Since childhood, Nebraska farm-boy Charles Starkweather has a schizophrenic Mr. Hyde side, a nameless dark figure, who inspires him to be cruel for the kicks. Having grown up to a 19 year old garbageman and fallen in love with weird girl 14 year old girlfriend Caril Ann Fugate, he gets completely out of control, killing of her entire family and various other singles of groups during their ensuing inter-state car-chase, hunted down by sheriff Merle Karnopp and a growing army of cops and press, then unprecedented.

Goofs

When Sheriff Merle Karnopp is waiting outside of a house for Starkweather to come out his partner has a shotgun drawn and pointed at the house. The gun is a solid rubber dummy-gun that prop people give to actors when they don't want to give them real guns. Usually these are only used for deep background or motion, not steady close-ups.

Good Movie
13 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I watch a movie like this, I am hoping to learn or get some insight into the kind of person that would commit these crimes. OK. there are some technical problems with the movie: the scenery, southern accents and all. But I have to disagree with the bad acting comments. The actors were convincing in their roles. It impossible to empathize with a conscience-less murderer but you do get a sense of his lack of compassion for human life. His girl friend is in the same boat - completely amoral. I think the scene where they fall asleep in the same room as one of their bloody victims is a great statement. My sense of the directing is that it was meant to convey a 50's B-Movie style which reinforced the time and sense of these two losers. Inspite of the drawbacks, I did gain some sense of the their personalities which is (to me) far more important than exact historical placement and correctness. Other good movies in this vein: Elephant and Deliberate Stranger (about Ted Bundy). Not so good: Ed Gein, Dahmer.
