I enjoyed it.

It's That eerie kind of spooky. Doesn't really make you jump just spooks you out. They're solving the case as if though they were watching a horror movie. The more they discover about the killer the more it unwinds them, but unlike us they have genuine concern.

Awaking the Zodiac takes a new spin on the Zodiac killer with the concept that he's been hiding out for 40 years, and somehow a couple in a rural part of Virginia come across his old films of his murders, and force him out of hiding. Kind of like the idea that they take something that actually happen and turned it into their own fiction.

Was OK movie. Really like how the whole thing was laid out. Not a bad mystery at all. I liked how everything unfolded.
