I still get chills when I think about it!
15 December 2003 | by (my home) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate to see An Ordinary Killer on it's premiere night! This movie was so well written, produced and portrayed withso many details to take in, I went back to see it for a 2nd time!

I was highly impressed w/ the quality of this film, from the great cast of characters and moving/chilling storyline to the captivating narration and filming. It seems as though, every detail was thought of from hair and make-up (especially impressed with the age progressions of the characters),to the scenes and wardrobe. It puts you right there...and it's real! I still get chills when I think about it!

If you enjoy movies based on true stories and full of intrigue, drama and a touch of humor with twists and turns that keep you guessing as to who did it...then this one is for you!
