Today IFC has released the official trailer and one-sheet for The Killer Inside Me, based on Jim Thompson’s novel of the same name.
Based on the classic novel by legendary pulp writer Jim Thompson (called by Stanley Kubrick “the most chilling and believable first-person story of a criminally warped mind I have ever encountered,”) THE KILLER INSIDE ME tells the story of handsome, unassuming small town sheriff’s deputy Lou Ford (Casey Affleck). A quiet charmer of his idyllic West Texas town, Ford has a simple life and a pretty girl (Kate Hudson) to come home to. But when the job brings him face to face with a gorgeous prostitute (Jessica Alba) on the edge of town, Ford’s fragile world cracks – unbridling his own dark urges.

Devin had positive yet mixed feelings on the film based on the Sundance cut (his review) but everyone is remarking on how good Casey Affleck is in his role. The trailer certainly makes it look like he’s got the creepy, emotionless sociopath thing down pat.
The Killer Inside Me will open on June 18th in NYC (and also hit VOD) and expand nationally starting on June 25th.
