Based on the novel by legendary pulp writer Jim Thompson (The Grifters), The Killer Inside Me tells the story of a handsome, charming, unassuming small town sheriff’s deputy named Lou Ford (Casey Affleck). Lou has a bunch of problems. Woman problems. Law enforcement problems. An ever-growing pile of murder victims in his West Texas jurisdiction. And the fact that he’s a sadist, a psychopath and a killer. When suspicion begins to fall on Lou, it’s only a matter of time before he runs out of alibis. But in Thompson’s savage, bleak, blacker-than-noir universe, nothing is ever what it seems, and it turns out that the investigators pursuing him might have a secret of their own.

The cast includes Casey Affleck, Simon Baker, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, Elias Koteas, Bill Pullman, Ned Beatty, Liam Aiken, Tom Bower, Brent Briscoe and Jay R. Ferguson.
