Storyline

Inspired by the real-life serial killer, B.T.K is the gruesome story of Dennis L. Rader, a murderer who systematically tortured and killed his victims for over two decades while evading the police for over 30 years. Living a seemingly normal life as a husband, father, security officer and church president, Rader's unquenchable thirst for blood ultimately led him to commit the most horrific crimes imaginable. Shocking and full of suspense, B.T.K is a grisly journey into the nightmarish world of a deranged killer. Written by Anonymous

Not great, but not bad either...
17 October 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Okay first up, I have never heard of the "BTK Killer" or "BTK films". Must be some sort of American folklore serial killer thing, that I haven't heard of since I'm not American. So my judging of this film is based on THE FILM rather than certain people's expectations of what the film should be.

It's an okay movie. It's one of those (rent) and 'watch it once on DVD late at night when there's nothing else to do'. It's NOT a movie you'll want to watch again and again... like an action blockbuster, because there's not a whole lot that's fun or interesting about it.

BTK, THE MOVIE... is about a serial killer. He ties women up, and generally chokes them to death. Sometimes he uses a gun. There's basically nothing here you haven't already seen in any other serial killer movie, like Ed Gein, Copycat, Henry, etc. In this sense it's fairly straightforward and predictable.

The pace is slow and remains slow the entire duration, but considering this is a low budget straight to DVD exploitation film, the acting is actually surprisingly good from an ensemble of no-name actors, and the star attraction is seeing Kane Hodder as Dennis, burns and all, in a role that's not under a white hockey mask.

I could go on a bit more about the good points and the bad points, but ultimately it's a case of you get what you pay for. This is a cheap, rent and watch once serial killer movie, with Kane Hodder. It's no movie of the week, no blockbuster, and really the only reason to watch it at all... is if you are a Kane Hodder fan.
