Murder in a small collage town
2 November 2011 | by (brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

***MAJOR SPOILERS*** There's this crazed lunatic running around the collage campus town of Woodside murdering young women and later preforming wield ritual like blood human sacrifices with their bodies. It's collage psychology professors Harold's,Jeffrey Hunter,learned opinion that this killer is a member of the collage staff who's obsessed with killing and using the victim bodies in empowering himself with their ascending souls or sprites. The almost certifiable,for a padded cell a the local mental institution, Harold soon goes so far in finding who this killer that he has his fiancée Daphne, Vera Miles, used as bait in order to get him out into the open and have him captured by the police men with the white suites as well as,in becoming the hero on campus, himself.

Daphne who despite her misgivings goes along with Harold in walking through the woods to entice the mysterious killer to attack her with Harold ready to spring into action as soon as he makes his move on her. This almost backfires on both Daphne & Harold when the killer who turned out to be piano player and song writer Edwin, Alf Kjellin, came charging out of the woods and almost ended up strangled her. It was Harold who gunned Edwin down, only wounding him, that prevented Daphne from being murdered by him.

***MAJOR MAJOR SPOILERS*** Just when you and Daphne thought it was safe to take a walk in the woods at night were shocked to find out that it was non other then the hero on campus Harold who's behind all these killings. Harold who was so immersed in finding out what makes murderers tick had turned into one of them himself! And even more weirder his mind became so warped that he felt that the only way he can show his love for Daphne is by both murdering and dismembering her! We also found out after the truth came out about Harold's strange behavior that he in fact manipulated or hypnotized poor and weak Edwin to commit the murders by putting him into some kind of zombie like state of mind and commanding him,from afar,to commit them!

In the end Harold got exactly what he deserved a lifetime stay at the institution for the criminally insane where he can spend all his free time, which is about 40 to 50 years, in studying his favorite subject himself! And maybe finally find out why people become vicious serial murderers in realizing that by someone becoming so interested in them he, like Harold, can very easily become one themselves!
