The character of "Theodore 'Ted' Handy" is a reference to Theodore 'Ted' Bundy a notorious serial killer, rapist, kidnapper, and necrophiliac who assaulted, kidnapped, raped, and murdered dozens of young women throughout the 1970s, and maybe earlier. While being pursued, then caught, and prosecuted, and imprisoned, he made continuous and consistent denials, only confessing, immediately prior to his execution, to about 30 murders committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978. His actual number of victims is still unknown, and is likely considerably higher. Bundy was considered handsome and charismatic by his victims and potential victims, which he exploited in order to gain their trust. He typically approached them in public places, faking a disability or injury, occasionally impersonating some sort of authority figure, thereafter overpowering and assaulting his victims in a quiet, remote location, such as the abandoned building as depicted in this movie. Bundy was executed by the State of Florida in 1989. See more »

Dead Silence is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. It has all the elements necessary for a quality film. Drama, suspense, action, and even the occasionally witty comment by the all-star cast are present. Drama and action, specifically, are present in spades. James Garner truly shines in his role as the conflicted FBI agent John Potter, as does James Villemaire, who portrays the character Sonny, one of the kidnappers of the deaf children. Dead Silence is a one of a kind, edge of your seat movie, sure to keep you guessing till the climatic finale. I recommend this film to all, as everyone should see this exemplar of modern film-making.
