Thought this'd be much more exploitive, but the film was done fairly tastefully. The meat of the movie is the timeline of catching BTK. Robert Forrester is great as always. Gregg Henry gives a real effort of a performance that hits more often then it misses the mark severely. The weakest aspect of the film are the cuts throughout time periods with the actual murders in the 70s being done so weakly and mercifully that the horror of the crimes are completely lost and worst disrupt the good storyline going on in the 90s. Worth a gander if you're at all familiar with BTK, but far from a most-watch.
Serial killers are supposed to be scary, especially true stories of serial killers, but I found myself literally yawning. This is a waste of time. I sincerely wish I could get my time back. Lots of lame dialogue, hardly any action, and just...bleh.
anyone who has actualy LIVED in Wichita will know what a crock of shit this movie is. Bascily, its just formulatic made-for-tv sensationalist tripe with cookie-cutter one-diminsional characters. For the love of god, HE KILLS A PUPPY! The film makes NO effort to genuinely understand either the case-solving process, or the psychologicy of the killer beyond "he's just a bad bad bad bad man!"
