Cannibal

A meticulous lead performance by Antonio de la Torre is the one saving grace of this dumb, arty horror movie from Spain (2013). He plays a mass murderer working as a tailor in the small city of Granada and preying on strange women who pass through town; when the sister of one victim moves there to look for her, he offers to help, deflecting suspicion from himself and drawing the sister closer. The insights into aberrant psychology are lifted from other serial killer movies, most obviously Psycho, though the blandly handsome aesthetic is more reminiscent of the international festival circuit. Director Manuel Martín Cuenca and Alejandro Hernández adapted a novel by Humberto Arenal. In Spanish with subtitles.
