How to Be a Serial Killer is a 2008 American black comedy film about a young serial killer who imparts his knowledge to an eager pupil. Written and directed by Luke Ricci, the film stars Dameon Clarke, Matthew Gray Gubler, Laura Regan, and George Wyner.


Mike Wilson (Dameon Clarke) is a charismatic, educated, and articulate young man who has found his life's purpose in exterminating people. Determined to spread his message about the joy of serial murder, Mike recruits a lost soul named Bart (Matthew Gray Gubler) to be his pupil and leads his charge through the "ethics" of murder as well as teaching him various lessons in disposing of corpses, balancing work and play, methods of killing, and many more. Mike and Bart's curriculum is interrupted when Mike's girlfriend Abigail discovers what's beneath her boyfriend's charming exterior and Mike and Bart must kill their way out of being discovered by the cops.
