About the Series

With a competely Saw-style appearance, the series is presented as a classic thriller of the kind that we’ve seen so many of already. No, we don’t have David Fincher to revolutionize the genre, the series wants to stick to the road well-trodden, and, yes, without playing a note out of key at any time, brings us back to the already retro world of video cameras, old monitors and a story that, also retro in its conception, seems either old-fashioned or charmingly familiar.

As always, beauty is in the eye of the beholder: Copycat Killer has nothing original, it is true, but it is also true that it has all the characteristics to – without becoming a success – give us everything we are waiting for (but no more), serve it up just as we expect and in the way we feel comfortable with.

It ticks all the right boxes, and it does it well.

So, if what you want is a serial killer thriller which is completely classic in every way, with a highly-polished atmosphere and with good eighties photography, markedly retro and without any compunction to change the aesthetic sense of future centuries, this series can be considered to be good entertainment.

Enjoy it.
