Allen (Mark S. Sanders) is a different kind of serial killer, because he's smart, almost an intellectual, he's well-liked, interesting enough to be interviewed about his life as a serial killer, and he doesn't do it for sexual kicks of a sense of self empowerment. Plus, he's got a good job, and a girl at work, Denise (Daisy Gibb), is in love with him and would probably be able to turn his life around.

There's just one problem with that, it's all in his mind, in real life, Allen is a low-life loser who works as a dishwasher at a third rate diner, the woman he loves prefers to ignore him, he actually does have sex with corpses, eats them to feel strong, drinks too much to silence the voices in his head ... and the guy who interviews him - he's just a featureless demon Allen has made up. Only the serial killing part of his story is real - and way too much so. He is still smug about all of this though, but the gruesomeness of his crimes puts his so-called philosophy behind the crime to shame. And that he hasn't been caught yet is hardly his merit but the police's utter failure. And as for well-liked: Allen is socially awkward, and the one friend he has, Bill (Michael Brecher) he hates, and he only hangs out with him because he's always got great cocaine.

Well, to label Allen a ticking timebomb would be a gross understatement, but as we follow him through seven days of his life and witness his increasingly desperate attempts to attract Denise's attention, we see things going from bad to worse to ...

 

There are more than enough serialkiller films out there, and also plenty of those who put the killer himself in the center of attention, make him the protagonist ... and yet, 7th Day does stick out from the crop because of its original and highly ironic approach. Sure, there is all the gore you'd expect from a movie like this, dismemberment aplenty, enogh gross-out scenes to gross out everyone - and yet the focus is more on Allen's twisted mind than his deeds, on his ability to turn his barbaric deeds into something highly reasonable. And while Allen tries to explain everything away, make up excuse after excuse, the camera shows the actual action in a blunt, grindhouse-style way to contrast everything said in a truly macabre way.

Sure, because of the gruesome nature of some of the pictures, you might need a strong stomach, but even more so a dark sense of humour ... and then you'll utterly enjoy this movie!
