The movie is just too long. The story was interesting but by the time it got to the heart of what was going on, I just didn't care and ready for it to be over. It's sort of Lynchian in that a lot is going on and you really have to pay attention but it wasn't engaging enough for me. Sometimes with indy films the acting and directing aren't up to standard, this isn't the case with Dead Billy the acting and directing were really good. I enjoyed Lauren Myers very much, which is why I gave the film a 6.
