to finish, The Covid Killer is not for the faint of heart. Steeped deeply in the slasher genre and reminiscent of your classic ’80s horror flicks, The Covid Killer is full of suspense, gore, and high-stakes action that genre enthusiasts will no doubt enjoy. High points in this film include its strong female characters and representation, a great soundtrack that complements the plot and enhances the atmosphere, and an endlessly relatable setting that will resonate with anyone who’s living through these pandemic years.
If you like a dose of reality alongside some edge-of-your-seat entertainment, The Covid Killer is well worth the watch. Fans of quality indie horror flicks would be remiss not to rent or buy this unsettling cinematic adventure below!
