An enjoyable time-waster.
9 October 2008 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

An armed male intruder breaks into a women's dorm and with a gun and a butcher's knife binds and gags all the residents.Then one by one he stabs them cruelly and with great brutality.All of that happened in Chicago on the night of July 14,1966 in a dormitory that housed eight nurses who worked at the South Chicago Community Hospital.The perpetrator was Richard Speck,then 24,a drifter born in Illinois,raised in Texas,wandering from petty crime to petty crime and bar to bar.He had the words "Born to Raise Hell" tattooed on his arm."Chicago Massacre:Richard Speck" is a fairly accurate portrayal of this murderous loser.Of course some scenes are obviously fictionalized,so true crime buffs may be disappointed.The central performance of Corin Nemec is pretty good and menacing.The film is not as grimly effective as "Born for Hell" from 1976.Worth a rental but nothing more.
