As I reviewed THE MUSIC KILLER, I knew that somewhere lurking in the shadows, Hitchcock, Serling and King were snickering at me as I peered up at the screen from beneath a theatre seat. Just you wait! The portrayal of The Music Killer by Justin Melick will have you crying for your mommy......
The Story Line....
According to Harlan Cross(The Killer), he didn't murder his wife, he simply corrected the mistake she had made. It seems that Mrs. Cross had committed sin with another man, a sin which had resulted in her being with child, a boy as it were. In his defense, Harlan politely explained to the judge that he had given Mrs. Cross every opportunity to repent of her wrong doing. He was perfectly willing to forgive her indiscretion if she would dispose of the evidence which she refused to do. At that point, his duty as he saw it, was to rectify the matter by eliminating Mrs. Cross.
For six years Harlan practiced being the perfect patient at the Institute for the Criminally Insane. His proud doctor proclaimed Harlan to be the foremost example of institutional rehabilitation.
Meanwhile, Bobby Soul, a drugged out rock & soul guitarist was being helped back into the land of the living by a kindly Pastor. One day while picking guitar in front of the church, a lost and damaged boy wanders into the yard. Bobby discovers that the boy dreams of being a great guitarist. Bobby takes the lad under his wing as it were then introduces the boy to the Pastor, who readily becomes the boy's foster father.
The years of rehabilitation at the Institute had only reinforced Harlan's commitment to correct mistakes. Not his, the ones other people make. His primary agenda was to find and correct the mistake his wife had produced with that..other man. And those who would stand in his way are also transgressors and must therefore be corrected.
In movie THE MUSIC KILLER, Harlan is apparently shot to death by a county constable. During his correction spree, Harlan has killed a mother of two whose car he stole, his own mother, the foster father of the lost and wayward boy and now seeks to kill the boy himself. Thank God, Harlan is finally dead.
The body of The Music Killer mysteriously disappeared and to date, has not been located. I fear that Harlan's commitment to correct his dearly departed wife's mistake supercedes death and the grave. For that reason, I fear for my own life if I should reveal to you anymore than I already have.
THE MUSIC KILLER is a Dianne Partain Movie, a Luke's Cabbage Store Production. I can tell you about the boy in the movie. The "boy" now fourteen, plays guitar in the Luke's Cabbage Store Band. His name is Nick. When I told him that the movie had made me start to look over my shoulder, he smiled slightly and said. "You should"......YIKES!!!
