Greatest horror short film ever made about a serial killer., 24 June 2005
Author: Glen Grefe ( from United States

Seriously - as a fellow filmmaker, horror fan who has seen it all - Jim has made the most incredibly gory, raw, repulsive short movie in the history of cinema. This is an uncompromising glance into the world of your next door neighbor: a serial killer/psychotic loner who lives in a infested house of filth, torture and human remains... who seems to be hanging off the razor's edge of complete madness - even his television, which appears to be his last link to the real world, appears to be decaying as it can no longer play "babysitter" to his deteriorating insanity. This is a MUST-SEE film (I was lucky enough to get an autographed copy on VHS years ago) available with Jim's incredibly disturbing and horrifying true crime short, My Sweet Satan. Jim VanBebber ranks among the very elite independent filmmakers of ALL time - not just in Dayton (where Guided by Voices - one of the greatest indie bands of all time hails from) or America, but world wide. Tonight, after waiting over 15 years for The Manson Family, I'm finally going to get to see it - thanks for your tenacity, Jim! God bless! - Glen Grefe (Director of Nutcracker: An American Nightmare)
