Dr. Hudson incorrectly says that Peter Kürten was a serial killer in the 1930s. Kürten committed his first known murder in 1913 and the rest in 1929. While Kürten did attack several people in 1930, they all survived. He was arrested in May 1930 and executed in July 1931. See more »
You heard me, you little twerp. Do you think I'm afraid of you?
I know you are.
I know all about you. You're just a sad, second rate, boring, impotent little copycat.
Watch it bitch or I will slice that smile off your face, do you hear me?
Daryll Lee couldn't get it up either.
DO YOU HEAR ME?

Sigourney Weaver plays Dr. Helen Hudson, a retired psychiatrist that specializes in serial killers. Hudson is agoraphobic and suffers with different degrees of stress and depression. Holly Hunter and Dermot Mulroney are detectives trying to catch a serial killer. Harry Connick, Jr. plays a serial killer behind bars and taunts Hudson as she tries to help the investigators. The killer wants his own fame for duplicating famous murders. The background score will help your nerves jitter. Hunter is not convincing as a police officer. Mulroney's character is as bold as cardboard. Connick, Jr. is quite funny in a cynical way. Weaver conveyed her character's fear and anxiety. And without a change of expression, was bribed out of a pair of her frilly panties in exchange for information about the killer's identity. Dim the lights and enjoy.
