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

Based on the true story of Dennis Rader the BTK serial killer
11 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off people should at least use a Google search to find out what the BTK serial killer did and that he did actually exist as our friend from New Zealand failed to do. Yes, the BTK serial killer did exist this is not one of a series of films of made up serial killers from some company named BTK. Dennis Rader avoided detection and held people in fear for many years before being apprehended. He called himself BTK because he would Bind, Torture, and then Kill his victims. He operated in the Wichita, KS area United States. This film is not a blow by blow account of his misdeeds but rather an assumption of many of them blending truths with suppositions. While this film is not going to win awards it is a look into the twisted mind of a serial killer that seems to fascinate while also disgusting the observers. If serial killers are a subject of interest to you then you will find this film worthwhile, if not then you might want to pass.
