OscarÂ® nominated actor Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone) gives his most chilling performance yet in the controversial crime drama THE KILLER INSIDE ME. Co-starring Jessica Alba (Good Luck Chuck), OscarÂ® nominee Kate Hudson (Almost Famous), EmmyÂ® nominee Simon Baker (TV's The Mentalist) and Bill Pullman (Independence Day), this modern-day film noir shows a small town sheriff up to his neck in murders: his own. When Affleck's sheriff is asked to railroad a talkative prostitute out of town before she makes trouble, he realizes it's easier to just get rid of her for good. Unfortunately, covering up that murder means eliminating more and more people as his problems and complications spiral out of control. Even worse, he's starting to enjoy committing the crimes a lot more than he ever enjoyed dishing out the punishment. Based on the pulp fiction classic by Jim Thompson (The Grifters), THE KILLER INSIDE ME is "an assured, stylish film" [Guardian UK] that reveals the danger when a lawman's badge is hiding a cold, cold heart.

From director Michael Winterbotton comes THE KILLER INSIDE ME which has electrified audiences at the Sundance, Berlin and Tribeca Film Festivals. Based on the classic novel by legendary pulp writer Jim Thompson, THE KILLER INSIDE ME tells the story of handsome, unassuming small town sheriff's deputy Lou Ford (Casey Affleck). A quiet charmer of his idyllic West Texas town, Ford has a simple life and a pretty girl (Kate Hudson) to come home to. But when the job brings him face to face with a gorgeous prostitute (Jessica Alba) on the edge of town, Ford's fragile world cracks unbridling his own dark urges. In THE KILLER INSIDE ME'S blacker-than-noir universe, nothing is ever what it seems. From the acclaimed director of A MIGHTY HEART and 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE, THE KILLER INSIDE ME is a thrill ride that Stanley Kubrick called "the most chilling and believable first person story of a criminally warped mind I have ever encountered."
