Comments: Johnny as a child we see was abused by his babysitter. This carried on and affects him as an adult now.
Johnny comes across as a loser. You can also see in his behavior around water he is disturbed. So his first time back in a pool does prove exciting for him. It brings back all the rage and frustration he felt as a kid.
The look on Johnny’s face after he kills is priceless. His fear of water is gone and replaced by a water based killer instinct.
Johnny is a psycho. His best friend now is not all together there either.
Johnny does not have any remorse over those he kills. He enjoys it though. It is something else to see how Johnny acts like what he is doing is normal. His best friend Brandon becomes like his cheerleader.
It is sick that people actually look up to Johnny for being a serial killer. Johnny is a sick sick man.
Things with Johnny just get worse for him. He just kills everyone around him. He kills and kills. His attitude is so strange. The actor plays this character as one crazy guy.
Randy Wayne plays Johnny Taylor and he delivers a superb acting performance.
