Depalma should study this for his upcoming film on the same subject.
5 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brutal Kills,Tension,Scares,Beautiful Women, and a well thought out story make this a 10 in my book.

For any of those of you who aren't familiar with Mike Feifer's past true crime/serial killer productions (Ed Gein:The Butcher of Plainfield, Chicago Massacre Richard Speck,and upcoming Ted Bundy)he's fast making a name for himself as one of the best horror directors in the business.

In "The Boston Strangler:The untold story" Feifer explores the dark psychology consuming Albert Desalvo and brings a completely fresh take to the story by expanding on the possibility that Albert Desalvo wasn't really the Boston Strangler. The film suggests that Desalvo was seeking notoriety as his motive to confess to the crimes committed by the Strangler and brings in another possible suspect (played to a tee by Kostas Summer)as the true strangler. This theory was discussed for years in newspapers following the Strangler Murders but has since faded from the public's memory until now. A MUST SEE FOR THE HARDCORE HORROR AND TRUE CRIME CROWD!!!
