HASH(0x9c926204) out of 5 stars Interesting, movie that never quite gels. June 27 2009

KatieBird: Certifiable Crazy Person (Justin Paul Ritter, 2005)

Corman film factory graduate Justin Paul Ritter presents his first movie, and for someone who was involved with some of Corman's worst recent offerings (including the Black Scorpion TV show), his managing to stay away from the horrible scripts, unintentional humor, and awful acting that characterized so much of his second-unit work is pretty amazing. In fact, that this movie is anything other than horrendous is pretty much reason to rejoice. It's not a great film by any means, but given his background, it does presage great things for Mr. Ritter in the future (and, four years after KatieBird, Ritter is set to release two new films in 2009; I'm looking forward to them).

The title character in this film (Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman's Helene Udy) lives up to her subtitle; in the present-day scenes we see, KatieBird has brought her psychiatrist and would-be suitor (Point Blank's Todd Gordon) back to her place, where she slowly tortures him while telling him the story of her life (the character is played in flashback by Nicole Jarvis, in her first film role, as a child, and Rufus' Taylor Dooley as a teen), giving us a look at how her father, played by Into the Arms of Strangers' Lee Perkins (who, actually, is a professional race car driver who acts on the side), shaped her into the psychotic she is today.

Okay, so everyone and his mom had complained about the split-screen effect that's vastly overused in this movie. But you know what? Compared to Timecode, probably the most famous movie to use the technique, this is a triumph. Yeah, I grant you, it still kind of sucks, but it's done so much better here than I've ever seen it before. Part of this is because the use of the split-screen technique has nothing, really to do with what's actually going on onscreen. Most of the time it's simply a stylistic choice, rather than being used to show multiple storylines at once. It wasn't an absolute necessity to try and focus on multiple storylines, so it didn't really matter which screen I watched, I was still getting what I needed to know about the plot.

The script is solid, and there's some darned fine acting here (Udy, is excellent, and some mention should be made of Jun Hee Lee as a teen KatieBird's crush who comes to a very bad end), and it's interesting to see a film that's not a horror movie get the gore treatment. It seems most people who have watched this are unable to get by the split-screen thing; if you can, there's a lot to like with this one. ***

HASH(0x9c83f36c) out of 5 stars Oh My God This Movie is Insane! March 16 2006
By Mela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I saw a bunch of great reviews for this movie all over the web and read about it in Fangoria and was very curious to check it out. This movie is awesome! If you like serial killer movies, if you like lots of gore that will make you cringe (including some teeth pulling scenes that are way more intense than Marathon Man...man, it'll be a long time before I go to a dentist) but most importantly if you like movies with substance, a plot and great cinematography this is the movie for you. Most horror movies these days are so formulaic - this one really is different. A truly unique, yet completely insance, film. I can't wait for the sequel!

KatieBird is your just your average everyday serial killer, as her psychologist soon finds out while delving deep into her demented past! Justin Paul Ritter's directorial debut shows no shortage in style or ambition, although it is severely lacking in character, mood, and in the overall performances. Ritter immediately jumps in to a split-screen format that he will use throughout the duration of the film, but De Palma he is not. The technique is never properly applied to better our understanding of the characters or to tell a multi-layered story. Instead, it is mainly used to show the same repeated action from multiple perspectives. This would make sense if KatieBird were, perhaps, schizophrenic? The panels only serves as an ongoing distraction, and frequently remind the viewer that they are watching a movie. Ritter's attempt to create a serious character drama is foiled by his two lead actresses, playing the older and younger versions of KatieBird. Helene Udy and Taylor M. Dooley are impossible to believe in the role, and make it difficult not to laugh at their quirky, over-the-top performances. The basic premise and groundwork in KATIEBIRD could have served as a functional serial killer picture had Ritter taken a much more subtle approach, but there is far too much working against the film to make it enjoyable on any level.

HASH(0x9c4fef6c) out of 5 stars An Excellent Horror Film In Every Aspect ! May 30 2006
By creatureart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
From the camera work,story,acting,visually & (wow!)the music Justin Paul Ritter's "KatieBird*Certifiable Crazy Person" is truly one of the best horror films that I have ever seen. In a day & age of horror films filled with alot of the same-ol same-ol(wich can be very nice at times-but not all the time) this film rears its beautifully ugly & uniquely artistic head & shines like a pussed up soar thumb cooking like a hotdog on a grill in the hot sunny mid-day of august & I loved it! Like Eric Stanze's "ScrapBook" & Wes Craven's "Last House On The Left" This film is so viciously relentless(or realistic) that you feel like taking a shower after watching it or you question yourself for watching it & the scary thing is that this film has more substance in one of it's pinky fingers than both of the movies I just named above. This is a brilliantly vulgar horror masterpiece that builds & builds throughout until it erupts like a steaming hot blood spitting volcano. This is the definition of real life horror!

HASH(0x9c8bb968) out of 5 stars Great Horror Film Oct. 25 2006
By Mia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a story about one girl's coming of age and her father who passes down to her that old family tradition of being a serial killer. It's an artsy type of horror film. I thought the cinematics in it were great, but I guess I can see how it made some people dizzy. I also found the acting to be surprisingly good, especially being an indie horror film. I thought that the actors who played teenage Katiebird and her father did an especially good job. I 1st rented this movie thinking that it would either be entertaining enough or really suck. I ended up liking it so much that I decided to buy it after. Warning: it is gruesome!
