Out of all the films to get trashed at this year’s Sundance Film Festival The Killer Inside Me took the cake. The audience’s reaction to it was less than stellar (listen to the outrage) and at one point a woman had to be physically removed from the theater because she was shouting her disdain at the top of her lungs.

No matter how you feel about the film it’s coming out this summer and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. If you don’t want to see it, don’t watch it but if you do here’s the trailer…

The Killer Inside Me is based on the 1952 Jim Thompson novel of the same name and remains brutally faithful to the material. The story follows a small town sheriff who goes from protector of the innocent to a deranged killer in the blink of an eye. The main reason so many critics panned the movie at Sundance was because of its depiction of violence against women.

The trailer plays it safe and doesn’t show the extent of the abuse but you get the feeling that something darker is brewing beneath the surface. Take a look…

The Killer Insider Me is directed by Michael Winterbottom and debuts in theaters on June 18, 2010.
