Ulli Lommel: Someone Please ..... This Guy !!!
16 October 2008 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Director Ulli Lommel should be burned alive: also Son Of Sam is another unwatchable mess with only one question: why was it made ? What was he thinking ? Serial-killer movies based on true events can certainly be worth watching and educational: it is some sort of history, if you ask me. I was pleasantly surprised by the made for TV-movie Capture Of The Green River Killer which was on a couple of months ago. Or The Hunt For The BTK Killer.(NOT the Ulli Lommel version !!) David Berkowitz was never an interesting serial killer like Gacy, Bundy, Dahmer or the BTK-killer. Spike Lee made "Summer Of Sam" back in 1999 in which the killings only took place in a back-story. Even he was not interested in telling the tale of Berkowitz. Berkowitz killed mainly young couples in their cars with a gun at point blank. He later admitted that the neighbor's dog barked at him the commands to kill. The dog was possessed by Satan stated David.

Lommel presents us with a cast that lacks any talent or charisma. The story is stupid, slow and annoying, filled with irritating flashbacks, vague dream-sequences and so on. Shot with your average video-cam, any man could have made this movie, much better than this failure.

I watched about half an hour of it, than a fast forwarded.. it never got better. In fact, after 10 minutes you already realize you have a turkey on your hand.

The short story: This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen
