This new slasher seems to have made a huge impression on horror fans last week. Because it is still gutting the competition as it remains the #1 horror movie on Netflix (Non-English) Charts. Let us open the library one more time for Killer Book Club.
In the series:
“Eight young university students meet every week in a book club to share their passion for horror literature. After being accomplices in a costume prank that ends in a fatal accident and a pact of silence, the group of young people will be threatened by an anonymous writer who wants to reveal their dark secret. Their stalker threatens to publish on social networks a bloody horror novel based on them. With every chapter published, one of them will die. While they distrust each other, the group will start a fight for survival in the middle of a university campus. Any one of them could be the next victim…. or the killer.”
Killer Book Club was directed by Carlos Alonso-Ojea and written by Carlos Garcia Miranda. The movie stars Veki Velilla, Álvaro Mel, Priscilla Delgado, Iván Pellicer, María Cerezuela, Ane Rot, and Carmela Lloret.
See what Twitter is saying:
#100DaysofHorror, Day 40: KILLER BOOK CLUB (2023), Directed by Carlos Alonso Ojea. I really enjoyed the 90’s slasher feel of this. Very well done, and so much fun! Also another fantastically creepy killer’s mask to add to the list of good ones! Definitely worthy of the buzz. pic.twitter.com/JNmI4mYzCR

‘Killer Book Club’ (2023) is a seriously kick-ass Spanish 🇪🇸 horror. Think ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ meets ‘Scream’… very reverent of scary movies past while bringing new elements to the table. Coulrophobia… the fear of clowns… is so so real 🤡 pic.twitter.com/hBJilzf3YX

The more I watch Killer Book Club the more it’s starting to look like it took elements from I Know What You Did Last Summer and Carrie (1976)

Who else actually liked Killer Book Club (2023)? Because in my opinion it was a great basic slasher. Taking aspects from Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer? pic.twitter.com/3csALtKqmc

Killer Book Club (2023)
It’s a movie that takes a lot of influence from IKWYDLS and Scream, but doesn’t lean into whether it wants to be a homage or if it wants to stand on its own. It’s a serviceable slasher at least, has some gnarly kills and has a pretty good setting. 4.5 pic.twitter.com/M1usOpHonh
