Goofs

The newspaper clippings Richard Speck has taped up in his prison cell appear to be contemporaneous with the time the scene was actually filmed. One visible headline, "Suspects jailed in filmlike bank job," coincides with a Los Angeles Daily News story of September 16, 2006. Another headline, "Congress asks 4 to testify in HP probe," fits with a spying scandal during the same month that involved executives at Hewlett-Packard and information leaked from its boardroom.

Not Bad...
8 January 2008 | by jeffronthiSee all my reviews

This is decent fare for a b-horror, serial killer flick. I have seen most of Uli Lommel's works and these are much better. Sure, some of the material isn't perfectly matched to the real story, but low-budgets will make you sacrifice some.

Pros: Better than most direct-to-DVD serial killer flicks, good acting with main characters, decent cinematography.

Cons: continuity, production. Bad kill scenes.

It is hard to ask any of these low budget directors to make a decent b-flick anymore, so for what I was expecting, I came away a little impressed.
