Synopsis by Mark Deming
One young woman's story of how she became a murderer is recounted in chilling detail in this independent horror film from writer and director Justin Paul Ritter. KatieBird Wilkins (Helene Udy) is a woman in her early 20s who is working with a psychologist, Dr. Mark Richardson (Todd Gordon), as she struggles with her emotional problems. As it happens, Richardson is also KatieBird's lover, and the intimacy of their relationship allows him to learn of KatieBird's deepest secret -- she likes to kill people. How this outwardly sweet and loving woman became a multiple murderer is revealed during the course of a session with Richardson that takes a very grim turn as KatieBird looks back on her troubling relationship with her father, Merl (Lee Perkins), and his family. KatieBird: Certifiable Crazy Person was the first directorial credit for Ritter, who started his professional career working as a production coordinator for Roger Corman's Concorde-New Horizons Pictures.
