Tony: London Serial Killer
Open iTunes to preview, buy and download this film.
The outstanding debut from Gerard Johnson, Tony has been compared to classics Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and Taxi Driver and is one of the most important and disturbing British films of recent years. Unemployed and unemployable, Tony is a sympathetic recluse with severe social problems, an addiction to VHS action films and a horrible moustache. Occasionally he snaps and murder is the result... Featuring a star-making lead performance from Peter Ferdinando, Tony is dark, brutal and bleakly amusing and will stay with you long after you finish watching.
Meet Tony, perhaps the most understated and naturalistic Serial Killer
the film grabbed me from the first minute with a deliciously dark, creep and comic turn by Peter Ferdinando as the titular character. Made with an intelligence rarely seen in this end of the genre scale, Tony is fascinating from beginning to end, and offers a great social comment on London's outsiders, and how society treats the 'invisible' amongst us.
I love this film. Definitely worth seeing, I had the opportunity to see the premiere and meet the main cast and director and I have to say they are all great people to have made such an atmospheric movie on such a cheap budget.
Peter Ferdinando plays Tony, a time-warped social odd-bod, and a character that you can never really quite get to the bottom of, which makes it all the more intriguing a film to watch.
Gerard Johnson does a sterling job of portraying Tony's surroundings as isolated, dark, and atmospheric, and I love that he was brave enough to end a horror movie so differently to any others of the same genre.
I was lucky enough to catch a preview of this movie earlier in the year, and thought it was absolutely brilliant.
Tony launches two great new talents in cinema. Peter Ferdinando's performance is flawless and the director Gerard shows incredible flair.
Def worth watching. Just dont watch it alone and with the lights out!!!
