Extremely Odd Film About The Community Spirit & Resilience Of The People Who Lived Down The Same Road As A Serial Killer
Making A Mockery Of Murder ~ This is a film about the Suffolk Strangler/Ipswich Ripper murders. Steve Wright is currently serving life imprisonment for the murder of five young women in Ipswich,Suffolk.The film focuses on the local community and how it pulled together and recovered from the shock of his grotesque spree killings. It features the real and unscripted words of the local residents put in the mouths of actors.It's presented in the form of a light hearted musical which is bizarre and slightly disturbing.These killings took place during the winter of 2006 which is only nine years ago - it's very insensitive for the film industry to exploit this tragedy & disregard the grief of bereaved parents in the pursuit of entertainment.
