Surprisingly Chilling and Effective...Above Average for its Genre
6 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Driven by the chillingly-believable portrayal of Richard Speck by Corin Nemec, this is a brutal, difficult-to-watch film which re-enacts the events of July 14, 1966 when nine student nurses were held captive and eight butchered in cold blood in a Chicago nurses' college dormitory. This movie really packs a wallop, and is a cut above most of its peers within the genre. The sequences inside the dormitory with Speck and the nurses is especially disturbing and frightening, and the actresses delivered worthy performances in their roles; you actually felt their fear as the night of horror progressed. Highly recommended; eight out of 10 rating.
