American Murderer, You Should Be Ashamed

There’s more than just horror to choose from this Halloween.  American Murderer will be a welcomed flick by those who shy away from “scary” movies. Instead you can trade the otherworldly tales for a more action-packed cat and mouse thriller.

Based on a true story, this riveting thriller follows Jason Derek Brown (Tom Pelphrey), a charismatic con man bankrolling his extravagant lifestyle through a series of scams. On Brown’s trail: Lance Leising (Ryan Phillippe), a dogged FBI special agent determined to put Brown behind bars.

When Brown’s funds run low and his past catches up with him, he plots his most elaborate scheme yet, pitting himself against Leising in a deadly game  — and becoming the most unlikely and elusive fugitive on the FBI’s most-wanted list. Available on DVD
