On the eve of the release of The Snowman, a ridiculous serial-killer movie, comes Hangman, another ridiculous serial-killer movie starring Al Pacino as a cop chasing down a killer who uses… wait for it… Hangman as his clues.
Yes, THAt hangman, the game we’ve all played while we’re waiting at the doctor’s office or taking a long road trip. But this guy, this MADMAN, uses the game to tell Pacino and his partner, Karl Urban, he is gonna KILL AGAIN!
Check out this trailer:
If you want my explanation as to why the serial killer subgenre has struggled for years, ever since Se7en‘s release, look here. Or, watch this trailer again and you will have all the answers you need. Hey, also, here’s this poster, where Al Pacino looks like he just stood up from watching the finished product and has immediate regret.
Where’s Nicolas Cage when you need him?
Hangman also stars Brittany Snow, and features a horrific cover of The Animals’ “House of The Rising Sun.” There’s no news regarding release dates but, I mean, c’mon… this one is headed straight to a VOD platform near you. If you’re going to the theater to see this one that’s on you.
