I AM BAD is the voyeuristic story of a serial killer in love. Shot entirely from his point-of-view, we see what he sees, and travel through his life from his brutal childhood to the power he reclaims as an adult when he begins to feel the thrill of killing. Then he meets Anne. She’s training to be a psychiatrist. Now his life alternates between the warmth and love he feels with Anne, and the horrific bloodshed he creates in her absence.
An android fighting-machine (Mario Van Peebles) is charged with destroying a small brigade of rebels in a Latin American war who are fighting to maintain their freedom and protect their village. Contrary to his programming, Peebles decides to stay and assist the rebels in their plight. Having gained this information, his “creators” develop a more powerful android to try and defeat him.
