Aaron has led a pretty miserable life, an uneventful one to the point
of utter boredom - and the only thing that has kept him going was his
determination to become famous one day. Problem is, Aaron is not all that
talent-rich, he's not much of an actor, his skills as a guitar player are
limited, and his job as letter sorter at the local post office doesn't
exactly spell glamour in big letters. But Aaron figures there's one thing
anybody can do for instant fame: Become a serial killer.
It's not long
before Aaron has the theory down, but when he wants to put his knowledge
to use, he has to come to the realization he just cannot kill anyone.
However, he doesn't give up trying, thinking if he tries often enough, he
will succeed eventually ... but no such luck, he actually ends up marrying
one of his would-be-victims, and they soon lead a comparatively happy
Then one day, an actual serial killer hits the town, and with all
his knowledge about the subject, it doesn't take Aaron long to figure out
who the serial killer is - Charles, his own supervisor at work. Aaron
confronts Charles with the knowledge, but not to threaten to report him
but to ask him to accept him as apprentice. And so Aaron becomes Charles'
apprentice ... but what kind of a man is Charles, what are his motives,
and how safe is Aaron being that close to Charles all the time?
Century Serial Killer is an extremely nice genre satire that works so well
because despite of all the irony and utter absurdity, it never drifts off
into the moronic but takes its subject matter seriously, creating
atmosphere and thrills rather than going for cheap laughs. Plus, the whole
thing is well-paced, never rushes things but never bores its audience
either. Now add to that well fleshed-out characters and a very competent
cast to embody them, and you're left with a pretty good film.
