the townie waitress (spoilers)


ok it's end of shift of her crappy job in her home town where she's loved all her life. her boss tells her to answer the door...and BLAMO! shot dead. I was like, what the f... did he just shoot her? why on earth...?

it seemed a totally random and weird thing.

I came here hoping someone could explain that part to me.

I was waiting to find what massive secret there was about the guy simply being in town. It was like he HAD to kill her just because she saw his face, but then they never went anywhere with that.

It seems completely unnecessary. Maybe they cut a scene that explained it more.

Just finished watching it and came on here for this very subject. Very strange that he would just kill her in cold blood. That part of the movie didn't make any sense whatsoever. I'm assuming it took place in 1979 because the last slaughter was in 1949 they kept saying "every thirty years". And nobody had cell phones. lol.

I like the atmosphere and the setting a lot, but this film has a lot of unanswered questions.

Poorly Lived and Poorly Died, Poorly Buried and No One Cried

came here looking for answers to this too!

I was wondering this as well..

She was never part of the house?

reply

Came here for that too
Yeah they just left that part unexplaind...annoyng
Otherwise pretty decent movie tho

reply

Same question.
I figure the actress couldn't complete her scenes and they needed a way to write her out.
Otherwise it makes absolutely no sense.
Complete WTF scene.

reply

The only thing I can figure is he needed to keep the meeting a secret and if she was there hanging around she'd asj questions or wonder why they were being let in after hours to talk to the main lady. So he just blasted her.

reply

I have no idea why he shot her. I guess it was to keep the town secret? Didn't get it at all.

reply

Like how he killed his wife(she warned them) he may have thought the waitress warned them and she had to be punished or something. or she scared him
