The true chilling story of the "two of a kind", killin' cousins Angelo Buono and Kenneth Bianchi, better known as the Hillside Stranglers, is told in this TV drama. The movie concentrates on the killers story, as well as on the life of Officer Bob Grogan, who investigated their case. Look for the real Bob Grogan as the Washington cop who arrests Kenneth Bianchi!

The true chilling story of the "two of a kind", killin' cousins Angelo Buono (Dennis Farina) and Kenneth Bianchi (Billy Zane), better known as the Hillside Stranglers, is told in this TV drama. The movie concentrates on the killers story, as well as on the life of Officer Bob Grogan (Richard Crenna), who investigated their case.
I appreciated how well this followed the true story. Obviously a fair number of things were changed because it was television and had to fit a full narrative in 90 minutes. But still pretty great. I wonder about the German psychic who claimed the killers were "two Italian brothers" -- was that real??
This film has a quirky Billy Zane, early in his career. Zane has had his highs and lows, and I would put this among his better parts. This film could possibly be released to DVD and do okay.
And then we have Farina with a big mustache; to many viewers, he might seem perhaps a bit old to be Zane's cousin. However, in real life the stranglers were about twenty years apart, so this is quite accurate. I love how easily a former police officer can play a cold-blooded crook.
