Thanks Charlie!

What could possibly be worse than being 15 years old, coming home from school and finding your parents and two younger siblings brutally murdered? That's what happened to Charlie Otero, his brother Danny and sister Carmen in January of 1974. How would you ever be able to resume your life? This film is a look at the life journey of Charlie Otero since the murders, which were committed by serial killer Dennis Rader (aka BTK). BTK terrorized Wichita, Kansas in the 70's and 80's, killing mostly women and taunting the police through the media. It took over thirty years for the police department to catch him and put an end to 10 unsolved murders. As you watch, you can feel Charlie's anger, and by the end of the film, you realize he's made remarkable progress trying to rebuild his his life, and regain his shattered faith in God.

Be forewarned--there are 4-6 absolutely gruesome crime scene photographs shown of each murdered family member--including photos of the two children (both under 10 years of age). At the premiere, which I attended, no children under fourteen years of age were admitted to the theater! These photos are not for the squeamish or faint of heart, however, they do serve their purpose because the viewer cannot help but be outraged at the murder of four innocent people! According to the director, this film is scheduled to be viewed at several upcoming film festivals, so watch for it. Worth the time it takes to see it, in my opinion. Charlie is a likable guy, and by the end of the film, the viewer almost feels close to him. Thank you Charlie, for sharing your story with us, in such an honest way.
