Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Compellingly illuminates how the monsters among us leave more than corpses in their wake.
Fresh: For hardcore Dahmer obsessives only.
Fresh: Too bloodless for the uninitiated and too remedial for the familiar, but still artful in its own right.
Rotten: Thompson assembles his footage with an expert's touch, but what his film lacks is its own perspective on these atrocities.
Definitely not up to par
Felt like something that you should be on tv, for free. Amateurish filmmaking with poor reenactments. The 2 main people interviewed aren't that interesting, especially the police officer. Do not pay for this.
Other than the fact that they have interviews with the neighbor and detective, this movie is very weak. There is really almost nothing about the killer. No insights or interesting bits of information of any kind. I was honestly waiting for it to get good and it just never did. The interviews don't give you anything of substance. Even the pointless reenactments of him at the store, riding the bus, watching tv, etc. we're poorly done. I seriously think they could have reenacted something a bit more purposeful, I just don't get it. How did this even end up on the iTunes Store?
What a waste!
I believe this could have been a better documentary if you would have shown actual footage, and got rid of the the "crack lady" how can she remember? she was high!...terrible. don't waste your money. you can get a better story from the "Enquirer" a waste of money!
