Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!


The film makes a home in your brain and the only cure is to see it again.


A story that's too fascinating to pass by...

This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.


7.6 of 10. This is one of those films where it's best to know as little about as possible or even to be mislead by one of those horrible trailers. The sort of subtle satire and psychotic comedy that will make you laugh and maybe even cry, but not because you regret the amount of money you paid for the popcorn and carbonated GMO liquid.It has a similar feel, partly because of the setting, as The Voices (2014), which is the better of the psycho comedies, but also the more brutal and horrific.The setting of Indianapolis works perfectly to accentuate mundane, ordinary world surrounding them and the sometimes mocking, sometimes subtle comedy revolving around the mysteries: Are you watching another, urban version of Psycho or a comedy revolving a socially inept loser still living at home with his mom? Or could it be some combination of the 2? Exploring that and various other character/psychological flaws keeps the film rolling and makes you wish it had been a little longer to flesh out some of the characters and plot, maybe throw in a few more misleading elements of suspense or terror.If nothing else, for those who hate theaters and Hollywood, it mocks them with unusual harshness for a film.


No outlandish special effects...just a heartwarming story about a quirky young man who faces his demons in a very roundabout way. The cinematography is excellent, as are the performances by Andrew West (Walter), Virginia Madsen, William H. Macy, Justin Kirk, Jim Gaffigan, Neve Campbell, Leven Rambin, Peter Facinelli, and Milo Ventimiglia. If all of these talented actors got on board with this independent film, it should tell you something about its entertainment quality. Get on board, too--watch WALTER and see for yourself. This movie definitely deserves a high review rating.If you've lived past high school, you can relate to Walter. We've all felt left out. We've all focused on something quirky to get us through our days. We've all experienced having a crush on someone who seems out of our range. We've all experienced loss. And most of us have had a time where we turned our life around. WALTER takes you through all of these experiences and leaves the viewer with a feeling of hope and promise.

I have never written a review before. This movie was so bad, so incredibly boring that I felt compelled to say so. That's how bad it is. The plot is missing altogether. The directors took the whole "character development" to silly levels (you know those over done fake "Oscar moments"?) well this movie is riddled with them And no, "Walter" is most definitely not a comedy. Slow, painful to watch, drawn out confusing drama, yes. Comedy, most definitely not. I do not recall a hint of even a chuckle at any stage throughout this entire movie. In fact 90% of this movie was decidedly depressing. And the actors....don't you hate it when they use "big" names to promote a movie on the cover when in fact those actors only have a wee little side role to play?

Typically, when I see a rating this high on a new movie, with very few votes, it's because the movie production company hires people, or has a bunch of their friends over-rate it, to make it look good. Definitely not the case for this movie. This movie touches on so many subjects: Delusions, Nut-job Theists, Imaginary friends (i.e. gods, spirits, ghosts), Emotional Trauma, Broken Homes, Failed Relationships, Social Retardation, Schizophrenia, Psychology, Death, and last but not least, Grief. Anyone who has ever lost a parent to death, or a broken home, will be able to relate to this movie. There were times in this movie where I literally didn't know if I was laughing or crying. Religion has always been used as a crutch for people who cannot accept death; either the death of a loved one, or their own imminent death. The fact that most religions can't even move past the first stage of grief (denial), is masterfully dissected in this movie. Well done.
