Ever since a traumatic experience with a serialkiller known as the Trash Man (Derek Robert Hull Bond), Caroline (Jo-Ann Robinson) suffers from severe agoraphobia, resulting in her not having left her house in some 20 years - much to the distress of her son Justin (Christopher Wesley Moore), who sees himself forced to look after her and have no social life outside his job at a fast food place, even if a colleague, Leo (David Moncrief), shows interest in him, and he's not at all uninterested himself. Meanwhile, Caroline's best friend Marita (Keni Bounds) plans a romantic dinner with her boyfriend Beau (Jeff Buchwald) and wants her "helicopter daughter" out of the house at all cost, pretty much forcing her to go on a trip with her best friends Paige (Meredith Mohler) and Nicki (Cami Roebuck) - but that trip is cut short by ... the Trash Man, who slaughters his way through town just to get to Caroline to finish what he has started back when ...


Of course, at its core is a slasher, so much so that a character mentions Halloween, the mother of all slashers, early on in the proceedings. But while When the Trash Man Knocks has all the suspense and jump scares in all the right places and doesn't shy away from violence neither, the film's real strength is its character building, so that the film in its less than 100 minutes running time presents us with several fleshed out characters, each with their own arc, and all of them very relatable for sure. The other thing is, the film is very unforgiving in its choice whom to kill, which comes all the more shocking as the audience has become really invested in at least some of them. And that's really the strength of the film then, that it gets one at an emotional level rather than the purely visceral level usually prefered by slasher movies, and that makes this one a pretty unusual but highly enjoyable slasher ride.
