Horror-On-Sea Film Festival 2020: The Hart-Break Killer 2019

The Hart-Break Killer is a 2019 thriller written and directed by Sean Donohue. It stars Eight The Chosen One, Ashley Lynn Caputo, Anthony Wayne, Joe Makowski, ‘Sushii’ Xhyette Holder, James Knowlton, Katie McKinley, and Bob Glazier. A lonely loser on the verge of insanity looks for love in all the wrong places. This was one odd and very unusual film. It’s not actually a horror movie, but rather a thriller with the word killer in the title – even though there were no deaths. It’s the complete opposite of what we’ve come to expect from director Sean Donohue. There’s absolutely no blood, gore or killing in this. Instead, it’s a slow psychological mind-bender about a man gradually losing his sanity as his life begins to unravel around him. Eight the Chosen One was fantastic in a triple performance, including the lead role of Robert Hart. He was a little over the top at times, yet really sold the character. He was extremely creepy. I would have loved to have seen some blood and gore accompany the amazing acting, however, the film was an entertaining, sleazy ride nonetheless. The music was terrific and the costumes and makeup were awesome. The Hart-Break Killer is a hilarious head fuck. It’s warped and twisted and one seriously wicked time. If you’re looking for something different, search this one out. It’s a certifiable spiral into madness, and viciously fun.
