You Might Be the Killer is a 2018 horror-comedy directed by Brett Simmons. The film stars Fran Kranz as Sam, a camp counselor who finds himself in the middle of a horror movie-like situation when a group of campers are gruesomely murdered one by one by an unknown killer. As the carnage unfolds, Sam contacts his best friend and horror movie aficionado, Chuck (Alyson Hannigan), for advice on how to survive the night. Chuck advises him to follow the "final girl" trope and stay alive until morning.

However, as Sam and Chuck dig deeper into the camp's history and the killer's identity, they begin to realize that Sam may actually be the killer. With time running out and more bodies piling up, Sam must unravel the mystery behind his own amnesia and the killer's motive before it's too late.

The film's script, co-written by Brett Simmons and Thomas P. Vitale, pays homage to classic slasher films while adding its own twist. The film cleverly subverts genre expectations by making the protagonist a potential suspect and throws in plenty of meta-humor for horror fans to enjoy.

Fran Kranz gives a standout performance as Sam, perfectly balancing humor and pathos as he tries to uncover the truth and stay alive. Alyson Hannigan is also a delight as Chuck, offering a much-needed voice of reason and humor amidst the chaos.

The film's supporting cast is equally strong, with Brittany S. Hall shining in her role as one of the camp counselors caught in the middle of the murder spree. Patrick R. Walker, Jenna Harvey, and Jack Murillo round out the cast as other camp counselors with their own secrets.

Despite its comedic tone, You Might Be the Killer still manages to deliver plenty of suspense and gore that horror fans crave. The film's kills are inventive and gruesome, paying homage to classic slasher films while also feeling fresh and modern.

The film also excels in its production design, capturing the look and feel of a classic camp horror movie while also feeling contemporary. The cinematography and editing are also top-notch, creating tension and suspense throughout the film.

Overall, You Might Be the Killer is a fun and clever addition to the horror-comedy genre. Its strong performances, clever script, and inventive kills make it a must-watch for horror fans, while its homage to classic slashers will also appeal to older audiences.
