Goofs

When Al Pacino mentioned the food dye stamp on the pigs head, he stated " The FDA stamps pig heads with a code number in case of disease." The stamp is true, but the FDA works only processed or adulterated food products; not fresh meat products. This is the job of the USDA, United States Department of Agriculture. See more »

Quotes

Detective Archer: He's killed 4 people every 24 hours. He doesn't stop, that's part of the game.

serial killer movie
25 November 2017 | by serranomaria-19456See all my reviews

I don t know what is harder to believe : the inability of the detectives to arrive BEFORE the murders or the extraordinary effort of the killer to hang those bodies God knows how...

May be for TV... Not the same as The collector, that WAS good.

I agree that Pacino just did it to pay his bills. Well, it is entertaining nevertheless...
