Loved this movie!!!!
16 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was soooo good. Remarkably, I saw it accidentally. The movie, "Deadly Friends" with Kristy Swanson from 1986 was supposed to air, which I had already seen, so from the beginning, I knew there was a programming error. I watched and watched and watched waiting to see if they would say the real name of the movie, but Oxygen actually stated on the screen, "Now, Deadly Friends." So I had to find the name of one of the characters and google them to find out about this movie. I was amazed and saddened to find out that is was a true story. I'm glad I was going to watch a repeat of that awful movie, "Deadly Friends" or I would have never seen this. As far as the death penalty if he was in the States, I guess it depends on which state he was in. Texas? He's a goner.
