Boxful of Nuts
8 May 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Pardon the flippancy of my title, but it would seem that there is a suspect list full of psychotic or sociopathic figures. They are centered by a psychologist/pathologist. The are joined by their unhappy, brutal childhoods and their acting in the most violent manners possible. The one suspect is certainly a dangerous, but is he viable? A round robin of violent actions and a child killer in prison make this quite a task when it comes to seeing the reality of stuff. Human emotion can be a very dangerous thing. It certainly is here.
