The Killing Jar

Time Out says

1 out of 5 stars

Spooked by a radio announcement that an entire family was executed in a nearby town, the employees and patrons of a greasy spoon in Nowheresville, USA, believe they’re next when a leather-jacketed sociopath (Madsen) holds them hostage for kicks. There’s a ridiculous twist—one of the victims is also a homicidal nutjob (!)—made obvious long before the reveal. Mark Young’s bargain-basement thriller is as witless as the captor’s motive; to paraphrase another well-dressed Madsen psycho, this little doggie barks, but it has no bite.—Aaron Hillis
