A Great Documentary
19 January 2004 | by (united states) – See all my reviews

Not only do i watch a lot of movies,I also watch documentaries.And this is by far the best i've ever seen.I got this free when I brought Hannibal on DVD.Looking at the case I knew somthing was creepy about this,because everything seem so real when I was watching it.The reason I said this,because this film has reactments,except none of that fake crap.The people playing the killers are really into the role.Especially the one with Albert Fish and Andrei Chikatilo.This film even gives more infor on the world's most dangerous killers.Watch it,you won't be dissapointed.

P.S. watch this with company if you get scared easily.
