Detailed plot synopsis reviews of I Must Kill

Don Walters (Wilbur Scott) is a newspaper salesman who lives in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. One day, while out in the woods with his friend Robin (Melissa Green), the two of them discover a woman's dismembered hand lying on the ground. Taking it back to his home, Don decides to call the police as well as his friends: Steve, an annoying man who only says his name and "Ok"; Carrie, Robin's white-trash twin sister who mistreats her baby; and 'Uncle' Mike, a babbling alcoholic who likes to scream 'POW!' every other word or so. Don and Robin are both eager to find out where the hand came from, and believing someone may be injured out in the vast wilderness surrounding them (and with the nearest police hours away), decide to split the group up to find out just what happened.

After some unsuccessful sleuthing, Mike goes back to his apartment and gets drunk. Having a dream in which he sees Don make love to a woman wearing the same ring found on the disembodied hand, he returns to snoop around Don's always-locked garage and is murdered in the process with a meat cleaver. Shortly afterwards, Detective Kennedy (Timothy C. Arthur) arrives to the house, an arrogant, self-centered cop who vows to bust the case wide open, proclaiming all of them to be suspect. Joining the dull Steve (whom Kennedy believes is the only one dumb enough not to have killed anyone), the two of them search out in the woods, where they find a blood-crusted machete, and then trace the clues back to Don's locked garage, where Don is waiting inside with the answers to the mystery.
