Seemingly slasher flick falls flat with bad acting and weak storyline
Another weak entry into the trash B-movie's thriller category. Killer Weekend praises from an OK synopsis, but from the start, you know you are in for some trash.
A sugar baby, who happens to be a serial killer, gets acquainted with a not-so-much sugar daddy, who also happens to be a serial killer. Sounds like an OK plot for a slasher flick, but it gets to be very shallow and poor; nothing is really explored deeply.
The acting is terrible, of course, nothing new here. I guess what bothers me the most are two main things: those inner monologues, which are just plain stupid, and the beginning, which tries to set the tone of this movie as some sort of criticism towards dating apps and sex as a business. I don't know. It tries to be serious, but the overall plot just falls flat.
With only 83 minutes of screen time (thank God!), the ending was more than expected and also rather mediocre. It tries to make some sense of everything, but it's just so abrupt and weak that it's not effective at all.
I would not recommend this to anyone, even trash movie fans (like myself). This is one movie one should decide to watch by oneself.
