John Wayne Cleaver is dangerous and he knows it. He is 16 and works at the family mortuary. John is obsessed with serial killers but really doesn’t want to become one. So for his own sake and the safety of those around him he lives by rigid rules to keep himself “good” and “normal”. When somebody starts murdering people in John’s town, he has to investigate and risk letting his own dark side out in order to stop the killer. As the icy winter tightens its grip on the community a deadly supernatural game of cat and mouse ensues...

I Am Not A Serial Killer manages to balance the horror of a serial killer on the loose in a small town and a dark coming-of-age drama about one very troubled teen. Featuring wonderful performances from Max Records and Christopher Lloyd and very effective use of 16mm photography, I Am Not a Serial Killer is all light and dark rolled into one very neat package.
