Enjoyable film, very "eerie".
25 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Gainesville resident for over 25 years I vividly remember the tragedy that changed this University town forever. I am grateful for this unique perspective that allowed me to see inside of Danny Rollings head, the mind of a crazed schizophrenic. I appreciate the artistry of this film, and feel Zachary Memos was very convincing with his portrayal of this maniacal, very haunting serial killer.

Those who lived through these horrifying events remember, and mourn the loss of these young, and promising students. I do not feel the director is in any way disrespecting or "taking away" from this tragedy, but merely helping us to see a new point of view from the "Ripper" himself, Danny Rollings.
