Feels like Napolean Dynamite goes psycho killer. As this lead character has the same oddball, mentally-slow awkwardness. The film contains the appropriate lurid dialogue ear, ugly mug or sexual vixen casting, and awkwardness in its sexualized situations. Yet, the murderous arc of the character too-nonchalantly plays off the fact that he is slow-witted, denying it a proper emotional/dramatic arc. It's too one-note.
