22 May 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I never saw a flick with Scott Anthony Leet but what he performed here really did impress me. His face and his laughter really gives you the creeps. And after doing some research on William Bonin he really looked like him. As you all know who follows me on the net I'm not only into horrors I do dig serial killers too. And I have seen a lot of movies about serial killers, some really bad (B.T.K. for example with Kane Hodder) and some really good. This one here I do file under a real good one. Why, because it delivers what you expect from such kind of movies. You really go into the character and not that much into his killings. Now and then we are confronted with some killings and they are gruesome. It isn't all based on the real life of William, he was a pedophile and killed 45 boys. But he was also as we can see in this movie the first one who got a lethal injection. The fact of Vernon is true but he had more companions than shown in this flick. Of course the director couldn't show them all, then he should have made a flick like The Deliberate Stranger or To Catch A Killer which both clocks in over 3 hours (to catch even clocks in at 360 minutes). It's funny to mention To Catch A Killer because Scott did remind me of Brian Dennehy's performance. I guess that the production changed the names of his companions with a reason, just let me say that William Pugh was sentenced to 6 years. Bonin was prisoned for 17 years before he got his injection so the end of the flick wasn't really right. Whatever, a great flick to see and collect if you are into serial killers and horror. And of course don't forget to catch the short performance of Eileen Dietz of The Exorcist (Pazuma) fame and it's also funny to see Michael Rooker playing the good guy in a serial killer flick due his fame as a serial killer in Henry: A Portrait Of A Serial Killer.
