Storyline

"The Craigslist Killer" follows the dark, mysterious life Philip Markoff (Jake McDorman) conducted online while preparing for a promising future as a doctor and a life of happiness with his fiancée, Megan McAllister (Agnes Bruckner). Seemingly destined for greatness as one of Boston University's brightest med students, Markoff could do no wrong in the eyes of Megan, his friends, fellow students and professors. But hidden from those close to him was the violent wrath only he and his victims knew - beginning with his alleged April 14, 2009, first-degree murder of a masseuse who advertised her services on Craigslist. When police discover that the brutal killing and a number of other attacks on women were all connected to advertisements placed on Craigslist, their investigation ultimately leads them to Markoff.

Well made tragedy
21 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A well made true life murder movie tragedy. This Lifetime movie about the Craigslist killer is well cast and well acted with a likable cast. The screenplay is well written and shows what you want to see. The story is so interesting that the movie is fascinating to watch.

Jake McDorman looks suitably wholesome as the medical student with a dark side who had a promising future. The escalation of his obsession is frightening to watch. Agnes Bruckner is quite good as the girlfriend who had no idea she was living with a killer.

The needless self destruction and insane obsession that led to killing is quite tragic.

Worth a watch.
