Lou Ford (Stacy Keach) is the sheriff of a small midwestern town. Abusive to suspects, his demeanor disguises a walking time bomb of hidden evil ready to explode into a psychotic rage. As Lou snaps and threatens to take the town over the edge with him, only his friend Susan (Joyce Lakeland) can save him. THE KILLER INSIDE ME is a striking peek into small town madness. Director Michael Winner combines maddening flashbacks with tight and jumpy shots, to create an eerie, claustrophobic atmosphere. The disturbing ending make THE KILLER INSIDE ME a thought provoking, unforgettable film.
