Address Comments To:
At times chilling and suspenseful, this movie plays off America's fascination with serial killers. Thus, it assumes we are familiar with these madmen and have an interest in their grotesque and macabre ways. It has no qualms about parading gore and blood before us. Giving no insight in deterring crime nor criminal behavior, it, in the rotten tradition of NATURAL BORN KILLERS, essentially celebrates these deranged minds. Yet, unlike that movie, it makes no attempt to make a greater statement about American society, and thus ends up as a trivial piece of entertainment in the line of countless other get-the-killer detective stories.
