A young boy is forced to become a serial killer in training.
WHY WE PICKED IT: This subversive horror film from Jennifer Lynch (daughter of David) offers a disturbing yet thoughtful look at cyclical violence.
On their way home from the movies, nine-year-old Tim and his mother are abducted by cab driving serial killer Bob, who murders the mother but keeps the young boy chained in his home as an unwilling protégé, forced to bury the bodies of the young women he kills. Years later, a teenage Tim, now renamed Rabbit, is pressured by Bob to follow in his homicidal footsteps and must choose between escape and acquiescence.
