As all serious killers generally suffer from a personality disorder, namely Antisocial Personality Disorder and Narcissistic Personality Disorder, it is the ones who suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder and Schizotypal Personality Disorder that are generally more self-destructive, gruesome or partake in bizarre rituals such as self harm. Because of this, the movie is based on true crime criminology profiles of real life serial killers - mainly those of which who suffered from Borderline Personality Disorder, such as Jeffrey Dahmer, who was apprehended merely a couple of years before the film was made.

All I can say about this movie is "what?" Granted I watched it in the wee hours of the morning, and perhaps my perceptions were skewed but...wow. Very strange. And what was with the Hammer and Nails on the map? this movie comes off as very choppy and incoherent. I'm always glad to incorporate new and different titles into my library... but i don't think I want to admit to having this one. True it is far better than most serial killer movies, because this shows what's going on with the serial killer and not the detectives investigating him. there wasn't a single cop in the movie. Kind of makes you think how he was getting away with everything. especially when he seems so inept to being able to get through the day sanely. I do believe i am now scarred for life.
