Preview, Charlie Plummer’s “The Clovehitch Killer” ignores the Boy Scout Oath

Any Boy Scout knows what this one’s about just from the title.

All those knots you’ve got to memorize, one in particular standing out as having a particularly odd name — perfect for a serial killer?

As David Lynch (Eagle Scout, Missoula, Montana and I (Eagle Scout, southern Va.) can tell you, every troop has its guys a little too into knots and knives and what not.

Granted, they’re not going to use the official name “Boy Scouts” — the movies almost never do.

This IFC Midnight release “The Clovehitch Killer” gives Charlie Plummer another chance to go creepy. Samantha Mathis and Dylan McDermott also star, opening in limited release Nov. 16.
